  2. Chef Is Lowest Opening Of 2017 – 15 Cr Plus Cost Films
    Friday 06 October 2017 16.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Chef has taken the lowest opening of the year if we take into account all the films which have cost more than 15 crore including promotion costs. The film was not expected to open well as trailers and the storytelling looked a disaster but still you would expect it can reach 1.50-1.75 crore nett but that is a huge task going by collections till 3pm. Last week we saw how good things can be when the right cinema is delivered to the audience and this week the Chef opening day number will probably show how bad things can be when wrong cinema is made. Actually its not correct to say wrong cinema but a better way to put it is past its sell by date cinema. The lowest openings of the year for films costing above 15 crore date are as follows. This does not mean the first day number will go in the following order but its lowest occupancy till 3pm on the opening day.

    Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Rang De Basanti which is a movie that changed the game in Bollywood will be screened at the first-ever Mauritius Film Festival.

    Mauritius will be celebrating 50 years of independence in 2018 and during the most special year, they are creating an annual film festival, that will honour global talent and achievements and for its inaugural year, that will be focused on films from all around the world that champion the theme of ‘freedom’ and ‘independence’.

    One of the films Mauritius authorities are going to screen, partly given the close current and historical ties with India, and which strongly echoes these themes in Rang De Basanti.

  6. SCOOP! Farhan Akhtar to act and direct Javed Akhtar biopic
    BySubhash K. JhaOct 7, 2017 – 10:47 am IST

    There are no two ways about the fact that poet-author-lyricist-activist-thinker-orator Javed Akhtar is one of Indian cinema’s most influential voices. And unknown to the world his family, primarily Farhan Akhtar and wife Shabana Azmi have been planning a biopic on the man and the poet, the thinker and humanitarian.

    While the family is tight-lipped about its dream project, a source close to the Akhtar-Azmi parivar spills the beans. “It’s been an idea under progress for nearly three years. And now it’s time to get going with the idea.” Not only will Farhan direct, he will also play his father.

    Shabana Azmi who is holidaying with her friends in Europe spoke on why a biopic on Javed Akhtar is in order: “It was on 4th Oct 1964 that Javed Akhtar arrived in Bombay at the age of 19 with two pairs of clothes, a few books and lots of dreams. This marks the 53rd year of that arrival. He slept on the streets, at Khar railway station, graduated to studio compounds, dressing rooms, Mahakali Caves and went without food for days.”

    The proud wife feels Javed’s life is hugely inspirational. “On his most desolate day he told himself, ‘Things will change, I wasn’t born to die on the streets.’ We can have nothing but unconditional respect for his indomitable will and for the person he is, rising above bitterness and anger to become the compassionate person he is. I am very proud of my Jadu.”

  7. The actor is apparently teaming up with Shahid Kapoor for a social drama, tentatively titled Roshni. Produced by Prernaa Arora and helmed by Toilet: Ek Prem Katha director Shree Narayan Singh, the film revolves around electricity thefts in small towns of India.A source working on the project reveals, “Abhishek was recently given a narration and was quite excited by the script. It is a story about two men — one is involved in electricity theft and the other starts a movement against the practice.”

    While Kapoor has already been roped in to play the lawyer who revolts against the unfair practice, Bachchan is Singh’s first choice for the parallel lead. If the actor signs on the dotted line, it will mark his first collaboration with Kapoor. With Yuva (2004), Housefull franchise and Happy New Year (2014) amongst others behind him, Bachchan is no stranger to movies with ensemble cast. However, Kapoor, who is currently at the peak of his career, is said to be averse to two-hero films.

    According to rumours, he signed Padmavati after he was assured that he’d enjoy as much screen time as co-star Ranveer Singh in the period drama. It will be interesting to see the dynamics between them. Katrina Kaif has been approached to play the female lead in the drama, which goes on floors next month. When mid-day reached out to Arora, she said, “Abhishek is surely on our wish list, but nothing has been finalised yet. We’ve already signed Shahid.

  9. Chef Has Awful First Day
    Saturday 07 October 2017 10.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Chef has taken an awful first day as it collected less than 1 crore nett. The film was not really expected to collect but these collections are even lower than those low expectations. The film should have at least got past fils like Noor and Guest In London and grossed in the region of 1.50 crore nett but here the collections are almost half of that with the first day collections coming in the 80-90 lakhs nett range. The started very poorly and these figures have come with the normal evening growth so it can be imagined how bad the morning was. This number means that even if the film doubles up on Saturday it will not help.it will have to probably treble up or even more and even Newton could not do that with support of an Oscar entry and here there is no such thing. The lowest numbers of some major releases this year are as follows. Chef has done less business than films Newton and Lipstick Under My Burkha but those are not included below as were limited releases and the ones below had 1000 screens or close to it.

