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.

Q. Will Jagga Jasoos release this year?

Ans. Yes, in the second half of 2016.


Q. Which 3 actors from the younger lot can be called the next Khans?


Ans. Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor and Varun Dhawan.


Q. Apart from Battle of Bittora, are there any upcoming Sonam Kapoor films?


Ans. No, she is currently waiting for a good script.


Q. Emraan Hashmi is really a talented actor but why audience underrated him?


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.


Q. Is Khoobsurat a hit or not?


Ans. Khoobsurat was a below average grosser.


Q. Who will get more screens ADHM or Shivaay?


Ans. ADHM at multiplexes and Shivaay at single screens.


Q. Can Raees be preponed or this is their final decision?

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.


Q. Which is the better music album Housefull , HF2 or HF3?


Ans. Housefull was the best as the music was more original.


Q. What sort of questions are you answering? SRK dominated 90’s, I’m a boy, we are a team, I’m RCB fan etc. What is this nonsense?


Ans. Dear, we like to interact with our readers. It is not only QnA session but also a chat.


Q. What is your favorite movie? Don’t try to be diplomatic.


Ans. Shawshank Redemption.


Q. What is your expectation from Udta Punjab after Azhar?


Ans. 50 crore with a general word of mouth.


Q. Will fan cross 200 crores worldwide?


Ans. No, the film has finished its lifetime run at 185 crores.


Q. Will Salman play 2nd lead to Ranveer in Bhansali’s next Padmavati (the role of Rajput warrior)?


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.


Q. Dangal or Sultan, your pick for HGOTY?


Ans. It’s Sultan all the way.


Q. Top 5 best WOM Bollywood movies of this Century?


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.


Q. How will you define the rule of Khan’s over the Industry? Let the industry be a kingdom on which posts they are?


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.


Q. Hrithik’s big budgeted movie (THUG) with YRF and his announced movie with Kabir khan shelved or not?


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.


Q. Khan’s are at the last stage of their career as age is not on their side. Don’t you think if the clash of Raees-Kaabil happens and Anand Rai’s one also underperforms it will be difficult for SRK to make a comeback?


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.


Q. Is Saif Ali khan doing a cameo in Karan Johar’s ADHM?


Ans. No, Karan Johar denied it.


Q. Apart from Sultan and Befikre are there any YRF releases this year?


Ans. Meri Pyaari Bindu starring Ayushman Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra.


Q. After the music what is your prediction about Housefull 3?


Ans. As expected Housefull 3 has right music and it will not change our prediction (150 cr).


Q. What do you think about the future of Emraan Hashmi?


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.


Q. Is there any plans to release Race 3 before 2018?


Ans. Most likely Race 3 will be out earlier than 2018.


Q. Your fav actor in Bollywood?


Ans. We are a team actually and love each and every actor.


Q. Are you a boy or girl?


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.


Q. According to you which team will win IPL? My fav is RCB.


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  ?


Q. Bolly Arena can you please provide inflated adjusted collections for all the ATBB films starting from Kismat to Bajrangi Bhaijaan?


Ans. Sorry, we are not good at this as we don’t have data of earlier films. Hope that you will not mind.


Q. What are your thoughts on box office prospects of upcoming projects of Shahid Kapoor? Will he able to give a 100 crore grosser?


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.


Q. About Fawad Khan’s next and can he make any mark in Bollywood?


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.


Q. Will Akshay Kumar have 3 hits this year? What do u think about H3 and Rustom?


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.


Q. Any news about Deepika Padukone next Bollywood project?


Ans. Bhansali’s next may be.


Q. Is it true that Robot 2 and Salman’s next are clashing on Diwali 2017?


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.


Q. What do you think how many screens will Sultan? Can it touch 40 crores?


Ans. Sultan will be released in approximately 5000 screens and it will cross 40 crores if it is released on Eid day itself.


Q. Can Housefull 3 touch 25 crore mark on opening day?


Ans. Housefull 3 should open in the range of 19-20 crore.


Q. Ajay Devgan is a good actor but as a director his record is poor. Is that wise decision to release his directorial film releasing on biggest holiday in India?


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.


Q. Rate Housefull 3 music album on a scale of 1 to 10?


Ans. 6/10. The lyrics should have been better.


Q. Raees or Kaabil which is more commercially?


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.


Q. Is Rustom really preponed or postponed?


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.


Q. Do you think Kangana will rule Bollywood after Rangoon?


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).


Q. Who dominated the 90’s decade, SRK or Salman?


Ans. Probably it was Shahrukh Khan because he was more consistent.


Q. Who is doing the role of Alauddin Khilji in Bhansali’s next film?


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.


Q. What do you think about Housefull 3 after seeing the trailer?


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.


Q. What are the reasons of Salman Khan’s craze among single screens audience?


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.


