Q. Will Mahesh Babu do any hindi film? (Atik)
Ans. As for now he is not doing any Hindi film. Mostly South heroes have not been successful in Bollywood. Dhanush is the only exception in recent times.
Q. Can Housefull 3 create a new opening record for Akshay Kumar? (Ibrahim)
Ans. Housefull 3 is clashing with Ranbir Kapoor’s Jagga Jasoos. So any opening day record will not be possible. But without clash it should certainly be Akshay Kumar’s highest opener. It is a popular franchise and is releasing post IPL.
Q. The PRDP trailer is not looking very impressive as expected. It is also releasing in festive season so people will be busy. So will it affect box office collection in first weekend? (Siddhartha Saxena)
Ans. Overall PRDP trailer has been liked by audience. Diwali is on 11 November when people are busy in religious festivals. While film will be released on 12th November. So it will not have any kind of effect on the film’s collection. Last year Happy New Year released one day after Diwali and collected 45 crore.
Similarly in 2013, Krrish 3 released two days before Diwali and collected just 25 crore (1st day), 23 crore (2nd day), 24 crore (Diwali) and a huge 35 crore on 4th day.
Q. Can Sunny Deol next Ghayal Returns do 50+ crore business? (Jas)
Ans. There has been a decent buzz around the film. But unfortunately Sunny Deol has not a huge fan following except in Punjab. It should have good music and solid content to cross 50 crore. Otherwise it will be washout.
Q. Why Akshay Kumar’s last 5 release fall in weekdays despite having solid weekends? (Abhishek)
Ans. Except Baby, solid content was missing from these films. That’s why Baby had the lowest fall on weekdays and is also highest grosser of Akshay Kumar in this year despite the fact that its genre does not appeal to his core fan following.
Q. When Diwale trailer will be released? (Sohail)
Ans. The film’s shooting is coming to an end and post production work will start then. We have heard that trailer will be out in the last of October. While the first look poster can be out in a few days.
Q. Looking at the current business scenario, can we say that Aamir Khan is biggest superstar of the country both in domestic and foreign market?(Surendra)

Q. Were footfalls of Hum Aapke Hain Koun higher than DDLJ or not? (Naaz)

Q. What will be the effect of Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani clash on Ranveer Singh’s career? (Mohit)
Ans. Bajirao Mastani is looking promising and also has very good buzz. And if it turns out to be a success despite the clash with Dilwale, then it will give huge boost to his career. On the other hand, it will be a setback for him if it fails as he has worked very hard for this film. It will also mean that he has not given a clean hit in two years. Luckily he has Befikre in his kitty directed by Aditya Chopra.
Q. Why trade figure and producer figures are not equal? And which is more reliable? (Rohit)
Ans. Both have different sources so a difference of 5% is acceptable. Sometimes producers manipulate the collection for their own interest like records, trend etc. Today Box Office India is considered as the authentic website for business tracking. But even they also manipulate a bit for their own reasons. Having said so trade figures are obviously more reliable.
Q. Did Salman have bigger stardom than Rajesh Khanna? (Sohail Solanki)
Ans. A lot of things have been changed in today’s time. But still we cannot compare the stardom of Rajesh Khanna with anyone. Rajesh Khanna starred in 15 consecutive solo hit films in the span of just two years (1969-1971). This is the feat that no one can achieve today.
Q. What will be the lifetime collection of Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani With clash and without clash? (Imran HT)

Q. Why media is writing PRDP is not a youth movie? I’m also belongs to youth and I love family movies. (Umer)
Ans. Obviously Salman Khan fans will like it and will go for it. But the question is will it attract to other youth especially of high end society.
Q. Do you think that colourful sets of PRDP looks like Sanjay Leela Bhansali movies? Who do you think is better among these two directors – Sooraj Barjatya and Sanjay Leela Bhansali? (Prashant Yadav)
Ans. Yeah the PRDP set has some similarity with SLB’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Interestingly the posters of PRDP will also remind you of HDDS. Commercially, Sooraj Barjatya is a bigger director as he has delivered huge successful films. On the other hand Sanjay Leela Bhansali has given classic films like Khamoshi, Black and Devdas which received huge acclaim.
Q. What was the verdict of Hum Saath Saath Hain? BoI gave it Blockbuster status, some gave it superhit status while other declared it hit. (Amir)
Ans. Hum Saath Saath Hain was in between hit and superhit. But it was certainly not a blockbuster.
Q. T-series had recently said Airlift budget is 30 Cr and Akshay Kumar is taking no fees, instead he is going with Profit Share formula with 80-20 share. So if Airlift Budget is 30 Cr, considering it will get at least 15 Cr from both satellite & music rights together, and to recover the cost it needs 15 cr more. So my question is if Airlift scores 45-50 Cr at box office don’t u think it will easily get the HIT tag? (SOUVIK SAHA)
Ans. The budget is controlled but it has to be seen whether they compromise on production values. This is probably because of Akshay’s low run at the box office. Coming to your question, this is only an initial estimation. The budget can be increased further if needed. Other than this at least 10-15 crore will be spent on P & A. So if we consider that the total budget is 50 crore and it recovers 15 crore from satellite and music rights. Yet it has to earn around 70 crore to recover its investment.
