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.

  • Krrish 3 will be an all time bak’was disaster n jthj will be the greatest ever movie n biggest worldwide bb

  • Man these lalllupop fans are irritating, always use others name and abuse, have no gutts to show up with their true identity.
    Lalllupop fans, I am gonna do POOON POOON on your face, so please gladly take it hahaha

    The only best actor in Bollywood is……… ME hahaha so f u c k off loosers.

  • Joginder Tuteja’s biggest joke. John Abraham’s Shoot Out at Wadala may enter 100 crore club.Sanjay Gupta’s last hit was Kaante years back. The other actors are Sonu Sood,Kangana Ranaut,Anil Kapoor & Manoj Bajpayee.ZEE ETC channel have already predicted 12 crore lifetime collections in India. I think that flop master John will make the film flop

  • there is only hrithik who have a combination of quality- perfect acting, amezing body, perfect dancer, dashing face. he is a allrounder actor for new generation. and far better than akshya , ajay. this is his bad luck to work in bollywood, he deserve for hollywood. imagine hrithik as a spiderman character…

  • Atul@
    . single day was highest forever with 25crs a record….
    Don 2 first day collections a record for non-holiday opening…
    And u are saying srk is the only actor who doesnt have starpower to pull crowds??..
    Grow up baby

  • Let whole Bollywood be against SRK,but you know what! SRK doesn’t give a single f@ck about it.

    And some people here saying Srk fans startuping war between Hrithik vs Ajay or Hrithik vs Akshay?

    Get a life loosers.You all want to downgrade Srk and his fans. Isn’t it?
    Get the h@ll out of here looses.

  • I agreed SRK is ahead in terms of fan following as far as box office opening this diwali with SOS Ajay but it will be effected to JTHJ very well and after 2-weeks Amir Khan Talaash will release JTHJ will not cross more then 100-crore or less for sure.

  • Aki@ok dude lets c…
    Opening weekend for JTHJ Will be no less than 90crs…
    12crs-first day
    14crs-second day
    22crs-third day(muharram).
    Total weekend-92crs..
    Ok for your sake i will reduce 20crs..
    .then it will be 72crs 6days..
    And first week lets c mmmmmm 90crs..
    And remaining lifetime if u add atleast 10crs also it will easily cross 100crs…
    This was the example that how it will cross 100crs..
    But my estimation is 165crs(if its positiveness will be like RNBDJ kind off WOM)
    145crs surely are in the favour off JTHJ…

  • dear guys,
    No doubt about hrithik boxoffice pull but plz its quite unfair to compare apple with orange. Hrithik & Aamir has made their image as a gr8 script sense perfectionist hence when they r out with their movies in 2-3 years of interval once accept that 2 start in a bang also we expect that 2 be critically approved. Among these 2 Aamir has definetely and comparitively a bigger crowd puller. Now coming to salman khan he is the only one with no question of script in it, what we look is entertainment, style, masala and larger than life persona1lity we say Salman Khan. Ajay Devgan & Akshay both come up 2 bet their stardom atleast thrice in a year, among these 2 while ajay is consider a better actor & more versatile 1 while akshay is more a flamboyant one he is a trademark personality in genres like comedy & action. Now any1 who doubt ajay cannot pull the crowd other than with Rohit shetty just wait till this deewali and we will witness the answer in the form of blockbuster SOS. Well in the past he had successful association with kuku kohli, harry baweja, anees bazmi, ram gopal verma raj kumar santoshi 2 name the few.

  • aj pata chala akki ke chamche hrithik se kyun jalte h…………u all just want ur akki to be compared with the likes of aamir,salman,srk etc…but keep one thing in mind hrithik is next to khans popularity and acting wise ..ur akshay comes after ajay etc….. he can’t do a movie like guzaarish..he can’t do a movie like jodha akbar

  • @akki hater abe c# # #ye,akki’s non holiday biggest hit rr(135 cr.) collects more than g.ythik’s holiday,extened weekend biggest hit agneepath(120 cr.).to phir kaun hua more popular????woh saal me 4 ya 5 movies karta hai jinme se 4 hit hui he aur sirf 1 flop.aur tera g.ythik sirf 1 karta hai aur woh bhi mega disasters(kites,guzarish).and also,g.ythik can’t do role like rowdy rathore or housefull 2 or khiladi series or janwar or sangharsh.

  • Hrithik comes at 4 aftr sallu and srk and amir…but we shld see all factors including popularity,versatility,dance,actin……… in this way ,hrithik is 100 tyms bttr than akshay,150 tyms bttr than ajay devgan….even ranvir desrvs 5 no…akshay n ajay have no varsatility….@hritik haters

  • HR is better dan all khans in terms of acting.. And don’t forget dat he is not from 90’s. He ruled boxoffice many times.
