    • How many films will be ditched or cancelled here? Feels like this thing is only starting. Glad people are aborting. Housefull 4 would have been crap anyway, people are being saved the trouble here.

      • I think the producer will takeover direction from sajid. See the irony. When tanushree questioned they did not care and went about filming and when that thing hit the director directly they had to cancel the shooting. This is called poetic justice.

  5. Seems that Tanushree Dutta has filed a case against Nana Patekar and Ganesh Acharya. TOH could very much be the latter’s last big directorial outing in the near future if so.

    Are YRF going to include Acharya in the promotions campaign in the next couple of weeks? Let’s wait and see.

That just isn’t where the society is — we regularly elect people credibly accused of rape, murder, and pogroms. The only thing that might hurt someone’s election chances is serious accusations of financial corruption. Hard not to roll one’s eyes at that point.

        • She is a very good actress. I liked her with Govinda also. Even in Chalte Chalte and Saathiya she was good.
          In hichki, the role itself was somewhat a big putoff. Any other actress also would have been irritating in that role. I dont have anything against people with that problem But when it is portrayed onscreen it looks odd. Just like the way when dwarfs are used in films or very fat persons are used. Another role Rani could have avoided was that Aiyya role. It was embarrassing to watch do that role.
          Aamir should stop recommending these films. He will lose credibility. But he has to oblige friends. A sticky situation.

I get hiccups a lot because ‘apparently’ I haven’t learnt how to drink properly and it annoys everyone around me. Some tell me someone is remembering me, must be a gujju superstition of sorts. But anyway the story is ok but the syndrome makes it a tough watch. Rani is ok, does the best she can.

  10. Disaster Friday – Fryday Tummbad Helicopter Eela Etc
    Saturday 13 October 2018 11.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    There were multiple releases this week and it has turned out to be a disaster with all the films be it Fryday, Helicpter Eela, Jalebi and Tummbad failing to register at the box office. Helicopter Eela was the best of the lot but the collection was just 75 lakhs nett. The first day collections of the films were as follows.

    FryDay – 25,00,000 apprx

    Helicopter Eela – 75,00,000 apprx

    Jalebi – 35,00,000 apprx

    Tummbad – 50,00,000 apprx

    The combined total of all these four films is under 2 crore nett at 1.85 crore nett. They managed to take up around 2500 screens between them so with just 1.85 crore nett coming it is a paltry return. Even if we add the other two Hindi films Maal Road Dilli and Play This then it still does not reach 2 crore nett as these films had practically zero collections.

    Tummbad has the media support as expected so when collections are this low it should be able to show the best growth out of the lot but eventually there will not be many people out there to watch this type of film.

    There were a couple of Hollywood releases with A Star Is Born and First Man and these have not done much better with First Man coming out on top. The collections for First Man will be around 40 lakhs while A Star Is Born will be around 20 lakhs nett.

    All in all the audience has kept well away from the releases that have come out this week.

  11. Andhadhun Is A HIT – Venom Is Average
    Saturday 13 October 2018 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Andhadhun has emerged a HIT film as it collected around the 3 crore nett mark on its second Friday. The collections are better than the first day and the seventh day, The film jumped around 20% from yesterday. and has taken its nine day total to around 29 crore nett.

    The film was helped out by the poor new releases which meant Andhadhun had little competition and whatever competition there was actually came from the holdover Venom rather than any new film. Venom is an AVERAGE fare as it collected 1 crore nett apprx on its second Friday and it should cros the 30 crore nett mark in its lifetime run.

    Andhadhun is set for a strong run and is sure to run till Diwali. The film is being liked by the metro audience and these films easily have the potential to get 50 lakh people into the theatres even without a cast. Some like Neerja get to 70 lakh plus but that was with the help of tax exemptions. Andhadhun saw only 22-23 lakh footfalls in week one so there is huge scope in the next few weeks to more than double up which should see the film go over 60 crore nett at least

  12. Salman Khan’s nepotism hits rock-bottom with LoveYatri

    ByBollywood Hungama News NetworkOct 13, 2018 – 10:42 am IST
    Salman Khan’s forceful recommendation of his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma’s debut film LoveYatri did not stop the film from sinking at the box office, at a shockingly rapid speed. By the time the first weekend was over, so was Sharma’s Salman-driven dreams of stardom. Salman, known to back his protégés to the hilt, was apparently unsure of Aayush Sharma’s screen potential from the outset.

