As told to Aakansha Naval-Shetye (DNA; January 1, 2013)
Words fail me at this point. I am appalled and angered that in a country that worships goddesses, women are brutally stripped off their basic right to live a dignified life. Forget being treated as an equal, the inhuman behaviour that they are subjected to is not even meted out to animals.

On reading the media reports that Akshay Kumar’s character sketch in Special Chabbis will borrow elements from India’s notorious conman Mithliesh Kumar Srivastava better known as Natwarlal, his family has approached the makers asking to see the film.
Natwarlal was a famous Indian con man known for repeatedly ‘selling’ the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort and the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Till the end, no one was able to catch him and when caught he would escape. He remained a mystery till his death. Sources reveal, “Natwarlal’s family is keen to see how much of his life has been borrowed and in what light he has been shown.

A. When the first film is a huge one then 10-15% growth is good enough. Dabangg 2 may show a10% growth for Dabangg and thats a big number
Q. Talaash is a niche film so is not 90 crore excellent business for the films?
A. Niche films don’t release on 2600 screens. Talaash is not a niche film although thr genre is not hugely popular but that goes for other genres as well.
Rs.200 crore net theatrical collection is the breakeven point for the sub-distributors and exhibitors who have paid nearly Rs.100 crores as minimum guarantee (MG) for the domestic rights of Salman starrer DABANGG 2. They have every reason to worry now. …
