Ratan and Girish Jain were the first producers who backed Akshay Kumar as the Khiladi and made several films with him. The Jains now want to revive their Khiladi series.
A source says, “They have been working on the script of their Khiladi film for a while now. They have already registered some titles for it.”
The source adds, “A meeting with Akshay has been planned. Time will tell if he will be part of the film or not.”
Incidentally, Akki’s upcoming film has Khiladi in its title.
The war had begun months before their scheduled release date. And for Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardaar, it seems to be continuing even after the big Diwali release. According to reports, months prior to their yet untitled film’s release, Yash Raj Films had made a pact with single screen owners – they will get to showcase the single Eid release Ek Tha Tiger only if they promise to release Yash Chopra’s directorial on similar terms. Unwilling to lose out on the Salman Khan starrer Ek Tha Tiger, many had agreed then. Their stance seems to have changed now.
Mirror has found out that over 350 single screens across India have decided to replace JTHJ with SOS. These include Chitra in Dadar, Premiere in Dongri, Dreamland and Central Plaza in Mumbai and also Apsara Big in Ahmedabad.
Confirming the news, Devgn’s business manager Kumar Mangat said, “This is good for the film. Theatres that couldn’t screen SOS before will now be able to do so. I am told around 300 to 370 screens will be allotted to the film.”
Reportedly, SOS has collected approximately Rs 76 crore net all over India despite having 500 screens lesser than JTHJ, which collected approximately Rs 90 crore.
When contacted, Aditya Choksi, a leading distributor and exhibitor from Central India said, “Just like in other parts of India, in my circuit, SOS was screened in few theatres like Neel Kamal and Kusum (Indore) and Ganesh ( Pune). It was a success.”
Trade expert Amod Mehra said, “JTHJ has failed miserably in single screens. Hence, theatres are ready to accommodate SOS now.”
Owner of Maratha Mandir, Manoj Desai, who started with three shows of JTHJ on November 13 confirmed that now they have reduced the number of shows to two.
When contacted, YRF spokesperson said, “It is normal trade practise to drop screen/show count in a week or two. And we have done just that after a successful run during which the film would have collected approximately 100 crores at the domestic box office and 50 crores overseas, at the end of the extended first week. Also, a lot of the theatres have been booked only for a one week run.”Jab Tak Hai Jaan shows in single theatres have now been given to Son Of Sardar in over 350 screens across India (more…)

When you go for a movie, you go with the hope to get entertained, thoroughly enjoy, come out with smiling faces and Happy New Year exactly does that. It’s thoroughly entertaining, witty and totally paisa vasool movie and you will come out with smiling faces. We all know what is the story of the movie, we all know there is no secret in the movie, we also know that this is mindless entertainment and we also know that it is somewhat inspired from couple of Hollywood movies but in spite of these “we know things”, I must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed the movie with my family. We all know how good the movie “Chak De India” is and how brilliantly Srk performed but oneRead more...
Haider Direction: Vishal Bhardwaj Actors: Shahid Kapoor, Tabu, Kay Kay Menon, Irrfan Khan, Shraddha Kapoor Rating: ***1/2 There is much in Haider that deserves a standing ovation. Let’s start with the courage of director Vishal Bhardwaj. Hamlet is one of Shakespeare’s most difficult and ambiguous texts. It’s also his longest— it takes over four hours to deliver. Hamlet in itself is a beast to be tamed. Vishal and his co-writer, the acclaimed Kashmiri journalist Basharat Peer, transplant the play to Kashmir. It plays out against a socio-political tragedy that has been wrought over six decades and that has a Rashomon-like quality to it — the heroes and villains switch places, depending on the narrator. The result is a film that is problematic and far tooRead more...