Q. Will the trailer of Sultan be attached to Housefull 3?


Ans. Sultan trailer will be out in the first week of June. But there is no confirmation yet regarding the attachment to Housefull 3.



  1. @Bollyarena……

    I will not be Able to Present at 4Pm today for my personal work………So,

    Im asking 3 Questions here……….

    1. How much will you rate out of 10 To the Music albums of Sarbjit & Housefull 3 ?

    2. Do you like my Comments & Me Bollyarena ??

    3. What is your Prediction for Azhar Sunday Collection ???

    If you Can not answer my Questions……
    I don’t have any problem because I know it’s not easy maintain a Website.

  2. Akki has Ruled the Bollywood: 1992_1996.( Done 46 Movies, 33 Success, 13 Flops. Tops with 33 Successes, since 1996) & 2004- 2009( Rulling the Industry with Huge Box Office Hits Movies.) Khans agar bollywood ko 90’s se ab tak Rule karte aa raha hai toh akshay ne itne din ka bollywood mein aande dete rahe.. Plz Bollyarena mind your Tongue & Post Proper things..

  3. @ Bollywood arena- if you don’t know about 90’s please say no to questions because 90’s starts with 1990 and Salman had four hits befor srk arrival plus one success. then he had biggest blockbuster of century Hum aapke hain kaun. He had 3 hits in 1998 and special apearence in atbb kkhh. top3 of 1999 belongs to Salman now go to both filmography and see how consistent srk was in flops.

  4. 90’s was without any doubt Salman’s year (14 hit movies against 8 for srk) , 00’s was SRK, and this decade is a tie between Salman & Aamir.
    Check your boxoffice facts please.
    (I’m only counting the 3 khan, because the question was about them 3 only)

  5. Biggest hit of the 80’s Maine Pyar Kiya (ATBB)
    Biggest hit of the 90’s Hum Aapke Hain Kaun (ATBB)
    Biggest hit of the 00’s 3 Idiots (ATBB)
    Biggest hit of the 10’s (for now) Bajrangi Bhaijaan (ATBB – biggest grosser is PK)

  6. Bollywood Arena Team can you please explain me on what basis you said that Srk was dominated the 90’s and ahead from Salman in 90’s, Here is the list of both the actors movies and their verdicts:

    Salman Total movies 31 (from 1989- 1999) (From Debuted)
    ATBB – 3 (This does not include KKHH)
    Blockbuster – 1
    Superhit – 2
    Hits – 8
    Semi-Hit – 1
    Average – 2 (It include Above and Below average too)
    Flops – 14
    HGOTY – 4 (1989, 1991, 1994, 1999)

    Srk Total movies 28 (from 1992 – 1999) (From Debuted)
    ATBB – 2
    Blockbuster – 1
    Supaer-Hit – 2
    Hits – 4
    Average – 7 (It include Above and Below average too)
    Flops – 12
    HGOTY – 2 (1995, 1998)

    This clearly shows that Salman was way ahead from Srk in term of Hits, ATBB, HGOTY and number of flops are also almost equal (since Salman did more movies)…..
    So can you please explain in which region Srk was ahead of Salman…and how Srk was more consistent than Salman….It’s clear from above list that Salman was dominated the 90’s not Srk…so stop defending Srk…media always support Srk and degrade Salman…

    Please Reply because we want some clarification that on basis you said that…

  7. dear salman fan its about popularity and the awards. srk gets so many awards in 90s but salman not. thats the reason, u can say that salman also dominated in 90s but less than srk…..

  8. U Mad Aapko sirf khans ki taarif karna ata he kya . Aap jante ho ki agr Akshay kumar Saal mein sirf 1 ya 2 Movie kare jyada prmtns ke sath Eid,Xmas,Diwali pe solo rlz karenge toh Unke Movie Bhi 200cr kama lega Aur Aap sirf kehe rahe ki Khans Bollywood Pe Raaz karte aa rahe he .. Chahe aap jo bolo We Akkians Love Akki sir More Thn Our Life . #ProudAkkian

  9. Hi my question is if salman continues this dream run for another 4 to 5 years will it be fair to say he is biggest superstar bollywood has seen.

  10. 2000-2009 ka star of the decade ka award iifa ka srk ne jita tha 00′ belongs to SRK.
    So SRK rocksssss….

  11. 2000-09 ka star of the decade ka award to SRK ko mila tha na ,so 00’s also belongs to SRK. srk rockksssssssss. IIFA star of the decade Srk male aishwrya female and director Asutosh Gwarikor. Am i right….

  12. “It will also carry the negativity of Humshakals”
    HOW Bollyareana?
    It has different Lead Actor, Different Directors & Different Producer. How is humshakals even remotely related to Housefull 3?
