Q. Will there be a clash between Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani in December 2015?
Ans. It is a long time away but it seems to be heading for a semi clash and not outright clash. Bajirao Mastani will not be coming on Christmas but most likely a week earlier on December 18. The clash will be in the second week of Bajirao Mastani if both films stay on schedule. It's like Chennai Express v Once A Upon A Time In Mumbai Returns Clash.
Q. Why in Worldwide gross do you add India gross to Overseas Nett?
Ans. The Overseas figures are gross so India gross has to be added to them. Only if Overseas was nett then India nett can be added.
Q. Why is there a difference in your commentary when Piku and Tanu Weds Manu Return both have similar jumps in weekend, Piku is a success while Tanu Weds Manu returns is a blockbuster success?
Ans. Its more about where you jump. Piku jumped in cities where it always had a a chance to show big jump and where films normally show growth. Tanu Weds Manu Returns jumped in cities where films do not normally show huge growth. The jump may have been the same but Tanu Weds Manu pushed its reach on day two which meant a very big grosser. Only with reach you can get true appreciation and a big number, in another words go outside the target audience which very few films do and that is difference between normal hit and Blockbuster hit.
Q. Bombay Velvet is being looked at as Anurag Kashyap's Mera Naam Joker, can he comeback like a Raj Kapoor did?
Ans. Raj Kapoor was an established director with blockbusters behind him. Here the story is different as the director is yet to establish himself and comparing with a Raj Kapoor is ridiculous. You only comeback if you have hits and then flop here this is not the case but a line of flops.
