The weekly question and answer session is divided into two parts. The second part will be updated on Saturday.
Ans. Akshay and Ajay never delievered HGTY, a feat which Sunny Deol has achieved twice (Border and Gadar). Though both Akshay and Ajay has survived and has been more consistent. Govinda's hit ratio was poor.
Ans. The release period did not affect its collection but the clash with Bajirao Mastani did. So without clash it would have crossed 200 crore on Dilwali, Eid or Christmas.
Ans. As a solo release, BM would have added 30-40 crore more in its kitty. Though the clash provided free publicity.
Ans. It will have a slight affect only. Shahrukh Khan has apologized for his remark and people may forget the controversy with the passage of time. Especially if the films are liked then it will not have much affect.
Ans. Dilwale has already beaten Bajirao Mastani and will remain ahead at the end. It has collected 385 crore in comparison to 362 crore of BM.
Ans. Airlift can cross 100 crore only if the word of mouth is extremely positive. We are expecting the film to collect in the range of 80-90 crore.
Ans. The film is a success but Shahrukh Khan's last 11 films have been hit, super hit or blockbuster unlike Dilwale which is a semi hit.
Ans. SRK, Aamir and Salman.
Ans. Shivaay is being labeled as one of the most expensive films of Bollywood. But the insider says that it will be made under a controlled budget of around 120 crore. Ajay Devgn has refused to reveal the budget saying that it is too early to talk about.
Ans. 100 crore should not be any issue and the makers will be eyeing much higher than that.
Ans. It would be every director's dream to work with Salman Khan considering his recent form so you can't say that good directors don't offer him films. Recently Salman backed out from Aanand L. Rai's next and also Dharma's Shuddhi. Anyway he has worked with Kabir Khan, Sooraj Barjatya, Sanjay Leela Bhansali etc.
Ans. Budget will be up to 60 crore which is quite high. Coming to collections, even 70-80 crore is looking a tough task at the current moment.
Ans. Dilwale worldwide collection stands at 385 crore, so there is a chance. Let's wait and watch.
Ans. Overseas box office is too tough to predict. By the way the film has received good response in the overseas audience and the clash did not affect much except from North America.
