Salman, Hrithik and others plan 2014 in advance

While there continues to be to-and-fro around the release timelines for Salman Khan’s ‘Mental’, there are several other biggies that have their calendars being sorted out way in advance. This can be seen in a clamour that is already building in right now for films that would arrive on as late as Diwali 2014. While this is pretty much a Hollywood phenomenon where release dates of films are blocked way in advance, sometimes as good as 2-3 years, the trend is pretty muck picking up for Bollywood as well.

Here is presenting the list of some of the most prominent films that are already working backwards from their release dates. What is notable is the fact that majority of these dates fall in or around some of the most coveted holidays that the entire country enjoys.

Kick (Eid)

What ‘Mental’ couldn’t accomplish this year, now ‘Kick’ is all set to do that next year. Even though the film is yet to go on floors, it is certain that Salman Khan would take back his Eid slot with this action entertainer. With more than a year to go before the film unfolds on the big screen, producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who is also turning director with the film, is putting all stops for his team to put together a perfect pre-production plan for ‘Kick’. For Salman too the film would come with mighty expectations since after his Eid release ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, it would be action time again with ‘Kick’ on Eid next year.

Shuddhi (Diwali)

This is the farthest that a Bollywood film is thinking for next year. Karan Johar, Hrithik Roshan and Karan Malhotra announced their release plans for ‘Shuddhi’ much in advance and no one really complained because there are expectations of an out and out entertainer here. With festivities all around on Diwali, the winning team of ‘Agneepath’ has shown it’s command by taking an early pick way in advance, hence also bringing in a new regular on Diwali. While over the years the battle was between Shahrukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn for Diwali, first ‘Krrish 3’ and now ‘Shuddhi’ brings Hrithik in the ring as well.

Bang Bang (Labour Day)

6 crores in collections for ‘Aashiqui 2’ on the Labour Day, and that too when the film was into it’s sixth day, has shown once again that how much can a holiday actually benefit. No wonder, Hrithik and team thought about this way in advance and didn’t blink an eyelid before finalising ‘Bang Bang’ for 1st May release next year. A Thursday release is only going to further benefit the film immensely as it would now be sitting on a four day long weekend. For Hrithik Roshan, this is a huge double bill and consolidation of his superstar status as this would be his third straight holiday release after ‘Krrish 3’

Gunday, Heropanti (Valentines Day)

On the day of love, there are two action-romantic-musicals that have their eyes set on the slot. Both films come have strong production houses backing them. While ‘Gunday’ has Yash Raj Films backing it, ‘Heropanti’ has Nadiadwala Grandson at the helm of affairs. Shooting of both films is currently on in full pace. ‘Gunday’ is a star studded affair with Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor coming together. On the other hand curiosity around seeing Tiger Shroff’s debut would drive ‘Heropanti’. More than a clash, it would be interesting to see both films co-exist and bring some ‘masala’ flavour next Valentines.

Hasee Toh Phasee (Republic Day)

First major holiday of 2014, Republic Day, would be seeing ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ play on screens. The second outing of Sidharth Malhotra almost a year and a half after ‘Student of the Year’, the film is being noticed for the hunky boy’s pairing with firebrand Parineeti Chopra. While one waits to see how does the coming together of Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap for this film would end up as an enticing creative experience, an early booking of the slot means the reverse count is already on. Ironically, despite being a Republic Day release, the film won’t gain anything special since 26th January happens to be a Sunday!

  • watch south indians if the film is good they watch otherwise didn’t.last coulpe film salman and shahruk no story ,no acting specially salman.what he doing in film nothing big zero thats why south indians not like salman.plz learn acting.people will relaize very soon…sharuk is good actor but his choosing film very bad.amir khan best to choose film

  • @sumeet in which dream u r living?
    srk is not coward who told you, srk still not declare CE release date till now and if salman said he will release his movie in this EID he will never dare to compete with him as he know that without compete him he get 100 cr collection but if he compete with him than will not even able to collect 75 cr. he himself waited to announce from salman whether he releasing movie this time on eid or not.
    a coward who not able to digest negative comments about him on twitter and decided to quit. hahaha a star who clams to have 3 billion fas only having 40 lac fans on twitter and these fans still not capable him to stay on twitter what rubbish, srk is one who not able to accept negativity such a coward person.

    @xzone dont worry dude srk collect 106 cr Don 2 & 116 cr Ra one when he got solo release and both in festive occasion and for JTHJ its not srk alone who contributed to 100 cr with clash its due to late yash chopra last venture and his sudden death which also added hype to movie and bring the audience into theatre and what we saw in the movie sorry “pathetic movie” a boring plot which we seen since srk career starts same romantic saga again and again and every body know how YRF get wide screen with the help of Salman “ETT”. even sos manged to collect 100 cr with poor single screen with have but because of i trusted BOi so it sos collect 88 cr in India but even its is more respectable collection than a movie which having legends like A R Rehman,Guljar,Legent Yash Ji=his sudden death,SRK,Talented Anushka & not talanted Katrina=srk lucky period Diwali but all we get a pathetic JTHJ morons.

