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.

  • @kg

    let me tell u Maharashtra BANDH..wasn’t official….it was tribute given by LOCAL MUMBAIKAR..to Late.Balasaheb thakre..wasn’t official called off..

  • Jab Tak Hai Jaan collected 82.25 approx in its extended ten day first week. The first week distributor share is 46 crore approx. Below is the first week territorial breakdown.

    Mumbai Circuit – 27.85 crore

    Delhi/UP – 15.73 crore

    East Punjab – 7.05 crore

    West Bengal – 5.39 crore

    Bihar – 1.60 crore

    CP Berar – 3.35 crore

    CI – 2.88 crore

    Rajasthan – 4.90 crore

    Nizam/Andhra – 4.63 crore

    Mysore – 5.65 crore

    Others – 3.21 crore

    TOTAL – 82.24 crore

    Note – The actual collections have come in 9-10% lower than estimates given throughout the first week….

    Ye SRK fans hamesha BOI ki figures ki duhai dete h na…jab ETT release hui thi aur to to wikipedia bhi inki figures ko accept krta h…ab kya kroge….jigar k challo..pehle to 91 cr bta rhe the BOI wale pehle week me aur ab unke actuals 82 cr ho gye…oops..ab to chupne ki bhi jaga ni bachi…aur bhnko tum BOI figures pr…der actuals r less den 17 cr frm d official first week figures of ADDATODAY & other trade analysts & sites..

  • @jokerahaqlas…each trade analyst has their own way of estimation….if some one is claiming JTHJ as 100 cr on boxoffice….then it never means that it is fake…may be their source of analysis is somewhat different than BOI or other sites(what u have mentioned…)…
    so don’t get stubborn that the site u’ve mentioned is providing actual figures only bcoz that is showing less figures of JTHJ….
    Jab tak hai jaan has crossed 100 crores…and movie is looking for 200cr+ worldwide……..(lifetime..)…

  • srk fans embarrsed them with movie jab tak hai jaan: OH hell yeah

    can talaash beat JTHJ lifetime collection: Oh hell yeah

    can dabangg 2 cross 200 crore: OH hell yeah

    salman khan is undisputed king of bollywood: Oh hell yeah

    and thats the bottom line cause stone cold said so

  • Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
    where r u all srk fan aur bhonko ett ka box office collection 186 cr hai
    is there any srk fans who is sayin jthj’s ten days box office collection is 82 cr!!!!!!!!!!!!! NONE. go and then check the status of jthj on boi is has just collected 82 crore during 10 days.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

  • @stone cold steve austin…..stop copying the same comment yaar…
    u r posting it here n there continuously….by posting it…
    wat do u think…???
    SRK fans will get upset…..
    i want to tell u one thing…we r fan of SRK …not coz he is the finest actor in b/w…he is the king nd all that….
    instead of it…we r fan of SRK…bcoz we feel proud by doing so…….

    love u srk….u will remain the “king” forever….

  • for kind of your information, Janeman was praised and loved by everyone… the problem was at that time SRK had much bigger fan following than Salman.

    Time has changed.. it is opposite now.

    Go watch Janeman and Don-1 .. and compare yourself… janeman was an innovative movie at that time…

  • @akram..exactly bro..i am agree with u that janeman had good content…
    despite of it …movie was a bigger flop…now they are talking abt CE vs kick…so…wat do u think about it….plz tell me…then i will continue further…..

  • @black first i want to thank u as i went through boi to enquire about Ek tha tiger but got some interesting news that jthj hasn’t crossed 100 crores but collected 92 crores by its 13 days i.e yesterday.Now i really wonder can it cross the lifetime of don 2 in these 4 days till the release of talaash.

  • @king: READ MY PREVIOUS COMMENT ABOUT KICK it’s is re-written by Chetan Bhagat and It will be very big movie and I don;t think so any of star will release their movie on same date.

  • I don’t think any Salman movie can gets 50 cr next year or anyone.yeah it may possible 2 years down the line.But 40 cr looks possible for first day if there is holiday.

