srk fans reactions …


mnik before release:- mnik will thrash 3 idiots and be the highest grosser ever…

mnik after release:- mnik was an awesome film…but its genre was different so it didn’t beat 3 idiots…next year srk coming in action genre with don2 & raone…they “will surely beat 3 idiots!!!!


before raone release:- raone will cross ready in first week itself and definitely beat bg & 3 idiots!!!!

after raone release:- people dont understand srk’s emotions and acting in raone…who cares!! anyways don2 will surely beat bodyguard!!

before don2 release:- don2 will surely rockk bolywood and cross bodyguard in 1st week 7 lifetime will be 250 crores!!!

after don2 release:- don2 was an awesome action movie…indian people don’t understand action….still next year srk will be in his main genre “romance”…3 idiots “will” be definitely thrashed by srk’s romantic film!!!

before jthj release:- jthj will be the best film…we think that it will be better than titanic( this was the biggest joke i had read!!) jthj lifetime will be 200+!!!

after jthj release:- jthj was affected due to sos & its genre was not good so it didnt beat ready!!!!

anyways srk next year coming with masala film it “will” definitely beat ready!!!!

moral of the story:- for srk fans the word “will” remains constant as they always like to remain in past or think of future… they hate present!!!!

so what are your excuses srk fans for srk film in 2013!!!?????

@indicine. It is an unfair comparison, its like comparing indian cricket team (dabaang 2) with the bangladeshi cricket team (jthj). An equal comparison is needed and the only competitor for SALMAN is sAlMaN himself, so ett vs dabaang 2 comparison will be more appropriate.

DABANGG 2 total shows=3500*6(average 6 shows for 1 screen)

run time : 180 min
with 2500 screens —if we count an average 4 shows for 1 screen bcoz runtime 180 min
total shows of JTHJ= 2500 multiplied by 4= 10000
Collections=19.5 cr.
runtime : 120 min
with 3500 screens—-if we count an average 6 shows for 1 screen bcoz runtime 120 min
total shows of DABANGG 2= 3500 multiplied by 6=21000
collections : 19.5 cr.

means with 11000 more screens , the earning of both the films are same

19.5 crores is the ACTUAL collection of Dabanng-2 Day 1.

It has not clearly crossed 20 crores. JTHJ has done very well despite Diwali day interruptions & SOS masala biggie competition.

EID is the single best day of film release. Followed by 15th August. ETT & Dabanng took full advantage of it as SOLO releases.

SRK needs to target EID 2013 with Chennai Express hoping its full on 2 hrs Masala movie.

Dabanng-2 is clearly struggled to get to 20 crores on Day 1 when everyone predicted 24-25 crores on Day 1 despite working day because of the Brand Chulbul Pandey.

@ Jeet

Sallu has taken full advantage of & exploited EID day as SOLO release. SRK has not.

EID is where the single best opening day figures are at. Public both masses & classes starved for major superstar release for last month. Dont matter how bakwaas the movie is (ETT), both will rush to catch it at EID day due to starvation.

Hence, the best BO collection for day 1 as SOLO. Both Dabanng 2010 & ETT 2012 has that. 3-IDIOTS would’ve gone on to collect 270+ crores if released on EID instead of CHRISTMAS.

SRK must target EID 2013 for CHENNAI EXPRESS. hopefully SOLO.

i think the biggest mistake is made by i n d i c i n e itself…
if u r publishing a comparison then first explain each terms briefly…

now… how a movie with a run time of 180 mins is compared with a movie of 120 mins..
second thing…the no. of screens are also different..
indeed it’s an unfair comparison..