  • taran adarsh ?@taran_adarsh 2h
    Update: Ratan Jain of Venus Records and director Dharmesh Darshan join hands again. Will make sequel to #Dhadkan. Cast under finalization.

  • in present time even a kid can predicted who is the most awaited movie mentioned above its definitely Kick, you can’t predict it will be highest grosser of that year or not but for opening and first week collection it will definitely on top with by far high collection than other, after that content will decide if other movies having content strong than in lifetime collection it can beat but not in starting and everybody know when Salman comes into Action it will be biggest grosser you have Dabangg ETT for examples.
    only one movie can give tough competition to Salman’s if its got a festive or any national holiday release date and that is P.K.

  • #Aks
    Salman is nothing without south remakes…so he is more coward than other actors..
    Lets salman do amovie without south remakes or action
    then we will see who is the king
    Srk is giving 100 cr. In different genre..;
    Let salman do a romantic movie..
    It will be a utter flop..
    So stop barking….
    JTHJ collected 122 cr. India and 89 cr. In overseas even in clash and worldwide gross is 255 cr.

  • @aks…r u kidding me??? if yash ji’s death wud ve created a hype , then collections could have crossed 150cr…’s only srk, who turned such a loose script into a superhit in india nd blockbuster in overseas…..though…it’s not strange for me..that for each srk release , u all have a no. of factors responsible for the collections…other than srk…but in the case of ur “remake” khan movies…u all have only one reason for collections…so stop this double standard nd wait for ce…u ll get the answer…

  • @xzone: every time you losers talking big-bang before releasing srk movies first DON-2 it will break all records then same with JTHJ and result all knows struggling to get hit status at box office.

  • srk fans are jealous from 2 of the biggest rockstars (Salman n Hrithik) of bollywood. Now srk will try to book it for 2015.
    The below casual (Though Mental is not ready to release for this Eid) statement from Salman is enoug to scare srk.


    Game over srk !!!!

  • @xzone : biggest joke, CE will be better than Salman’s movies in collections. Lol !! hahaha … ROFL …. :D

  • @xzone: the biggest hit is Dabanng and ETT in indian cinema which is not remake are you educated or not?

  • @aki…hello…don’t go iton past…talk abt today u moron…otherwise ..if one ll check the past of sallu-man..then u all know…what ll be the result….

    @hritik…i have never seen a misbegotten like u before…..Mr. “loggerhead” …can u tell me…which srk fan is jealous frm hritik….listen u moron…hritik is one of my fav actor alongwith srk…so stop spreading negativity abt him…he is a rockstar , not a “crapstar”….moreover…his “krish3” ll kick-off ur taklu’s “kick”…both content-wise nd collection wise …mark my words nd till that time…shut ur malodorous mouth…
    nd i m again saying…srk has nothing to fear abt…once he decides a date … he releases on it….irrespective of the clash…not like ur “budha” “remake khan”…who delays his movies…when Ekta commences her ouatim 2 at eid…..

  • @telgu2lallu : Remember Ready? It was a non-holiday release and your srk is struggling from last 3 years to break collection of Salman’s least collection movie among 5 Blockbusters. Lack of knowledge, go and get educated first before commenting on Salman.

  • @ IMAM : My dear demented psychopath IMAM, you forgot ETT and Dabangg which were not south remakes.
    At least Salman is buying rights and making official remakes unlike ur beggar king who steals from Hollywood and dont even credit or pay them.
    Ask him to stop dancing at weddings and running behind candies (awards). Let him concentrate on movies and give at least one Blockbuster.

  • For funny jokes & silly comments plz stay in touch with @xzone who is almost present in this site & posts hilarious comments like for example -1.Srk is a rockstar2.srk’s chennai express is a classic piece coming this eid,3.He doesn’t need any festive season or holiday to make his film collect 100 cr then when were ra-one,don2 & jthj were released,his only 3 films to collect 100 cr during diwali & christmas.

  • @ hrithik, that’s a shocking news for others…….though am not sure whether mental will release in eid, but if it did…….or may be salman just want to put a scare….lol.

  • @xzone : It seems u do not have the capacity to digest facts. Abusing n mentioning ‘u’ n ‘u’ numerous times wont help u or demented buddha king either. Wake up, u r living in real world where srk is smeagol n salman is a rockstar !!!!

  • @stranger… ur name suggests u r really a stranger….bcoz i have never seen a comment posted by an id known as “stranger”…so it’s quite obvious that u r one of the coward sallu fan…who is not able to come with his original id as he knows that how much bashing he ll get frm me…lol…don’t behave like ur coward “remake khan”…if have guts, then come neck-to-neck….
