Can Hrithik Roshan be No 1 after Krrish 3? Joginder answers!

Film critic and trade analyst Joginder Tuteja answers a few questions from Indicine readers. “Will Madhuri Dixit make a successful comeback with Dedh Ishqiya”, “Will Emraan Hashmi’s Ghanchakkar cross 100 crores?”, “Who is the most consistent Khan in the last 20 years” and more, will be answered tomorrow. Stay tuned.

1. Going by the trailer of ‘Khiladi 786’, it looks if it is in the same genre as ‘Dabbang’. So will ‘Dabbang 2’ have any impact on ‘Khiladi 786’? – Vaibhav Deshpande

  • Yes, arrival of ‘Dabangg 2’ would have an impact on ‘Khiladi 786’; after all an open week ahead is beneficial for every film. However the impact would be more due to two biggies arriving in back to back films than because of the genre. Moreover, ‘Khiladi 786’ would have earned a major chunk of it’s moolah in the first week itself.

2. Kapoor is now far away from his contemporaries like Emraan Hashmi, Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan? What do you expect from his upcoming films like ‘Namak’ and ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’? – Devendra

  • Yes, he is indeed far away from the names you mention. After ‘Kaminey’, he was in a very strong position but his subsequent films have failed him. However, let’s not forget that he is talented enough to bounce back. ‘Namak’ (Prabhudheva) as well as ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’ (Rajkumar Santoshi) are good on paper at the least. Competition for Shahid has intensified though since other than Ranbir, Emraan and Imran, there are also Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and now Varun Dhawan to contend. Just to stay on in Top-10 would be a challenge.

3. Just on the basis of box office, who is a bigger star? Ranbir Kapoor or Emraan Hashmi? – Arjun Singh

  • Ranbir Kapoor. To pull audience for a film like ‘Barfi!’ is no mean feat and with the films super success, he has managed further rise in popularity and stardom.

4. According to you, what is Hrithik Roshan’s position after ‘Agneepath’ and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ in the industry? Can ‘Krrish 3’ take him to the Number One position – Harsh Soni

  • After these two films, Hrithik has further strengthened his position amongst Top-6 with him and Ajay Devgn battling it out for the fifth slot. The maximum distance that he can cover after ‘Krrish 3’ is to find a place in Top-3. However he needs to be releasing two films a year and see a good success rate before being seriously considered for the Number One position. (Indicine: In 2006, tops stars like Shahrukh Khan (Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Don) and Aamir Khan (Rang De Basanti, Fanna) had two releases each, but it was Hrithik’s year with 2 major blockbusters (Krrish, Dhoom 2). He couldn’t sustain the top spot because, his next release (Jodha Akbar) was a good year and a half later. In between, SRK had two blockbusters (Chak De India, Om Shanti Om) and regained the top spot.)

5. What are your expectations from ‘Race2’? Can Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone expect to enter the 100 crore club with the film – Janak

  • ‘Race 2’ is red hot amongst the audience, industry and trade. Moreover, amongst all the sequels/franchises being made today, this and ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2’ are the most awaited ones since they are taking the actual story forward. Moreover they have a huge recall value and people want to know what happened to the characters. It is a given that the film would give Saif as well as Deepika a 100 crore success and that too by a huge margin.

  • “u cn abuse anyone u wants”
    #typicalbhaifansmentality no doubt now :D, @lil Wayne confess bhi kar diya?
    Nai bhai me to salman ko abuse karunga, ab ye tumhari marzi, u want to annoy, annoy
    Or ye bhi promise tum me se kisi ko bhi abuse nai karunga! :D

  • @atul abe teri aaj kitno ne mari …hahahaha..sala abhi bhi bhiik mang raha hai, are yaar koi iski maro re..hahah

  • bapuji meri maro yaar i want s ex tonight , bcoz srk is out of town and karan also busy with siddharth malhotra

  • itz unfair to compare emraan and Ranbir…first emraan makes movies having A. cert…2ndly Ranbir is making movies with well known,talented film directors ,producers and actressez…so compare them after ek thi daayan, ghanchakar,unglee..

  • @srk,sallu k g@@nd me koyla
    hey Velocity why did u change ur name ha?????
    are you scared of sallu nd srk fans…thts y u using their name???

  • @rohit, completely agree wid u, u all idiots , learn sumthin frm rohit, hw politely he is commenting , bt u all srk n sallu fans only knw hw to abuse each oder n do non sense

  • BO game change all over the year people put Aamir as the number one because of 3Idiots record that is still on till now even without any release Aamir still at the top and krrish can change everything if the film break 200cr record .Hrithik is the only actor who break salman opening record with agneepath and thats proove that hrithik can beat anyone with the right film that people want to sees o if krrish break opening and final record no salman no shahrukh no aamir all people will say Hrithik hrithik hrithik so its depend on how big krrish 3 will be .

  • @velocity
    shut the fu #ck nd listen u madarc#d zopadpatti category ..3rd class person….go nd watch POGO…hahahahahahahahah

  • Ranbir is bigger star than Emraan Hashmi in terms of box office. Emraan Hashmi debuted with footpath. Since his debut to 2008,only murder was clean hit.From 2008 he gave hits such as Jannat,OUATIM,TDP,J2,M2 etc.For Ranbir only Saawariya & Rocket Singh flopped. Anjaana Anjaani was below avg. Then APGK,Wake Up Sid,Raajneeti,Rockstar & Barfi are hits & Bachna Ae Haseeno below avg. In 2009 APGK was the second highest grosser after 3 Idiots.

  • Reason for SRK – Salman fight. Salman asked SRK for a special appearance in MAMK in return for his cameo in KKHH & OSO.SRK rejected it. In Katrina’s birthday party Salman teased SRK by saying ‘hey ur reality show Paanchvi Class is flop.SRK replied ‘what about Aishwarya? Then Salman became angry & said ‘I will beat you’.Then Gauri came & SRK and Gauri left the party. Salman was drunk & was in form & SRK was also drunk.
