* Everyone is speculating whether DABANGG director Abhinav Kashyap has indeed signed Ranbir Kapoor for his next venture, which will be made in collaboration with Viacom18? Initially, it was reported that Shah Rukh Khan would essay the lead role in the film. The fact is, Abhinav did meet Ranbir, but there is no official confirmation yet. Meaning, the actor is yet to give his official nod to the project in question.

* The BIG news is the teaming of Aamir Khan and director Rajkumar Hirani, after the grand success of 3 IDIOTS. A lot of people are keen to know if Aamir and Hirani are indeed teaming up again. Well, the truth is, yes they are. Hirani himself confirmed to this writer that Aamir has consented to act in his next venture. The scripting of the film is now complete.

* The leading actress, who has delivered back to back hits, has decided to charge a fat fee henceforth. Also, she has been advised to be a partner in profits by people close to her. Well, she deserves the success… and the money too!

    Leading Lady is one with back to back hits? Vidya Balan? Katrina?

  2. Serenzy

    Katrina- no chance…Though she has improvd a Hell lot since her Boom days but she is in Dhoom3 already.
    So, aamir wont take her again .

    Vidya- if she is there than the sky will be the limit…No more words.
    Aamir-Hirani-Vidya.!!!!

    Is VVC producing it??
    Is the title PK??

  3. Serenzy

    I hope they either take Vidya or Anushka Sharma.
    I am rooting for both.

    ………..

    My ratings of Hirani’s previous works :-

    Munnabhai MBBS – 5/5

    Lage Raho Munnabhai – 4/5

    3 Idiots – 4/5

  4. Roy

    Yeah, i definitely don’t want to see Kareena/Kajol/Rani

    I don’t mind Katrina

    My first two choices would be Anushka and Vidya… Vidya for being the female Aamir Khan and Anushka cause she is pretty … though she looked anorexic in LVRB.

  5. Jasp the Wasp

    Unlike Kareena and Katrina, Kajol and Rani are actually actors. And they are very good actors too. Besides, they don’t look ugly as hell, they look decent. Ideal heroines, something like Madhuri.

    Vidya-Aamir-Hirani… whooo! That would be an absolute treat!

  6. Bournvita

    roy-Vidya for being the female Aamir Khan :p …. By the way who is aamir khan who gave 13 crs disaster in name of dhobi ghat :d

  7. Roy

    Bournvita, it’s not far away from another disaster 18 cr Ishqiya. And while Dhobi Ghat is complete art movie (in fact highest grossing Indian art movie), Ishqiya was out and out commercial with great songs :P

  8. Serenzy

    Dhobi Ghat is a well-made movie thrashed for no reason just bcz it failed at the BO.

  9. Roy

    Champ, DG didnt fail at the Box Office, it is the highest grossing art movie till date in history of Indian cinema

  10. Talaash

    @Roy – ” Champ, DG didnt fail at the Box Office, it is the highest grossing art movie till date in history of Indian cinema ”

  11. Talaash

    @Roy/Serenzy – Yiu guys are mixing two pieces of news here :P Taran had not mentioned anything bout d leading lady in Hirani’s next :P

  12. Serenzy

    @roy

    kya bak raha hain??
    Haha…Dat line of urs has to be Iconic…’highest grossing art movie’.
    :)

    btw, Ishqiya was a Success like Paa,NOKJ,TDP,Kahaani,LRMB,Paarineeta,Bhool Bhulaiyaa & unlike Dhobi Ghat(good movie though…Better dan dat Crap Peepli LIVE).

  13. Roy

    Serenzy, bak mein nahi tum rahe ho.

    Both DG and Ishiqya were declared below average and average respectively by BOI. Both grossed 14 cr and 21 cr, but I believe Ishqiya budget was higher to DG

    Also, it is the truth the DG is highest grossing art movie. It is the 3 Idiots of art movies from a commercial perspective. So Aamir has the highest commercial grosser in 3 Idiots and highest Art grosser in DG. Whether you like it or not.

  14. Jasp the Wasp

    Highest art grosser? How do you define an art film? I liked Dg a lot but making such spurious claims is stupidity.

