  • Aamir Khan visits ‘crime writing hub’ Meerut

    Jyothi Prabhakar (BOMBAY TIMES; November 28, 2012)   On Monday afternoon, as he headed out of Delhi aiport, on arrival from Jaipur and made his way to Meerut, Aamir Khan explained why he was heading there. “What I have learnt about Meerut, fascinated me.

  • Talaash Has Solid Advance At Multiplexes

    Talaash had a solid advance at multiplexes which opened advance sales over the weekend especially for a film which has has not had huge hype and heavy promotion.

  • Diwali Gives Par Results-BOI

    There were huge expectations this Diwali with two big films coming and business set to go a notch higher but it was not be as both films were not quite up to the huge expectations of the public and also dented each others business.
