Q. What is the budget of Varun Dhawan’s Badlapur and how much does it need to be a clean hit at the box office? – Faizan Tariq
A. Badlapur has been made on a medium budget of Rs 25 crore with a few more crores spent on marketing the film. The film would be a decent success if it manages to collect Rs 45 crore. Anything over 50-55 crore and it would be safe to call it a clean HIT at the box office. A lot also depends on how these films perform in the overseas markets and the price the satellite rights fetch.
Q. Who are most popular top 6 film stars of our country? – RAVI
A. When you say country, it would include the likes of Rajnikanth, Pawan Kaylan and other stars from the south too.. They are incredibly popular and command the craziest fan-base. In fact, some of them are literally worshipped. In Bollywood, the current standing is pretty clear. Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor. Overseas, Shahrukh and Salman flip places, the rest remain the same.
Q. Which movie will be more successful Bajrangi Bhaijaan or Prem Ratan Dhan Payo? – Sarthak Tyagi
A. Way too early to predict. The trailer, first look etc haven’t been released yet. On paper – considering the release date, genre and other factors – we’d bet on Bajrangi Bhaijaan to be the bigger grosser. It has a better release date and the genre is less dependent on content. In other words, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a safer film.
Meanwhile, we try answering some fun questions that we receive almost everyday!
- I belong to a non filmy background so can you tell me how to become actor and what are the proper ways to become an actor in Bollywood.. My height is 5 feet 7 inches so I can become actor or not and what are the requirements to become an actor in bollywood asks Sushil Rathi (Come to Mumbai and joins millions others who struggle to be the next Shahrukh Khan or Akshay Kumar. Talent alone is not enough, you got to have that x-factor to connect with the masses! Height is never a problem, we have superstars who are shorter!)
- Why don’t you publish some anti-comments against someone even if it doesn’t have any offensive word in it??? Even in 2nd page i have seen this act of yours.. asks Shail007 (Mate, the QnA section is for questions on Bollywood and not to question our comment moderation process! On a more serious note, we disapprove a few comments simply because they are off topic. We feel readers who are not familiar with the comments section might not understand / like the comment.
- How much will be the opening of Talaash , JTHJ (3hrs Long Boring film with no mass elements) if Salman Khan does it ? Just Replace Salman in the place of SRK amd Aamir with same picturization. Talaash (13.8cr) JTHJ (15.3cr) And These films were strictly for Multiplex Audience. Asks Rizwan Khan (If Salman would do Talaash, there is no way his kid would have drowned. Salman would have saved him somehow and the rest of the film would be fun and entertaining! Ghost Kareena would probably be doing Fevicol Se too. Opening 25 crore!)
