Q. What kind of movie audience are waiting for? Is it mass masala again, like dabangg wanted or like hollywood or emotional drama or something else, asking because most of the  movies of bolllywood is getting flop. wasim khan wsk (via email)

A. Audiences are waiting for movies with good content from any genre filled with entertainment quotient. Most of the movies of Bollywood getting flop because of low content and lack of entertainment value. Film sirf teen chijo se chalti hai, "Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment."

Q. Is Salman Khan An Actor ?? . Why people trolling him for acting.. Is there any performances of him which shut down others mouth. Where he should get award. Faiz Makki (via email).

A. Watch any of these Salman Khan's movies :- Maine Pyar Kiya, Andaaz Apna Apna, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Tere Naam, Wanted, Dabangg, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan. List goes on. You will get your answer. Bajrangi Bhaijaan or Sultan are recent films in which Salman should have easily got an award. Don't take award shows seriously.

Q. 1 - Ranbir kapoor is a big star with lots of talent , why he is doing such a offbeat and limited appreciation type movie? 2 - Why Akshay Kumar movie does not get opening even with excellent trailer response like Rustom , Jollyllb2 and few years back Brothers etc. Rustom has exception as it clashed. 3 - Amir khan upcoming movie list? Tabish Haque (via email).

A. 1. Ranbir Kapoor film choices are mostly bad in recent times. Once, he chooses his script carefully and rightfully, he will be back on track. Dutt biopic is a good choice by the way. 

2. Akshay Kumar got biggest opening with Tees Maar Khan. But after that he chose wrong scripts and that also in plenty. But in last 2 years, his choice of films are getting better. Just need a Pan India film by Akshay right now and it will take huge opening. There is simply no doubt on that. 

3. Aamir Khan movie list - a) Secret Superstar (Diwali 2017, cameo), b) Thugs of Hindostan (Diwali 2018), c) Rakesh Sharma Biopic (Most likely in 2019).

Q. What is the buzz of toilet ek premium Katha? What are the Expectations about Gold? SHUBHAM SINGH (via email).

A. Buzz of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is good. But it was even better after the release of theatrical trailer. From then on buzz is bit down right now. Have huge expectation from Gold.

Q. Is true Tiger Zinda Hai vs Padmavati Clash on Christmass 2017 ..?? Few words About SALMAN KHAN Sensational Success Stardom and This ERA will Be Ruled by SALMAN KHAN ..??? Sainath Turpathi (via email).

A. Tiger Zinda Hai vs Padmavati clash is not happening. TZH releasing on 22nd December, 2017 and Padmavati is releasing on 17 November, 2017. Salman Khan success stardom is unparalleled and unmatched right now in India specially. This recent era (post Wanted) is definitely dominated by Salman Khan alongwith Aamir Khan. Rest all are following and doing catch up.

Q. Who is bigger star at present Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, SSR, Siddharth malhotra or Varun Dhawan? First half of Bollywood was not upto the mark so what is your expectations from second half? Top 5 actor and actress at present in Bollywood? Lucky Singh (via email).

A. As per star power factor: Ranbir Kapoor & Ranveer Singh > Varun Dhawan > Sidharth Malhotra > Sushant Singh Rajput. Expectation from second half is very good. Big star studded films are set to release. Few among those are:- JHMS, TEPK, Baadshaho, Judwaa 2, Golmaal Again, Padmavati and TZH.

Q.  Lifetime predictions for Jagga Jasoos. Which movie will be the dark horse in bollywood this year. Just Rocking (via email).

A. Jagga Jasoos lifetime collection should be anywhere between 55-60 crore nett. Secret Superstar and Padmavati are the dark horses of the year.

Q. In a right film, commercially entertaining, who would bring in more audience to theaters among Ranbir, varun, ranveer??? Varun, Ranveer right now are ahead of Ranbir in terms of box office. .But in terms of Star power Rk is still at the top!!why?? Harshit Patnaik (via email).

A. Just on star power Ranbir Kapoor is more or less equal to Ranveer Singh and ahead of Varun Dhawan. Yes, Varun and Ranveer are right now ahead of Ranbir in terms of box office performance. Varun is yet to give an outright Flop.

Q. Why Salman khan choosing wrong script.. Why doesn't he choose scripts which has universal appeal. Faiz Makki (via comment).