  • i dont believe it, when ek tha tiger was runing in theaters these srk fans were saying during that time that boxofficeindia is right not trade analyst such as taran and komal nahata, but now these guys sayng that BOI is wrong because according to them it didnt cross 100 crores. all the time they brag about salman being wrong to srk. here is history lesson when srk started in the industry salman supported this guy . did cameo for him Kuch kuch hota hai and om shanti om without charging any money. there was twice when salman asked him to do cameo he rudly refused. moreover, in salman’s girlfriend birthday he said to salman his show better than 10 ka dum which is rude. when MNIK failed at boxoofice and dabangg created histroy he started showing his fakeness in KOffee with karan. salman even went to JthJ premiere not becuase of him but for late yash ji with keeping in mind that its srk’s movie who is the person reponsible for bad reputation about salman. doing good things and showing off doesnt make you a good person a big heart make you a good person and that is the major difference between salman and srk . salman always had a big heart that is why he was awarded 2nd personality after anna hazarre as a social activist

  • @aki….bro…i am agree with the later part of ur comment ….
    no two stars will release their movie on the same day…and if they do so…then both will be affected…..
    in the starting….the same thing i told…that if they both clash….
    then CE and kick both will affected by a huge margin….
    am i right…???

  • krrish 3 will be historical winner at box office..
    First day 50 cr
    weekend 150 cr
    week 200 cr..
    Life time 350 cr..
    Hrithik is the baap of all…whenever hrithik does a action movie, he rockss the box office and setting new records…
    Krrish 3 will be historical all time blockbuster in the bollywood…
    Each and every hrithik movie will shatter records…hrithik ‘s best…

  • @ron

    Talaash will have more screens….like ETT..i heard ..it may be 3000+…so its difficult to jthj to cross Don2 lifetime collection in India..in overseas jthj doing reasonable business…so lifetime worldwide collections will be slightly less than 200cr….

  • salman and srk are both trendsetter. salman is trensetter of giving blockbuster after blockbuster where srk is a trendsetter of having so much hype gathered around before the film and after the release it fails and just become average or merely hit. this trend of srk started with MNIK and now it will go long way. srk fans are trendsetter in finding the excusses. during Mnik they said its ball thakrey, during raone blamed negitivity by critics. JTHJ blaming Ballthkrey’s death again and SOS. please cheapos atleast have a dignity and not blame anybody death for lesser collections

  • hmmm, Joginer says JTHJ is not as appreciated in India as DTPH and Veer Zaara. Can someone tell me how the audience feedback/word of mouth was in India for all these 3 films, as well as Darr?

  • kyun ladte rehte ho yrr superstar ek h hota hai …………… aur wo salman hai jab salmanmania suru ho jata hai to sab chup ho jate hain……………………….. and one more thing salman ke bare mai itna kuch bolte ho acting nai ati …. story nai hoti hai to phrr movie kyun dekhne jate ho itna paise kaise kama leti hai uski films aur film maan lo do maan lekin sabhi kamaleti hain yrr……… ………. this proves frnds u can hate him but u cannot ignore him……………….. baap ek he hai aur wo hai tiger salmn khan ………………. 50 cr first day bhi uski film ollect karegi………………..

  • @black hell w_yne…
    well salman khan has starred in more than 80 films and still has only a few hits…about 19 as you are saying…cut the ratio yourself…

  • @black hell w_yne… kya yrrr juth bolne pe aram nai ati hai kya he is he only star he in indai to have 5 all time blockbuster nd blockbusters

  • Mr tuteje must be crazy . . 50cr for krish2. . 1st of al we dnt knw weather its a holiday or not . . If it is a holiday then also it doesnt collect 50cr Bcoz of pooja. . . Same thing he told combine of jthj and sos wil be 10cr more than ett 1st day . . But Wht is result we al knw it. . I dnt understand y such lazy illogical trade experts are appointed. .

  • choti film ko bdi banane wla superstar sai salman …… srk ki tarah nai ……. chopra ke sah kam kar liya …… unki film main sb kuch itna acha hota hai ke usmaain kisi debuttant se acting karva lo supe hit ho jayegi ….. srk ki kya jarurat …… salman carries the whole movie in his shoulders….. eg … ready body guard………… ab maan bhi lo yr slman is baap………….