    1. Chef – 90,00,000 apprx

    2. Guest In London – 1,17,00,000

    2. Noor – 1,23,00,000

    3. The Ghazi Attack – 1,55,00,000

    4. Daddy – 1,58,00,000

    5. Babumoshai Bandookbaaz – 1,61,00,000

    The other releases 2016 – The End, Call For Fun, Muavza Zameen Ka Paisa, Raktshar, etc were washouts. There were 8 releases this week and between them they failed to gather up 1 crore nett between them.

  10. Shockingly low numbers for Chef. The trailers looked decent.

    Could spell the end of Saif’s career as a main lead. He has basically lived off a few rom-coms for some years. But, he probably needs to re-invent himself and go for decent character roles, should any come to him.

  12. Judwaa 2 Remains Strong On Second Friday
    Saturday 07 October 2017 10.45 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Judwaa 2 confirmed its SUPER HIT status on its second Friday with collections in the 3.75-4 crore nett range. The film has now grossed over 99 crore nett and will either emerge the biggest HIT of the Hindi film industry for 2017 or the second biggest HIT. This is not including Bahubali – The Conclusion.

    The race is with Toilet Ek Prem Katha and at the moment after eight days the film is around 50-75 lakhs nett ahead and it remains to be seen what happens over the next 10 days or so. The collections of the film till date are as follows.

    Week One – 95,25,00,000 apprx

    Friday – 4,00,00,000 apprx

    TOTAL – 99,25,00,000 apprx

    The huge failure of Chef will help the cause of Judwaa 2. Chef only had a chance at those 50 odd high end multiplexes but even there Judwaa 2 is collecting more than double of Chef despite being on its eighth day compared to the first day of Chef. The drop from Thursday is around 35% which is good trending considering the Thursday saw strong collections. The film is in a neck to neck race with Toilet Ek Prem Katha to see which film emerges the biggest outright Hindi grosser of the year.

  17. Ajay Devgn, Farhan Akhtar and Sanjay Dutt – all three had a film release in September 2017 and all these movies had a disappointing run at the box office. While Ajay’s Baadshaho opened well but then couldn’t sustain, Farhan’s Lucknow Central and Sanjay’s Bhoomi flopped miserably. And now all three of them are set to collaborate. The film will be produced by Ajay Devgn while Farhan Akthar and Sanjay Dutt will be acting in it. Nishikant Kamat, who made the successful Ajay Devgn-starrer Drishyam, will be directing it.

    Now it has come to light that this particular film is a remake of the 2014 National Award-winning Tamil black comedy-thriller, Jigarthanda. The title of the film is inspired by a cold drink available in Madurai, Tamil Nadu where the film was set in. It was the story of an aspiring filmmaker who, after being thrown out of a reality TV show, decides to make a film on real-life gangster. Rang De Basanti actor Siddharth played the role of the aspiring filmmaker while the goon was essayed by Bobby Simha. Bobby won the National Award for this film along with Vivek Harshan for Best Editing. There were several other characters in the film and it remains to be seen who gets to play them in the Hindi version. Actress Lakshmi Menon played Siddharth’s love interest and a popular Bollywood actress is expected to step into her shoes.

UP is also is very strong while the little under performance has come down South but that is nearly always the case with this genre as the audience profile for Hindi films in the South is more of a gentry audience.

    Chef is a huge box office disaster and the way it is going it is not even going to get the numbers of films like Mirzya and Rock On 2. The film showed an improvement of 35% when it needed 135% and even them it would be some respectability and not success. The second day business has managed to go a little over 1 crore for a two day total of 2 crore nett.

    The film has been totally rejected even at the premium multiplexes and this rejection looked on the cards from the promos but even after the promos you would assume it can do 10-12 crore nett business but it seems its only going to half of that. The first two day business of Chef is as follows.

    Friday – 85,00,000 apprx

    Saturday – 1,15,00,000 apprx

    Total – 2,00,00,000

    There were seven other small releases including 2016 – The End, Call For Fun, Muavza Zameen Ka Paisa and Raktshar among others but all were unable to get any worthwhile numbers.

