The last three Shahrukh Khan starrers have all been holiday releases and have all done well but have not fetched the numbers expected for holiday releases. The territory comparisons of Ra.One, Don 2 and Jab Tak Hai Jaan are as follows. The Jab Tak Hai Jaan numbers are expected numbers.
Ra.One – 39,95,00,000
In a span of one month, moviegoers were presented with four bigshot films, starring A-listers and backed by premiere production and distribution houses of the country. Sadly, none of them have able to garner fair amount of appreciation that is normally expected from a big film. Hence, it’s no wonder that the box office collections too aren’t very encouraging.
It all started with the great clash of Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardaar on Diwali Day (Nov 13). Both the film did attract sizeable number of audiences to theatres. But thanks to mixed feedback for both the films, these films fell after the 6-day festive period was over. Too much is made of the 100 crore club but it’s a good barometer for judging film’s success. And Jab Tak Hai Jaan took close to 20 days to reach there, even though it had competition from Son Of Sardaar, which indicates that something somewhere has gone wrong. Both the films fortunately were correctly priced and hence were profitable ventures.
Aamir Khan’s first film in 3 years after 3 Idiots, Talaash, was never in the league of other biggies. It wasn’t a typically massy film – it was a suspense drama and an emotional tale at its core. Moreover, it released on a regular working Friday, unlike other biggies of the year that had the advantage of holidays and extended weekends. Although collections have been to an extent satisfactory, the public response has been mixed. A section of audience has thrashed the film completely while few said that they expected more in terms of the suspense element.
After reprising his role as Chulbul Pandey in two successive films, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is all set to become Dabangg, this time in real life. Word is in from sources in the real estate business that the actor has purchased a plot sprawling over nearly 14,000 square feet in Linking Road, Santacruz, which has an estimated value of Rs 120 crore.
Parthesh Developers inked the deal some time last month, and the plot will be registered as his property very soon. The superstar is likely to construct an office on the plot. The builder was initially tightlipped about the sale, only letting on that he had been in talks with the actor. “I am planning to sell the plot, but talks are on with many people and no money has been exchanged yet,” insisted Nirav Shah. However, real estate sources operating in Bandra and Santacruz confirmed that the builder has sold the plot to Salman Khan, who has already made some part of the payment.

First there is the Midas touch. And then there is Salman Khan’s touch! Trust Sallu to add his own bit to the telly show Deeya Aur Baati Hum, where he was scheduled to feature. To incorporate Sonakshi Sinha’s unplanned presence on the sets of the programme, he rewrote the script himself.
Keeping his DTH dream intact, the actor seeks support from single screens

Tere Naam – One of the most iconic movies in Salman Khan’s 24 year career. Directed by Satish Kaushik.
Radhe – Salman was highly praised for his portrayal of Radhe Mohan and is widely considered to be his finest performances, till date.
Now they are reviving this character again, and I hope they have a strong emotional story backing this new movie.
Tere Naam is very close to my heart and many other Salman fans. Its a great idea to have a revival of sorts for this character but should be handled with utter care. I am sure Salman knows this.
If done well this movie can work wonders at BO.
Hairstyle – Salman’s hairstyle had become a rage in small towns and mass centres. Even I had tried to do that hairstyle for some time..
Music of Tere Naam was one of the pillars of that movie. Himesh Reshmiya had done wonders in this music.
All songs ..
01) Tere Naam,
02) Odhni oodh ke,
03) O Jana… keh raha hai dil ,
04) Kyu Kisi Ko,
05) Tumse milna,
06) Mann Basiya ,
07) Tune Saath jo mera choda ..
08) Chand – Tauba yeh saadgi …
09) Lagan Lagi …. all were huge hits and stay as all time fav’s for me.
Dabangg2′s opening will be like of never heard before. That 31cr figure looks untouchable though, but a 55cr weekend in on cards. Be it single screens or multiplexes, opening weekend will be unimaginable! The 5 screener multiplexes can accommodate as …