  15. Roy

    “a social realism style; an emphasis on the authorial expressivity of the director; and a focus on the thoughts and dreams of characters, rather than presenting a clear, goal-driven story”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_film

    There are no claims made, only facts provided. It is the stupid people who are unable to understand it

  16. suprabh

    Are you guys not getting it…

    all are independent news pieces, they are NOT related.. !!! He isnt sayng that the point number 3 actress is the one for point number 2 film.!!!

  17. Serenzy

    Roy,

    Does SRK has d biggest romantic movie(DDLJ) to his credit in history of bwood den???(even i dont knw d exact facts but #justsaying)

    Dude, i respect u(& u know dat) but dis ‘highest grossing art movie’ claim is bullshit and laughable…Fuck,i cant blive u even have such a theory.

    Anyways,m not gonna blive dat one bit…
    In my books(IMO),

    -Dhobi Ghat is a good film thrashed by some aamir haters bcz of its BO failure.

    -Peepli LIVE was Complete Crap but big success(due to brand Aamir…Same wid Delhi Belly-awesome film though).

    -Ishqiya is a success in my books…Vidya has 5 straight successes frm Paa to Kahaani.

  18. Roy

    1. HAHK was a romantic movie… So unless you think otherwise, it would be fair so say DDLJ is second biggest romantic grosser of it’s era. Last decade however I think LAK, APKGK, RNBDJ outgrossed it.

    2. Why is it BS that DG is ‘Highest Grossing Art movie’? Name one art movie which has done more. And don’t be ridiculous and call offbeat movies art. And as per Doga’s reliable model, he had certified DG economic success. And also, some people have liked/loved movie. Infact, the famous Pak cricketer Imran Khan has mentioned DG his favorite movie in his interview.

    And DG made distributor share more than it’s budget purely from theatrical revenue. So how can you call it a BO failure?

    What about Don 2 then? Theatrically it didn’t even recover it’s cost. Costing 110 cr, it made DS of 57 cr India + 32 cr overseas = 89 cr. Short by a huge 21 cr. If DG is termed a failure, then so is Don 2 a massive flop. Ra.One will be considered a disaster by that yardstick.

    I cannot believe you of all people are behaving like a fanatic.

    1. Jasp the Wasp

      Sorry to point out in your ever-flawed analysis, Don 2′s distribution cost was 85 cr. Its publicity costs of 22 crore were recovered pre-release through brand tie-ups. Sorry, try harder to call don 2 a flop next time.

  19. Serenzy

    Fanatic!!!

    SRK isnt even in d picture here….
    All i claim is i have my doubts over what u r saying and accrding to my opinion/view it is wrong.

    Even sneha Lol’d at dat line of urs.

  20. assmasala

    Swades is the biggest art Hit film everr!!

    Swades isnt a film .. its cinema !!

    its like a DD docu ..

    and still made 18cr in 2004 ..

    in 2011 sky is da limit!!

  21. Roy

    Champ, whatever Sneha does, she is not the last authority on this.

    LOL.. Swades, art film? you missed a F in front. don’t mistake a boring pathetic film for art. Please learnthe definition of art first. I posted it above as well ..

  22. Delight44

    No interval,no song, not a single masala element,
    still 14 crore net[ 8 cr DS ]@8 crore budget [ revenue from overseas and other sources not included]
    Kis angle se flop hai ye?

    Movies like Ra.One [40 crore loss] ,Antenna Kabhi Kabhi[3 crore lifetime], Dulha Mil Gaya[1.5 crore lifetime] fulfill all criterias of Flop/Disaster.
    [disaster esp. mentioned for Ra.One as it is biggest lossmaker in history of Bollywood]

    Swades wasnt an ART movie, it was a pathetic boring movie .Producer/actor wrnt smart enough to manage the budget that resulted in heavy losses.

    1. rajeev singh

      ra one total net share including all revenues is minimum 160 cr, as it’s been done numerous times on NG by many peoples…….still you are claiming a 40 cr loss, so ra one budget was 200cr+ , hmmm……..so ra one was the first indian movie made with 200 cr+ investment, i am proud of srk, he really made a very very big movie…….