A. Salman Khan is second best to Aamir Khan right now as far as choosing script. He is doing quite well right now. One Tubelight is accepted from him. He is also bound to fail. Tubelight is a universally appealing film. It performed poorly because of bad content and film was boring.

Q. What is Average Ticket Price in 1980's and 1990. Arun (via comment).

A. It is very tough to say exact because there is a significant variance in ticket price from 1980 to 1989 itself. Still, ATP for 1980-1989 will be around INR 1 to 5. ATP for 1990 till release of Hum Aapke Hain Kaun is approx INR 4 to 10. Post HAHK till 1999, ATP is 10-25. Again these are all estimations.

Q. JHMS worldwide screen??? Zain Khan (via comment).

A. JHMS will release in 3500-4000 screens in India and 600-800 screens in Overseas. Worldwide expected around 4100-4800 screens.

Q. Can JHMS repeat Chennai Express success? Sanal Nath (via comment).

A. Very slim chance. JHMS needs extra-ordinary word of mouth to replicate that.

Q. Name top 5 youngster of Bollywood at present? Vikram Singh (via comment).

A. 1. Varun Dhawan, 2. Tiger Shroff, 3. Arjun Kapoor, 4. Sidharth Malhotra 5. Sushant Singh Rajput.

Q. साहो कब रेलीज़ होगी और क्या हिंदी में भी रेलीज़ होगी. Unknown (via comment).

A. Saaho will release in 2018. Tentatively planned for August, 2018. Yes, it will get released in Hindi.

Q. What about judwa 2 ... After Salman cameo 150 cr possible ? Or judwa 2 match standard like judwa 1 Then movie any chance for 200 cr..? Dipak Virval (via comment).

A. Trade expecting Judwaa 2 to collect in the region of 100-130 crores. Theatrical trailer will clear the picture. If Judwaa 2 is anywhere close to the standard of Judwaa 1 then will cross 150 crore for sure. Realistically 200 crore looks out of reach. But never say never.

Q. Which salman starrer movie released eid 2018. Nilesh Ambavkar (via comment).

A. EID 2018 slot is till empty. Chances are very slim that Salman Khan will have a release in EID 2018. If it happens then it will be Salman Khan and Remo D'Souza's next film.

Q. Does Hrithik has any chance to win filmfare next year? Swarup Dey (via comment).

A. Hrithik Roshan has delivered one of his best performance till date with Kaabil. Hence, he has a good chance of getting the Filmfare award. However, still half of the year left and big films are yet to arrive. 



Q. According to You, can Thugs of Hindostan beat Baahubali 2 Hindi Collections? Nitin Sharma (via comment).

A. Thugs of Hindostan is a very big Bollywood project. Film will get released in Diwali 2018. It stars Aamir Khan. By looking at every possible scenario film may challenge for 300-400 crore mark. But touching 500 crore or even challenging Baahubali 2 Hindi collection is a big task. Needs extra-ordinary report to go close to Baahubali 2.

Q. When will the trailer of judwaa2 release. Ashish Jangid (via comment).

A. Till now, no official update on Judwaa 2 trailer release date. Very soon we are expecting some news on that.

Q. After the debacle of tubelight is it right to say Salman stardom is going downward? Sharique Rahman (via comment).

A. No.

Q. Thaxx @addatoday admin for this new creative thinking ..What is the advantage and disadvantage of releasing movie in large no of screens and limited no of screens? Prakhar Tiwari (via comment).

A. Very good question. If film has a universal appeal and a Pan India star. Then it is better to give wide release. Reason, collect as much as possible in opening weekend, because word of mouth take effect from first day itself nowadays. However, if film face value is low to moderate and genre is niche. Then it is better to give release in limited screens. Generally it is the distributors and exhibitors who look into these matters. Wide releases suggest that exhibitors are expecting something big from the film. Top stars command wide releases. 

Q. Expected collection of padmavati? Abhi (via comment).

A. Padmavati is expected to collect in the region of INR 150-175 crores in India.

Q. Box office prediction of top 10 films in year 2018. Pratik Katiyar (via comment).

A. Too early to make such predictions. We always post a detailed box office prediction of most awaited movies for the year in around December-January period. Wait till then. Thugs of Hindostan lead the race so far for 2018 as most awaited film.

Q. Who is the bigget star akshay or hritik? Janbaaz Khan (via comment).

A. Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan are on similar level right now. Hrithik is going through a bad phase. Akshay is at his all time high. However, Akshay is yet to deliver Highest Grosser of the year in his career, whereas Hrithik has already delivered.

