Q. Is Budget of Krrish 3 and Dhoom 3 more than Ra.One?
Ans - Ra.One landing cost (including publicity & marketing) was around 125 crore. Krrish 3 Total Budget is touted at around 110 crore (Film Cost - 90, P - 20). Dhoom 3 Total Budget will be around 100 crore (Film Cost - 75, P- 20/25). However both K3 and D3 has not given any official figure. In many segments Dhoom 3 budget is speculated at region of 150 crore which is false. It is hugely escalated number. Hence, from above statement still looks like Ra.One budget is still slightly higher than K3 or D3.
Q. Why Akshay Kumar Films doing miserable business at box office? Reason for Boss failure looks like bad content. Screen Count doesn't matter. Ashutosh Mohapatra.
Ans - Akshay Kumar had a dismal year 2013. However he had a very successful 2012 with 3 big hits then. Problem with Akshay Kumar is that he do 3-4 films a year or even more sometimes and there is a saturation point for viewers. Hence, a film if receives bad to mixed review fails at box office. Even his film Special 26 which garnered positive reviews from all corners just become Semi Hit.
Coming to Boss, it was another masala entertainer. 2013 saw three big masala entertainers Himmatwala, Besharam and Boss under-performing at box office. Looks like audiences have woke upto masala genre because of over dose of these kind of films and is ready to watch only selected few which carries good buzz. As for Screen Count it only increases potential for Single Day, doesn't guarantee huge theatrical returns.
Q. Will Ram Leela Score 100 at Box Office as Buzz is huge?
Ans - Ram Leela buzz is just big only in social media. Among real viewers its just average. Ram Leela USP is Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's direction. Ranveer Singh is not a big star right now, and definitely not in comparable position like Ranbir Kapoor for sure. It will be interesting to see how he carries such big film. Yes, if content of Ram Leela is excellent then there is an outside chance of 100. Otherwise realistically collection should be 70-80 crore at most.