        It has been yet another terrible weekend for Bollywood. After the tremendous success of Judwaa 2, things have gone back to normal levels.

        Chef: Saif Ali Khan starrer is a huge failure as the film did not show much growth over the weekend despite a slow start. DISASTER

        Judwaa 2: Judwaa 2 has an excellent second weekend of 18.10 crores. It has managed a very good hold despite coming off a big number. SUPER HIT

        Newton: It has a decent third weekend of 1.49 crores. Apart from Judwaa 2, this is the only holdover release which had some reasonable collections. AVERAGE

        The releases of Judwaa 2 has meant that most of the holdover releases have come to an end of their box office run. Apart from Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, all films from Bollywood have failed.

However, there are few things you would never come across in a Salman Khan film: explicit content, Salman in an antagonistic role and skimpily clad female actors. Staying true to his brand of cinema, the ‘Tubelight’ actor has once again reportedly laid down these three clauses in front of the makers of ‘Race 3’.
    According to reports, apart from that, Salman also wants to increase the humour content in the film. Salman has reportedly asked the writers, and producer Ramesh Taurani to make the film funnier and add more humour in the script. Also, there was allegedly a drug-peddling scene in the film that was nixed on Salman’s insistence as he did not want to set a bad example for his fans, especially kids and youngsters who follow him.
    Add to that, the ‘Race’ franchise has also featured some steamy scenes between its protagonists. But that won’t be the case with Salman’s ‘Race 3’. The superstar wants the film to cater to family audiences and therefore, he doesn’t want even one steamy scene, the reports add.

  37. Ever since the news broke out during the weekend, Bollywood is mourning the loss of a great and unconventional filmmaker Kundan Shah. For superstar Shah Rukh Khan it is not just a professional but also a personal loss, since his bond with the veteran filmmaker goes back a long way. Recently, during the prayer meet of Kundan Shah, Shah Rukh Khan not only expressed his grief over losing such a great man but also reminisced about a few incidents.

    Very few may be aware that Shah Rukh Khan, who was a Delhi based theatre artist, stayed with Kundan Shah and his family when he arrived in Mumbai to become an actor. During the prayer meet, Shah Rukh Khan turned nostalgic about his struggling days wherein he expressed his gratitude towards the Shah family for showering him with warmth and affection. Considering his close bond with the filmmaker, Shah Rukh Khan described that he will mourn the loss of Shah for a long time like the way he mourned the loss of his mother.

    “He would tell me you don’t know how to act; I will never work with you. He would make me do a 100 retakes. I was fortunate to meet him six months ago at a book launch. I will miss Kundan.” Besides this, Shah Rukh Khan also revealed that he has a poster of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro in his house that he wanted Kundan Shah to sign. However, the director always refused to do so despite the actor’s insistence.

    Talking about it, the actor had also revealed that a few days ago he had told his wife Gauri that he would visit Kundan Shah soon to try again to convince him to sign it. But it seems that the actor’s dream remained unfulfilled as he had passed away before he could sign the poster.

    Hrithik Roshan while talking about the film shared, “The movie Pink inspired and affected me so much,” he said. “But it also got me thinking, why ‘No means No’ only applies to a woman?”

    With this, the actor posed a thought-provoking question to the world, if consent is a privilege only of the women.

    Social media rose in support to this question directed by the actor, in a day-long Twitter trend, ‘#nomeansno’ Twitterati came in support for the Superstar in large numbers.

    Hrithik Roshan has been receiving humongous support from social media, with fans, netizens and even Bollywood celebrities extending their support to his truth.

    • These comments by him illustrate that he does not “get” the issue. In India as it is we have far too many instances of “appropriation”, where privileged groups try and take over a discourse originally used to give voice to the oppressed or marginalized. For Hrithik to try and take over “No means no”, an essential part of the struggle for female autonomy over women’s own bodies, and to do it as a privileged hero in a filmi fraternity where sexual harassment, exploitation, and casting couches are rampant, suggests tone deafness at best, and a disgusting sense of entitlement at worst.

      • The case has dragged too long. It has become he said she said.

        There is no doubt that there was obsession and longing to be in relationship by Kangana. She probably has issues.

        But Hrithik contention that there was nothing between them is a big BS. There is enough prima facie evidence that suggest that he is lying with respect to degree of relationship.

        • The problem is where is the prima facie evidence? There is absolutely nothing that points towards a relationship that lasted several years. All Kangana’s camp could show was some photo-shopped pic at a party.

