  • no matter what people say but agneepath with four big actors in the movie couldnt beat salman’s ready and that pretty much proves the starpower and onscreen crisma of salman. salman is box office king whether anybody likes it or not

  • “Salman Khan is a sweetheart. He is the lifeline of the industry.” says Kareena Kapoor


  • Aishwarya is not fit for a movie now
    Mohit Suri is a good choice for Ekta
    EMAET is not a hit its a above average
    Asin should have been in Chennai Express
    Tere naal love ho gaya will be better word of mouth and will open well
    Akshay & Ajay should stop making remakes.