    A close friend of the Khan reveals, “Salman wasn’t keen on launching his brother-in-law. But what to do? Damaad ki baat thi (it had to do with the son-in-law). Everyone knows Salman won’t deny his baby-sister Arpita anything, even if it means launching her husband as an actor.”

    Apparently, once Salman plunged into the process of putting Aayush on screen there was no looking back. “He tried to get an A-lister heroine. But all of them excused themselves pleading lack of time. Only Katrina Kaif would have said yes. But since she’s so closely associated with Salman it would have looked odd to see her romancing with Salman’s brother-in-law. They had no choice but to sign a newcomer opposite Aayush. All the established director-friends of Salman also begged off. A new director had to be sent.

    Says Salman’s pal, “Now that the launch-pad has fizzled out, this is the end of Salman’s commitment to launch his brother-in-law.” The one breathing a sigh of relief must be Karan Johar who backed out of co-producing Aayush Sharma’s launch film, much to the wrath of Salman Khan.

    But then, Bhai doesn’t have to be indulged every time.

  39. Top Opening Weekends China: Hichki 8th – Dangal 3rd
    Monday 15 October 2018 11.15 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Hichki has had an ordinary weekend in China though its done well to get to over $4 million after the start it had. The trend is decent with $750k coming on Friday but Saturday and Sunday doing in the range of $1.75 million. The Chinese market normally falls on Sunday but this was the same as Saturday which gives hope for good holds over the weekdays. It is the eighth highest opening weekend for a Hindi film.

    The problem is that Dangal, Secret Superstar, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Hindi Medium scored very well back to back and expectations went up but since then the numbers have not really come. It will be down to Thugs Of Hindustan to get the big numbers which has Aamir Khan who is the only Indian actor with a draw in China. There was an attempt to release this film simultaneously with India but the Chinese distributors call the shots and it was not able to happen. It could see a release in late November though that is not certain and depends on the local distributors.

    As for Hichki it will be about Monday and the target is probably to try and push over that $10 million mark. Secret Superstar, Hindi Medium and Dangal remain the top three openers and all topped the $10 million mark for the weekend with the first named going over $20 million. The top ten opening weekends in China of Indian films are as follows. The number of shows over the weekend are in brackets.

    1. Secret Superstar – $27,180,510 (181,796)

    2. Hindi Medium – $15,771,827 (146,889)

    3. Dangal – $12,512,356 (98,814)

    4. Toilet Ek Prem Katha – $9,096,164 (168,023)

    5. Bajrangi Bhaijaan – $8,503,621 (61,909)

    6. Bahubali – The Conclusion – $7,684,706 (144,520)

    7. PK – $4,654,829 (51,122)

    8. Hichki -$4,222,000 (96,350)

    9. Dhoom 3 – $1,222,637 (16,405)

Even with one proper week at the box office, Aanand L Rai feels a film will work no matter what happens. “I personally feel that films like Stree, Baahubali or in my case Tanu Weds Manu could release at any time, it will do its business. But, in this case, the only difference is that not because of holiday and not because of it’s a hugely invested and financially heavy film so it needs a certain window, just leave it apart. In its flavor and in its mood, I knew it’s a Christmas film. It’s a happy film; it required a certain atmosphere for my audience also. In 2016 I said this, there are several holidays but it’s about the mood. This film is for Christmas.”

    Speaking exclusively to Bollywood Hungama, a fan asked a question to Aanand L Rai about Rs 350 crore expectations from Zero. But, the question also stated whether he is worried that Simmba might affect Zero at the box office. To this, Aanand L Rai responded, “If I have made a good film, then Rs 350 crore is the expectation. And again, numbers are very important. Right now, I am in a zone where I think that I have a very good film. I only have one word to say that I had fun making this film and you should have fun while watching it. And if the fun matches the box office numbers that the audience is expecting then it has matched.”

    Saw Tumbbad. Absolutely stunning film. One of the most original films to come out of India in a long time. It’s visually amazing and quite scary too. Not in a pure horror sense, but more like those old folklore tales from villages. If you get a chance, watch it on the big screen, it will be an experience to remember.

        That’s the really sad part about it. The distribution strategy has been weird and it has been seriously under-marketed.

