The live Q&A session is over now.
You can discuss the answers and also write your feedback in the comments section.
Q. Top 5 movies footfalls wise since 1989?
Ans. Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, DDLJ, Raja Hindustani, Gadar and Bajrangi Bhaijaan in no particluar order.
Ans. Yes, in the second half of 2016.
Ans. Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor and Varun Dhawan.
Ans. No, she is currently waiting for a good script.
Ans. There is no doubt that Emraan is a talented actor. His performance in Awaarapan, Jannat, Gangster and Once Upon a Time in Mumbai was terrific. But it was his too much on-screen kissing and poor choices of films that let him down.
Ans. Khoobsurat was a below average grosser.
Ans. ADHM at multiplexes and Shivaay at single screens.
Ans. After delaying the release of Raees, the makers may have realized the mistake. As we said earlier it should have been released on Bakri Eid. So there is a slight chance that Raees may be preponed if someone wise advise them.
Ans. Housefull was the best as the music was more original.
Ans. Dear, we like to interact with our readers. It is not only QnA session but also a chat.
Ans. Shawshank Redemption.
Ans. 50 crore with a general word of mouth.
Ans. No, the film has finished its lifetime run at 185 crores.
Ans. It will be almost impossible to afford Salman Khan with any another lead actor. Salman charges more than 55-60 crore for each film. But yes Padmavati is multi starrer.
Ans. It’s Sultan all the way.
Ans. We can only talk about the recent release. Films like Queen, Barfi, 3 Idiots, Kahaani, Taare Zameen Par had the best word of mouth.
Ans. It is tough to compare Khans as they are much or less the same. Everyone has their highs and lows. Though SRK was more consistent but currently he is going through a rough phase. 90’s belonged to SRK, 00’s to Aamir and this decade is looking like to be Salman’s.
Ans. Thug is very much on and will be announced this year. His untitled film with Kabir Khan was expected to go on floors this year also but due to some issues the project was delayed and Kabir went on to his next with Salman Khan. Currently we have no idea what will happen to that project.
Ans. Both are just assumptions and it will be unlikely that everything will happen as you mentioned. Anyway SRK, Aamir, and Salman have achieved everything in theri career. They have been ruling the Bollywood since 90’s and no one has come close to them except Hrithik. So it is now all about sustaining in Bollywood rather than a comeback.
Ans. No, Karan Johar denied it.
Ans. Meri Pyaari Bindu starring Ayushman Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra.
Ans. As expected Housefull 3 has right music and it will not change our prediction (150 cr).
Ans. The future of Emraan Hashmi is almost sealed now. Azhar has all the elements to be huge opener (excellent buzz, hit music, help from trade). But it opened way below the mark. Emraan actually lost the plot after Raaz 3. He should have kept on doing films which his core fan following in masses loved. But rather than he opted to experiment and failed. Later on he went back to do films like Mr. X and Hamari Adhuri Kahani but did not succeed as masses were not coming for is films.
Once some said that sequels are money making devices. Emraan should have realized that sooner as Raaz, Murder and Jannat series have been very popular. Now Raaz 4 is his last chance to somehow revive his career.
Ans. Most likely Race 3 will be out earlier than 2018.
Ans. We are a team actually and love each and every actor.
Ans. The website is moderated by two male admins. One is crazy about politics, current affairs, movies and also hopes to join Civil Service. The second one is a professional cricketer. Except admins, we have different content writers.
Ans. Wow, I was always a RCB fan. Unfortunately, I have been unable to watch a single match in this IPL due to my busy schedule. Let’s hope we will win this team. Cheers ?
Ans. Sorry, we are not good at this as we don’t have data of earlier films. Hope that you will not mind.
Ans. It has been many stated that both his upcoming projects Udta Punjab and Rangoon belong to a niche genre and are not targeting 100 crores. Despite having so many flops, Shahid is here because of his superb acting talent. He can turn the tables with a proper commercial masala film having some action.
Ans. Fawad Khan will have an extended cameo in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. He is also expected to star in one of Dharma’s next production. He surely can get huge critical acclaim but it will be tough for him to be a bankable star in Bollywood due to obvious reasons.
Ans. Housefull 3 will be a hit even with mixed word of mouth. But Rustom is a risky project because of genre and release date.
Ans. Bhansali’s next may be.
Ans. Ajay Devgn’s Sons of Sardar is releasing on Diwali 2017. So it is tough that Salman’s next with Rajkumar Santoshi will be released at the same date as both Salman and Ajay enjoys a good friendship (both films will be produced by actors). So either it will be Robot 2 Vs Sons of Sardar or Robot 2 Vs Salman’s next.
Ans. Sultan will be released in approximately 5000 screens and it will cross 40 crores if it is released on Eid day itself.
Ans. Housefull 3 should open in the range of 19-20 crore.
Ans. Well, we cannot say much about the track record of Ajay Devgn. But it is a great decision to release Shivaay on Diwali. The film is carrying excellent reports and its genre (war, history) has been super hot in the trade recently. Shivaay is also shot on a grand scale and its budget is expected to be 120 crore+. The pre-release buzz and hype is also very high.
Ans. 6/10. The lyrics should have been better.
Ans. Kaabil has a very unusual story and it can either be a blockbuster or a disaster. So currently we cannot say much before the trailers come.
Ans. The makers of Rustom are finding a way to avoid the clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro. There were reports that it is releasing on 5th August 2016. In our opinion, Rustom should be postponed to a later date. But guess what makers are in a hurry to release the film.
Ans. Rangoon is looking like a niche film so it is impossible that Kangana will emerge the ruling Queen of Bollywood. She is out from top 10 actresses as her last two films have failed to cross even 25 crore. Do remember that we are only talking about box office numbers (not critical acclaim).
Ans. Probably it was Shahrukh Khan because he was more consistent.
Ans. As per the sources, the cast has been finalized and an announcement will be made within one week. We don’t want to spill the beans but guess it will not be a surprise for you.
Ans. Housefull 3 trailer was average and it looks like the audience of multiplexes will find many problems with the film. It will also carry the negativity of Humshakals and Entertainment. Anyway, it is a popular franchise and will open big at the box office. An ideal target is 150 crore.
Ans. His larger than life personality, style, masala action which is loved by the audience. Salman is one of those rare actors who does not make films for awards or critical acclaim but he does so only for people. His tv show Big Boss has also helped to increase his popularity in masses.
Ans. Sultan trailer will be out in the first week of June. But there is no confirmation yet regarding the attachment to Housefull 3.