          Any relationship leaves proofs and evidences behind. They are both high profile persons. But there is absolutely nothing that suggests they have been in any serious relationship.

          And when you analyse what she has been claiming, her version is easily the less credible one. The lies are too obvious there and they only make her story less plausible.

          At the end of the day, we are still living in a society that is more ready to believe that a man has indulged in an extra-marital affair rather than to believe a woman is sexually harassing a guy. But in the current case, all the evidence point towards the latter. However, our pre-conceived notion tends to make us lean towards the former.

          • There is no mention of Hrithik in Pinkvilla question. Pinkvilla just guesses in title that it is Hrithik:
            https://www.pinkvilla.com/entertainment/exclusives/348765/exclusive-kangana-being-ousted-hrithik-exes-do-silly-things-get

            But Hrithik clarified against this with his Pope comment on Twitter.

            If there was nothing and name was not mentioned why he needed to clarify? Let assume he was getting one side mails from Kangana and he thought that silly ex must be him! Still doesn’t make sense? That could be reference to anybody until and unless if you had something?

            Now you talk about imposter. First of all how did he get imposter emails? It must be either from Kangana or imposter laptop? Imposter account has been inactive for more than six months so deactivated when cops enquired. Hrithik defense is that some fan handed him Kangana one sided emails from Kangana hacked account. How convenient!

            Another gem, A person who has been working with him has wrong email but Rangoli her sister has correct email!! Apparently imposter knew of Kangana fixation with Hrithik and decided to trick her!!

            My theory is that there is no imposter. It was Hrithik who operated it and he decided against proceeding with relation and stopped responding. Kangana was desperate and Queen was still to happen.

            Now if, the Kangana and imposter complain was correct then why this second complain in April 2017 where he claims that Kangana has been sending him explicit emails and harassing him. How both of them be true at same time?

            My theory is that Kangana use to share password with Hrithik and Hrithik cleaned up her system. He was operating two accounts during divorce. One general and one with Kangana. At certain point he felt he is better off without this relationship.

            There is no Photoshop of the picture; Suzanne picture just proves that she was also at that party and, Kangana and Hrithik were not alone.

            As for no picture of them together is correct but Kangana’s side is that Hrithik never allowed personal picture taken.
            The cyber forensic report is hogwash. It is paid by Roshans and anyone can cleanup their system with little know how.

            ps – There is difference between cropped and photoshopped. The intention of cropping was to show they were close which is incorrect. It seems Hrithik was too drunk in that party.

            p1 – I would have given benefit of doubt to Hrithik but he is petitioner and filing one complain after another.

  42. “I Told Her To Use Me, But She Ended Up Misusing Me”: Anurag Kashyap On Tisca Chopra
    Churri features the story of a couple where the philandering husband has an affair outside of his marriage.

    By Koimoi.com Team -October 12, 2017

    Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who has also acted in feature films like Akira, says he chose to star in the short film Churri because of actress Tisca Chopra. But she ended up “misusing” him.

    Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films is set to premiere four short films at the 19th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star this month. The platform will screen “Anukul” by Sujoy Ghosh, “Death of a Father” by Chaitanya Tamhane, “Churri” by Mansi Nirmal Jain and “Juice” by Neeraj Ghaywan.

    “I did Churri only because Tisca asked me to. Also because I am a big fan of ‘Chutney’ (her short film). I like what she is trying to do in the short film space and I told her to use me, but she ended up misusing me,” Anurag said in a statement.

    Talking about the short film space, the Dev.D director said: “Short films are the future and that space is getting super competitive. A lot of future artistes will be known for what they do in that space.”

    Churri features the story of a couple where the philandering husband has an affair outside of his marriage. The plot of the movie will create curiosity in the minds of the viewer when the wife confronts the mistress and an unusual and surprising twist transpires.

    I feel the circle is now complete: ‘Talvar’ director on the Aarushi verdict
    A film such as Talvar needed to serve a higher purpose. Till that happened, although it got acclaim, the film had achieved nothing in the real world

    • To be clear on Verdict, they are not pronounced innocent. Just in the lack of evidence, they are acquitted. Actually, Talwars also never showed much interest in bringing real culprits to justice by not co-operating with investigation.
      Movie was just a propaganda to show them innocent rather than disclosing cases and leaving it to audience to decide as nothing can be proved. Narco test also failed on Talwars and other 3 suspected. All in all, Justice denied, and talwars are to be blamed for this as much as negligence in initial investigation.
