Abhishek Bachchan: Guys, I’ll send you a personalised #HNYPoster autographed. Just tweet me @juniourbachchan with @HNY #HNYPoster



  • Now, Happy New Year has got perhaps the best or 2nd best release time after Bang Bang. Thursday is Diwali day and after that whole weekend is full of holidays (except Saturday which will be holiday in many parts of country) and whopping 7 holidays in first two weeks! Bang Bang has 4 holidays in its first 5 days! The interesting thing is, HNY is coming just 3 weeks after Bang Bang.

    Republic day is unfortunately for ‘Jai Ho’ is falling on Sunday. So, it will be a non holiday release.

    August 15th and October 31st/Nov 2nd are also very profitable release dates.

  • Diwali 2014 will be similar to Diwali 2011 + 2012 now- Shockingly stupid, over depressing and highly irritating…..

    HNY will be Tees Maar Khan part 2- shirish kunders revenge on Thakur…! ;-)
    Good luck Joker Shirish and congrats to Fatty Farah for bringing Bollywoods two Raavan lovers back together onscreen- finally we will see who’s Raavan/ ‘Ra Ra point One’ interpretaion/ impersonation was better… Im so happy for all lungiwalas as the debate will finally be settled once and for all…

  • Khans always release their movies on eid,diwali,christmas and other big holidays.Khans fans should not think khans are bigger.They should release their movies during ipl like and obtain even an average status.I have no doubt that if rowdy rathore was released during eid,it would have beaten 3idiots.
    Any star who does 1movie per year and release it on festive season is 90% guaranteed of success