Q. Has Hrithik the potential of Delivering bumper opening ? And what is the causes for not giving any bumper by Akshya Kumar? Jaya P (via comment).

A. Hrithik Roshan is a big draw among theater going audiences. He has got every potential to deliver bumper opening. Just need a good script. Akshay Kumar delivered bumper opening with Tees Maar Khan. Even, Rowdy Rathore opened well. He needs a good Pan India commercial potboiler.

Q. JHMS 1STDAY COLLECTION. Rajesh Nagar (via comment).

A. JHMS First Day collection is expected to be around 18-20 crore nett.

Q. Please confirm with upcoming movies of Ajay devgn. Lakhbir Raj (via comment).

A. Ajay Devgn upcoming movies -> Baadshaho (September 2017), Golmaal Again (Diwali) 2017, Taanaji (2018)

Q. Will jhms fall below 100 crore if it get response like tubelight. Will a female oriented film cross 100 crores in the future. Just Rocking (via comment).

A. Hope JHMS does well at box office as Industry badly needs a HIT right now after the debacle of Tubelight and Jagga Jasoos. If it gets same response as Tubelight, then there are chances that it may fall below 100 crore nett mark. 

Female oriented movies can touch 100 crores now at box office. Tanu Weds Manu Returns is a female centric movie with good pan India appeal which already crossed that benchmark.

Q. @addatoday Who is the music director of Anand L Rai & SRK's next up comping project? Sahir (via comment).

A. Meet Bros, JAM8, Sanjeev Chimmalgi, Badshah, Tanishk Bagchi

Q. What is your news on dhoom 4....rumours are srk almost confirmed in it...whats your news. Raj Kumar (via comment).

A. No update on Dhoom 4 right now.

Q. Entire Star Cast Of Tiger Zinda Hai. Crew. Karan Sharma (via comment).

A. Starcast of TZH -> Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Paresh Rawal, Girish Karnad, Angad Bedi, Kumud Mishra. Director - Ali Abbas Zafar, Producer - Aditya Chopra, Music Director - Vishal-Shekhar.

Q. if baadshaho cross 100 cr mark & golmaal again 200 cr mark then he can entry in top 5 stars for huge margin? Ghazal Abbas (via comment).

A. If Baadshaho crosses 100 crore (realistic possibility) and Golmaal Again crosses 200 crore (uphill task, but not impossible), then definitely Ajay Devgn will be in Top 5 by the end of this year.

Q. Why a superb actor and knowledgeable person like srk choosing film like jhms which is flop before release ? Whether he is not getting scripts or something else? Kuldeep Singh (via comment).

A. JHMS is not a flop before release kind of film. Just that film buzz is low right now as compared to recent past SRK films. Also, promos and mini trails suggest, film is missing pan India appeal. SRK is getting good scripts. His next with Aanand L Rai is a very special film. He simply needs a big HIT right now to strike back strong.

Q. Who has been more successful- Sunny Deol or Akshay Kumar? Knight (via comment).

A. In 1980s, 1990s and till mid of 2000s, Sunny Deol was much ahead of Akshay Kumar. In fact Sunny was much senior to Akshay. Post mid 2000 Akshay Kumar has gone ahead and in similar time frame popularity of Sunny Deol decreased. Both are hugely successful stars. Only part is Sunny Deol has given landmark Hits at box office, which is missing in Akshay Kumar's filmography. Sunny has given highest grossers and record breakers such as Border, Gadar in his times. Even Tridev and Ghayal, are big Monumental Hits at box office. In his peak, Sunny was even ahead of Khans, which is not in case of Akshay. That means, overall Sunny was a bigger star than Akshay as far as box office business is concerned.


Q. who has huge line up in next 2, 3 years between ajay & akshay according to boxffice? Saifal Abro (via comment).

A. Ajay Devgn is doing Taanaji which is a very big budgeted movie just announced few hours back. Plus, he is the lead character in Golmaal Again. Akshay Kumar is having 2.0 in his kitty, which is easily the biggest film of India. But, Rajinikanth is having the lead character role. However, Akshay is having some interesting film line ups in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Padman, Gold. Overall both are having strong line ups and time will tell who goes ahead in coming 2-3 years at box office. Right now Akshay is leading the race.
