A Munnabhai is a series because you took him, and placed him somewhere else. We wanted to take it (Chulbul Pandey) forward in the Rocky way (more…)
Salman Khan had mesmerized the audience with his innocent yet intellectual iconic character called Prem. Sooraj Barjatya gave him this image and now after years, the duo will be seen together.
In the year 2012, we have seen him playing macho roles full of action when asked if he will be seen in romantic roles again like he did in ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ etc, the actor promptly says, “Yes you will see me in Sooraj’s film.” (more…)
Friday, 14 December 2012 04:27 Salman Khan isn’t the sorts to mince matters. It’s always either black or white for him and may be that’s just why he doesn’t hesitate in speaking his heart out. As the second installment of his super successful blockbuster Dabangg comes close to its release, the notorious Khan of the film industry gets chatty about considering 100cr an achievable target, plans for the third part of Dabangg, choosing action films to stay fit and the possibility of being summoned by the court for his hit and run case on this birthday! Excerpts:
People are already touting this film to touch 300crs. Your thoughts.
People nowadays speak of 300crs as if it’s nothing. First let somebody comfortably touch 200, it’s not even easy to touch 100 crores for some. There is increase in the number of fan following, increase in theaters, increase in ticket prices so business has to happen.
One thing is for sure that in our life time itself it will be 300, 400 and 500 crores.But has touching at least a 100cr mark become a regular mundane process for you as all your films at least make that much? (more…)
There are Class Film, there are Mass Film and there are Salman Film. Ask any Exhibitor or Distributor about Salman Khanand they will say these words unanimously. He is a phenomenon and this phenomenon creates mass hysteria at the box officewhenever his film releases. The man is synonymous to box office records from Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Aapke Hain Kaun days.With court cases and mediocre projects after year 2005 his stock at the box office was in doldrums. Then happened Wanted in 2009 and rest is history. He who started the single screen craze which was near about shut down.

Q. Looking at business of Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Talaash, Khiladi 786, etc does it not make Ra.One look very good and at time it was trashed much more than these films?
A. In hindsight, the Ra.One 115 crore number looks good but this year the growth in business has been huge, just the films have not been good enough to show the growth. Dabangg 2 should change that though

Raja Natwarlal had poor collections on day one as it collected around 5 crore nett on day one. Mumbai circuit was a bit better as Gujarat and Saurashtra fared better and by far the best collections across India. It was a holiday in Maharashtra and Gujarat and that helped Mumbai circuit compared to rest of India but even with holiday Mumbai can not be called good. The rest of the country was poor with North and Central recording dull collections and also not showing that major jump in the evening shows which was needed.Read more...
Lyon (France): Internationally-renowned Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been roped in as an ambassador for Interpol’s “Turn Back Crime” campaign to promote awareness on how everyone can play a role in preventing crime.

Before I go into my views about Ek Villain, I’d like to state that I am a huge fan of “I Saw the Devil (ISTD)” (on which Ek Villain is based) and I consider it a cinematic masterpiece. When I heard that Mohit Suri is making an Indian version of ISTD I was contrastively (9 out of 10 times I hate Indianized version of classics) quite glad and upbeat about it. Reason: From the very first time I watched ISTD, I have always felt that it has a very universal story and despite all the violence its core element: “The story of ultimate pain and suffering and confronting it” is applicable to almost every variety of people. What went unforgivably wrong in Ek Villain isRead more...