    2. rajeev singh

      REVENUES:
      1 Satellite & Music Rights Rs. 40 crore (Already final)
      2 India Video Rs. 02 crore (Expected)
      3 India Theatrical (Hindi version) Rs. 55 crore (1st week’s share)
      4 India Theatrical (Tamil & Telugu dubbed versions) Rs. 04 crore (1st week’s share)
      5 India Theatrical (2nd & further weeks) Rs. 06 crore (Expected)
      6 Overseas Theatrical (All versions) Rs. 16 crore (1st week’s share)
      7 Overseas Theatrical (2nd & further weeks) Rs. 10 crore (Minimum expected)
      8 Subsidy from UK government Rs. 28 crore (Letter recd. by Eros; cheque awaited)
      TOTAL REVENUES: Rs. 161 crore

      just taking revenue part by komal nahta , for reference …..

  23. Delight44

    SRK’s one and only art movie is GajaGamini that failed to collect even 50 lakhs at BoxOffice.[took 50 lakh as upper limit,even 5 lakh is doubtful]

  24. Serenzy

    IMHO, Swades was one f d most brilliant movies of SRK’s career and last decade.

    Agreed as a follow up to Lagaan it faltered but man, srk is a knockout as Mohan.

    Totally excellent acting…U need to seep in Swades slowly and aaram se…Many scenes will make u go Wow and stay wid u for a long time.(dat train scene is Iconic in all respects).

    Swades was brilliance but behind Lagaan.

    4.5/5 from my side.

    @delight(prashant right??)
    so u r back…Pity dat talaash is postponed.

    Yeah v all know ur views on srk vich r never gonna change…So please even dont bother commenting bcz it always sounds d same(like a recorded tape recorder).

    Had read u saying u like srk a lot and admire his success but hate his fans a lot…Dats y all d hate rants…
    Hmmmm… Atleast b open abt it like wall D and Danish.
    Have guts!!

  25. Serenzy

    @rajeev singh

    In my books, RA.One is a failure while Don2 is a HIT.
    ………

    Same goes for my BO views on Dhobi Ghat and Ishqiya(content wise both were good…Ishqiya a tad better).

    1. rajeev singh

      i am not talking about verdicts, it’s personal view after watching the BO performance…….you think ra one flop , it’s ok, BOI ND taran says it’s hit again ok, and komal says it’s profitable but not so much to term as hit, that’s ok too…..
      but i object if someone say loss of 40 cr, means from where and by which means this number is given by delight44 ….it’s totally senseless…….

      verdicts can vary but how can you vary numbers confirmed by more than one source….

  26. Alfa.one

    Pipli Live was nothing more than a DD drama, D. Belly was verbal porn. All those who say Swades was crap, should keep watching this verbal porn and DD Drama.

    If some one talk of highest grosser and commercial successful movies then craps like BG, Ready, RA1 also grossed in that year. If some one talk of failures then they should also talk about Mela, Mann, MP etc. etc……….!

  27. Serenzy

    @rajeev singh

    please dont waste ur time on matters considering ‘SRK’ wid Delight44.

    He is a snob in dat matter and Hate’s SRK fans/supporters to d core.

    I suspect a ‘sadist’ personality inside him somewhere…Poor Guy.
    :(

    Let’s feel Sorry for him my brother Rajeev.

  28. Talaash

    @Tango- D3 shoot starts from May n Hirani’s next from Sept …Hw is possible ??? So ll he be shooting 2 movies at a time ???

  29. KM

    Gr8 news.

    Now this will be fun

    D3 summer/diwali 2013

    PK Xmas 2013

    Go Aamir ;-)

    And yes I would love to see Vidya opposite Aamir

    1. rajeev singh

      diwali 2013 is booked for krishh 3, so no chance fr D3 on diwali…….otherwise a clash……which is impossible…..

      1. aman

        At present there aren’t that many screens to accommodate both Dhoom 3 and Krrish 3 on the same day without one of the producers being unhappy.

  30. KM

    Regards to dates….I think this is the more likely scenario

    D3 to finish shooting in Dec

    PK to start in Jan

  31. Jasp the Wasp

    Please, you guys are arguing with that bogus analyzer Delight44? You must be out of your mind. That guy will say Ra.One made 150 cr losses after two years. He is just an idiot. Ignore him.

  32. Tango

    Talaash.

    Hirani plans to start his Amir film this September, as of yesterday (28th). All the same I’ll talk to Hirani next week (hopefully) to get the exact situation.

    I think Amir can shoot for two films simultaneously, no rule against it.
