  • Haters Haters Haters still you alive. I thought you must be died by seeing Ek Tha Tiger’s records which still breaking one by one.

  • Haters Haters Haters still you are alive. I thought you must be died by seeing Ek Tha Tiger’s records which still breaking one by one.

  • Watched second time last night. Fantabulous! Actions are superb, great romance and chemistry (and physics as well hahaha), breath taking locations and good comedy. Though the story was not extraordinary, it was beautifully scripted. Go and watch it.

  • Year 2009, take your biggest superstar Salman Khan’s Main Aur Mrs.Khanna. Budget- 40 crore, total lifetime box office collection- 10 crore. At the same time new comer Ranbir Kapoor’s Bachna Ae Haseeno made at a budget of 18 crores grossed more than 31 crores

  • Then it is needless to say that in the period 2008/ 2009 the films Jannat, Wake Up Sid,Luck,Dostana,Newyork,Race, Love Aaj Kal,All the Best, Golmaal Returns,Jab We Met & Kaminey grossed more than your superstar Salman’s disasters Main Aur Mrs.Khanna & Yuvraaj.

  • At that time you Salman Khan fans could have felt jealousy against actors like Emraan Hashmi, John Abraham,Ranbir Kapoor,Shahid Kapoor,Imran Khan,Saif Ali Khan & Ajay Devgn.

  • Then to someone who told that, Amitabh Bachan had 12 flops compared to Salman Khan. When Amitabh Bachan came industry, actors like Rajesh Khanna were ruling, & he started with flops.But when he became superstar, he swept other actors . Amitabh Bachan was the first actor to get one crore remuneration in Bollywood. At that time producers were not willing to give even 25 lakhs to other actors. Amitabh Bachan have three national awards for best actor. What Salman has?

  • Even after 60 years,Amitabh Bachan was able to make hits such as Sarkar & Paa due to his acting abilities. After 60 years, will Salman be able to give hits of his own? Then Amitabh Bachan’s KBC have more TRP than any other actor’s reality show in Bollywood.

  • It is good that we have superhits, otherwise the industry will suffer. No matter whose movie is a hit, it is good for industry as it needs superhits at least once a year to sustain and isntill belief in financers. When there is money in market, even small budget movie makers can confidently go ahead with their projects.

  • Salman was giving flops when” Kala Kawa” was his friend.. He was not eying the top spot,and was not competing.. Now, after they r unfriend kala kawa is not able to even eat salman’s dust..!

  • To Salman Khan fans comparing him with Amitabh Bachan. In 1977 Amitji’s Don released. Budget- 85 lakhs. Lifetime box office collection – 7.5 collection. In 2009 Sallu bhai’s film Main Aur Mrs.Khanna collected Rs.10 crores lifetime. That means after 32 years with greater number of screens & increase in ticket prices Salman Khan managed only 2.5 crores more. That is gap between Big B & Salman Khan. That is the star power of Big B & the reason why Amitabh Bachan is called Shahenshah & actors like SRK,Aamir & Hrithik are not given the name Shahenshah,though they are exceptionally good.


  • @emperor khan, you were saying ETT will gross 275 crores/ 300 crores etc.. Leave alone those figures, if ETT grosses 225 crore lifetime net in India, I will become fan of your Salman Khan & stop commenting against him. But one condition,if ETT grosses less than 225 crores, everytime when you come to comment on Indicine page, you change your name from’ Emperor’ Khan to ‘Donkey Khan’. Do you agree? Iam waiting for your reply.

  • Why are so afraid? Joker is arriving with no buzz & Ranbir’s Barfi does not have any hype like last year’s Rockstar & no other big films releasing.If Vicky Donor can run 6 weeks in multiplexes, why can’t your record breaking film cannot run?

  • @riyas: wen SALMAN was givin ATBB like dabangg AKSHAY was doing TEES MAAR KHAN,
    wen Salman was working on READY Hrithik deliverd Kites

    here i dnt want to dis respect any actor i jst wntd to say, evry actor has good or bad phase so stop recitin d figures of MAIN OR MRS KHANNA

  • @Riyas why r talking abt past time. everyone has bad now there no comparision between other actors.sallu is much ahead frm others.

  • @riyas: dude u r tlkin abt 225CRS I TELL U IF SRK’S NEXT TOUCHES EVEN 200CRS I’LL STOP COMING HERE, & if doesnt den u must change ur name to ‘i am a boasting stupid fan of Srk’
