What if Salman – SRK clash?

Part 2 of ‘Ask Joginder’. 5 more questions from Indicine readers answered!

The buzz around each Shahrukh and Salman starrers is higher than any other superstar. What would be the most precise expectations shall they release their films on the same date? – Hamza Khan

  • The way things stand today, neither of the two superstars nor those who would invest in their films would even dream of such a clash. Still, if their films actually decide to release on the same day, history would be created at the box office, fans would be out on the streets (practically so), there won’t be any space in media to write/talk about any other film for at least a fortnight leading to the release and the biggest beneficiaries would be ‘aam junta’ who would be guaranteed ton loads of entertainment from all quarters, even if not the film itself.

Don’t you think there is so much negativity surrounding the release of any Shahrukh Khan starrer, especially after Ra.One? – Tinku Jain

  • Others have seen a worst fate! Salman Khan has faced it, Akshay Kumar too was troubled and even Amitabh Bachchan wasn’t spared! On the contrary, Shahrukh Khan has still delivered three back to back 100 crore successes and doesn’t have a flop to his name for the longest time. One solid film (just like Salman enjoyed with ‘Dabangg’, Akshay with ‘Housefull 2’ and Big B with KBC) and fortunes would reverse in a big way for Shahrukh as well. All he needs is the kind of content to back his superstardom. ‘Chennai Express’ followed by ‘Happy New Year’ should be two such films.

What is the difference in word of mouth/audience feedback between Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Veer Zaara in India? – Rick

  • Big. ‘Veer Zaara’, even though not as appreciated as ‘Dil Toh Paagal Hai’, had still seen better word of mouth for a Yash Chopra-Shahrukh Khan combo when compared to ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’.

What is the expectation from Krrish 3? Is it possible for the film to beat the record First Day of Ek Tha Tiger? – Sayed Abid Shah

  • Very huge. It would beat the record First Day of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ by a very huge margin. Releasing one year down the line from now. ‘Krrish 3′ has enough potential for Roshans to be actually strategising the film’s release to enter the record ’50 crore First Day’ club. Yes, you read it here first!

‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ was expected to crush ‘Son Of Sardaar’. But do you think latter has emerged as a bigger success? As the days have passed, the difference in collections is reducing? – Priya Thakur

  • For starters, ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ was never expected to crush ‘Son Of Sardaar’; it was only the wishful thinking of certain fanatics within trade and industry. ‘Son of Sardaar’ was always hot. Though none of the two films are extraordinary, ‘Son of Sardaar’ has seen lesser brickbats coming it’s way than ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. However from collections perspective, the Shahrukh Khan starrer is still leading Ajay Devgn’s film. The films have 17 open days for them till the release of ‘Talaash’ and there is still some time to announce one of the two being a bigger success, both on absolute scale as well as on a comparative note.

  • @sahir….

    wht was happened to ur king….couldn’t beat ready’s lifetime collection in india…..still struggling….hahahahahahah

  • All Salman fans that he has given total 49 DISASTERS in his career…last was Epic Disaster in 2010 Veer. Clashing with SRK who’s last Flop was in 2005, now think who is Bigger. Poor Fatty Salman

  • It is not just Joginder, but almost all trade pundits are predicting records to be broken when Krrish 3 releases. Don’t believe me…look at tweets and internet sources. Of course, Salman fans have no access to these things, so they can only take my word for it. That means that all of you illiterate Salman fans should relax. You don’t want to overheat your small brain circuit. You should not worry about Krrish 3 too much, and wait for Christmas to pay and watch the deleted scenes of Dabangg.

  • Ek tha tiger is an ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER but not a blockbuster.It is made with a budget of 75 crores including all taxes and collected 199.66 crores in India itself.
    So i don’t want to see or listen from anyone saying it a blockbuster.

  • @black hell why you so excited with salman ready can your salman can come with 100 .cr club hero and do atleast like sos business in a week.

  • @black Aki is someone else. I never use abusing language. Mind it. Reality is reality. Its a good time for Sallu. But how know whats coming next.

  • I am 3 khans fan but my comments are not posted here specially sent to you thrice and sent hours before and day’s before still in moderation

  • No shame to SRK fans at all their so called king is unable to beat Ready collection 128-crores since 4-yrs now still talking or you could say bark ing all the time.

  • is there any srk fans who is sayin ett is jus a blockbuster n nt atbb??? if there are.. then check the status of jthj on boi.. is has jus collected 92 crore during 2nd weekend…
    poor srk fans..now their beloved mov jthj may nt even cross 100 crore ..:)

  • @Aki shame to salman fans who is claiming ready not par I bet when salman come with another 100 .cr hero salman show his real power we thanks srk even with competition and maharashtra off SRK shows his POWER

  • hahaha…i can’nt stop myself by laughing….they are comparing huma aapke hain kon and kabhi ha kabhi na….
    .i mean grow up guys…
    at that time…both srk and sallu r new comers…no one has star power…that battle was like ayushmaan khurana and ranbeer singh for this time….
    if u want to compare then take the reference of 2006…DON VS JANEMAN…..all of three…srk,sallu and akki had their own fan base at that time…who was winner…..????
    i am not saying that same thing will be repeated this time….both of them will get their space this time…but if u r expecting that CE will face the conditions like janeman…then frnds….
    keep dreaming….
    nothing such will be happen….

  • @Aki shame to salman fans who is claiming ready not par I bet when salman come with another 100 .cr hero salman show his real power we thanks srk even with competition and maharashtra off SRK shows his POWER
