  • 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.

  • Bang bang is on 2nd october! Hny on 23rd! !
    Two superstars’ movies in one month. .hope both will be great.

  • 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

  • This Diwali oh my ‘God’ Records are to be broken by a huge margin bcz Happy New Year arrives on 23 rd oct.2014.King khan Rocks.

  • cheap promotion strategy started already.. i mean how insecure this man can b.. promoting it 11months before.. he knows without promotions his movies will flop.. he is not salman who needs no promotions because he has superstardom which srk does not

  • Oh not again! Please spare us this time. It will be another headache like Crappy Express!! Overacting Ki Dukaan Haakla Khan!!! Besharam of 2014…..

  • This year
    Krish3 made 200+ 3rd movie in the series
    Dhoom3 made 200+ 3rd movie in the series
    Chennai Express made 200+ not even a sequel. ?(?)?

  • OH MY GOD ! I can’t wait any more.I have tweet.others also do it.he is for fans.we are with him.our SRK is great.GOD bless SRK.HAIL THE THE LEGEND GLOBAL SUPERSTAR KING KHAN/BADSHAH SRK.THE KING OF BILLIONS OF HEARTS.

  • SRK and Farah Khan united again after a Hit Main Hoon Naa and Blockbuster OSO, lets see what this Jodi will have in astore, good luck.

  • Great opportunity for all srk fans. Its tough to wait till 23rd october. I hope the first poster will be great too.

  • Copied from Jai Ho strategy. Salman copies or remakes south indian movies and srk copies him in real life !!!!!!

  • @Indicine deepika’s facebook page got 10 million likes, pleas post an article about this, when salman khan’s facebook page got 9 million likes u published.

  • Happy new year to all:
    -the last year gives us 4 Important lessons from Bollywood:-
    1. Don’t Underestimate the Talent,abilities and BO performance of Little Master Aamir and his movies :Dhoom3
    2. Don’t Underestimate the power of Common Man Srk: Chennai Express
    3. Don’t Underestimate the power of India Superhero aka Hrithik Roshan as Krissh : Krissh3
    4. Don’t underestimate the Fan Following of Salman Khan: despite having no release in 2013 this man was top searched and talked about man Of blooywood in that year

    the best is Arvind Kejriwal surprised all and dethroned Bigger Political Parties like Congress and BJP and he was combination of all 4, using broom for flying like Harry potter so a superman like Hr, A common man like srk in ce, in height he is bit Similar to Aamir and with huge votes given to ‘AAP” suggest his followings like Salman.

    special congrats to team Madras Cafe & john who having dare to produce different movies like Madras Cafe & vicky Donor.
    movies i liked in year, d3,k3,Aashiqui2,Raanjhana,ce,Madras Cafe,jolly llb,fukrey,chashme baddor,sahab biwi gangster returns and haven’t seen Lunchbox yet but i know it should be great.

  • personally i think 2007 was best year as per great films and entertaining films because we get:
    One of the best love stories in India Cinema :Jab We Met
    Aamir first direction venture & outstanding movie: Taare Zameen Par
    Abhishek Bachchan Best Film Ever: Guru
    Akshay Best films and verity in Namaste London,Bhool Bhullaiya,hey Babby,welcome (except welcome i liked remaining 3 of his films)
    Salman as his best entertaining movie along with Govinda: Partner
    Srk best performance i admire Chak De India and good Romantic movie OSO
    Superb Comedy movies like Dhamaal,Dhol.
    only exception was that HR not had any movie that year.

    so for me that year was best year with have perfect combination of social,patriotical,biopic movies with Entertaining & romantic movies.and each of the actor got one of their best ever in that year, hope 2014 repeat, because we have Aamir+Sanju+Raju combination in P.k., Salman’s in Jai Ho & Kick,Srk’s HNY,Hr’s Bang bang, Ajay’s Singham2, Akshay’s Holiday & Gabbar, so we have good looking ventures ahead in 2014.

  • Aamir fans are celebrating his careers 10th Hit meanwhile King Khan fans get ready for 11th HIT in a row. Boom Boom Boom

  • I wonder if it can beat Ready’s lifetime.
    But since it is releasing on Diwali with increased ticket prices it can touch 150 crore due to Deepika’s stardom.
    But beyond that is impossible due to SRK’s low starpower.

  • @dev but surprisingly Aamir has 4atbb in his career while Srk has 2 in which one he is star along with Salman. Nevertheless enjoy srk 11th hit continuously excluding flop Billu and including flop turned Hit Raone a 135cr movie earned 115cr and called a hit,big joke ever.
