Q. You have mentioned clashes of Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan but have Akshay Kumar and Shahrukh Khan ever clashed at the box office?
Ans. There is Jaaneman v Don but as far as solo starrers are concerned, it was in 1997 with Yes Boss and Daava. The opening day collections were not that different but Yess Boss recorded a first week almost double of Daava as that film crashed out. In 2004 there was also Veer Zahra and Aitraaz.
Q. It is being said that there is a big fall in price of satellite prices but how big is the fall?
Ans. Its huge a film looking at 10-12 crore this time last year is now beimg offered 2-3 crore. A film looking at 30-35 crore is down to around 12-15 crore.
Q. Would it not have better if films like Jai Ho and Baby had been sold at lower prices as trade may have been kinder to them?
Ans. This is all passe. Makers don't care about this. Example is Jai Ho. When you are getting over 100 crore for just theatrical rights and adding tv, music etc it will be 100 crore profit, you don't say i'll give it you for 50 crore as then it has more chances of being called a hit by the trade or media. Eventually these films would have done same business whether they fetched big prices or not. No one will refuse a big price unless they think its much less than what we can do at the box office.
Q. Who is the number one heroine today?
Ans. Deepika Padukone