        Don’t get BOI’s stance on it either because it is such an Indian film in every which way.

        Interestingly, all the prints here are carrying English subtitles for it, which were very useful as well.

    Actor Sohum Shah is currently riding high on success and is getting rave reviews for his critically acclaimed film ‘Tumbbad’.

    The talented actor has put in tremendous efforts for the film for six years and we can definitely say that Sohum’s hard work has paid off well. Not only the audience even the critics are hailing the film.

    The film has received immense praise from Bollywood celebrities and also from celebrated filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani.

    Rajkumar Hirani took to his twitter handle and wrote,”#Tumbbad is a visually dazzling & amazing original film. A rollercoaster ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It must be enjoyed only on a big screen.
    Rajkumar Hirani had seen Tumbbad some months back, Interestingly Rajkumar Hirani who is usually not very active on social media platforms took to his twitter handle and praised Tumbbad. And not just once, but now he has posted a message with an appreciation for the film even after its release.

    Recently actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Rajkummar Rao, Arjun Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha and Tiger Shroff too have showered their love on Sohum’s Tumbbad.

    Even one of the most celebrated filmmakers, Imtiaz Ali enthusiastically described the film as “a brilliant, enjoyable film. Never seen anything like this before.”

    Interestingly, when Sohum showed the film to Aanand L Rai, he almost immediately came on board to present the film, describing it as a genre-defining one which will dazzle the audience and give one an unmissable theatrical experience.

    Tumbbad has become a rage amongst the audience who have been posting on social media about how the film’s production and VFX quality is even better than some of the Hollywood productions.

    The comments from the audience are ranging from Tumbbad being called one of the greatest films ever made to a film that will be remembered and loved for a very long time.

    Tumbbad offers spectacular visuals which takes the audience on a trip to the interiors of ancient, cultural Maharashtra giving glimpses into the quintessential attires and lifestyle of Konkanasth Brahmans.

    Giving glimpses of fantasy, action, frights, and scares, Tumbbad is a horrific and thrilling experience that questions the roots of human greed while providing entertainment of the purest kind.

    The trailer of the film has left the audience gripped as Tumbbad presents an interesting mixture of mythology, fantasy and thriller leaving everyone with a spine-chilling experience.

    The much ambitious project has been roller coaster ride for Sohum Shah while Aanand L Rai defines the film as a genre-defining film.

    Tumbbad is an Eros International and Aanand L Rai’s presentation and a Sohum Shah Films in association with Colour a Yellow Productions. Co-produced by Filmi Vst and Filmgate Films. Tumbbad is successfully running across theaters since 12th October 2018.

  66. Wondering what the mistake was? The last line of Trump’s tweet that read, “She knows nothing about me, a total con!” The wrong placement of the punctuation changes the meaning of the sentence. While Trump’s tweet aims to accuse Daniels of being a ‘con’, it can be read as an insult directed at himself. Moreover, the last name of the adult movie star is also spelt wrongly in Trump’s tweet.

  73. Badhaai Ho Has Good Opening – Namaste England Poor
    Thursday 18 October 2018 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Badhaai Ho has taken a good start of around 30-35% while Namaste London is poor at around 10-15%. The opening of Badhaai Ho is better than the other small medium films Sonu Ki Tito Ki Sweety, Raazi and Stree. It has opened better than Dhadak in the bigger centres but collections in the Jaipur’s and Indore’s are less. This is also the case when compared with Stree but it is a minimal difference there.

    The added boost to Badhaai Ho compared to the other films is that its a holiday in many parts of the country. In Delhi Punjab it is not a holiday but the film has opened well there anyway due to the very authentic feel of middle class Delhi which shone in the trailer.

    Many makers try to make this type of film due to the high concentrate of big multiplexes in the North belt but some get the aunthenticty and language correct while others are not quite there and its the former with Badhaai Ho. The holiday n delhi and Punjab will be tomorrow and the collections are sure to jump in these pasrts from a good start.

    Namaste England was a downer from the theatrical trailer which was very 90’s cinema. The film had some decent music but the damage had been done with the trailer. The opening is very low and on top its a holiday in 65% of the market which makes recovery a huge task for the film. The initial shows show double the response for Badhaai Ho and this may get wider as there are far more screenings at multiplexes for Badhaai Ho later on in the day. The opening show admits for both films are as follows
