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!



  • @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 !!!!

  • @hritik srk still in trouble after watching this video of Salman or statement that he might be come to this Eid, bechare srk ne abhi tak release date announce nahi ki, ek to is Bar KKR ne bhi dubo diya bechare so called self acclaimed King ko.

  • @xzone if yashraj is not factor why u srk fans barking before the release of JTHJ that it will create history as its yash ji last movie and after death of him its become more hot ans due to Srk,yash,Katrina,Ar Rehman combo it will collect 200 cr and some foolish predicted 300 cr but jthj managed to collect 101 cr in India, and now u saying that there is no factor of yash chopra in this collection my dear if JTHJ made by any other director it would not even collect 80 cr forget 100 cr, its only yash Factor that it surpassed 100 cr, jab ra one and Don 2 solo holiday release hokar bhi 116 & 106 cr collect kar payi to socho agar srk akela factor hota to ye 80 cr bhi nahi karti due to clash of SOS and if it came solo than also not able to collect 100 cr with srk alone.. grow up dude i m not kidding you as your comments itself shows how little kid you are…

  • @xzone You lucky sod- Indicine are protecting you from me but I want you to know Im gunning for you like Malinga guns for batsmens toes with his toe crushing yorkers…! ;-)
    Indicine cant protect their fellow comrade forever and when the barriers down then Im taking you down Malinga style…!
    Go baby go

  • @aks…if yashraj was a factor in success of jthj…then i must ve to say that super-success of ett was also due to yrf….it’s their marketing strategies, which made that movie collecting 190 cr in india nd 60 cr in overseas….as we all knw that only some street dogs in overseas know, that who is “takla” khan…so , collection of ett in overseas was totally due to yrf….dude..i knw u r an srk hater, but don’t run away frm the truth….

    @naveen….the same thing…i wanted to tell u that it’s the moderation system of indicine….which has blocked my fingers while typing a comment…..beta…time ll say ..who is getting protected by indicine…me or u….but i want to remind u abt a same moron like u ..named “kabir”…if u r an old indicine visitor…then u must have experienced it that what treatment was given by me to that moron…so don’t blame to indicine….if u r so worried to teach me a lesson, then give me ur email-id or contact info nd then i ll see, who teaches a lesson nd who is being taught……anyone can bark on a shared platform with a fake-id…come into real world…common u “oaf”….till that time..just close ur malodorous mouth….

  • @xzone, yeah yeah I remember that Kabir vs Xzone boring boxing bout and how after not being able to get your way you started to attack ‘Kabirs’ mom for awhole 2 pages- Again indicine permitted that rubbish for several hours before taking down your sick comments… You impressed noone with that feces and lost the last gram of credibility you had at birth that shameful night…! :-P
    Now if you think for 1 slight second that that bakwaas you just repetitively spouted out that day scares me then get back in line at the Asylum for more treatment as that will be less torturous for you than me administering my world renowned ‘Jalwa’ moves on you before unleashing the ‘kick’ of the millennium which will make you go ‘mental’ once again before CD releases…!

    Sweetheart your family are exempt- I dont bring families into 1-2-1 arguements unlike you you savage but I do take great bordering on sadistic pleasure in dismantling every single fabric of tissue of a born loser like you…! ;-)
    Just bring what you got however little or irrelevant it is and I’ll give you my best and nothing less…!

  • @xzone : Everyone knows who was hiding for months. Better Spare urself from being getting more embarrassed else u will disappear for months again. :p

  • @indicine….ur decision is respectable nd accepetable for me…but i m sorry to say that it seems like it’s a biased decision…u r keep publishing the comments of “navin” and “hritik”, but u have still blocked at least 3 comments of mine on different pages of indicine…if this is ur justice, then plz make sure that it covers both the sides….so it’s my request that either delete their comments too, or plz publish my pending comments…thanks….

  • @hritik…i had kept a lot for u….but indicine is not going to publish that….so get calm nd enjoy….u r as u r commenting in this moderation era of indicine…..:):)

  • @xzone : Lol at your situation. There will be a tit for ur tat, I aint a saint to keep quite even if Indicine allows your comments !!!

  • @indicine So ‘cuteheros’ comment containing profanity is appropriate, @xzone doing evil things with kabirs mom as acceptable behavious but me saying ‘xzone suxXxXx’ is not permittable as you have not published 11 of my comnents these past few days….!

    Ok your site, your rules and for that reason I will tone it down but where have I personally attacked anyone that didnt deserve it is what I like to know…?

    Ok from now on I will comment on the topic and make only a hint of a reference that xzone is still a loser and that cannot be classified as personally attacking him as it is a well known FACT. Im just reiterating public knowledge and if you dont believe me then ask his neighbours and work colleagues in his over crowded cubicle who can tell you a sorry tale of woe thus backing me up…! :-(
