      • Not blogging I believe. I’m sure she frequently visits here. Am in touch with her but rarely.
        Once Taran Adarsh stopped I stopped.

        Personally I think there is a genuine gap in market in India for a proper box office reporting infrastructure to be set up. What you have today is
        1) not professional
        2) not transparent
        3) bias

        Someone could make an absolute killing sorting it out.

          Even for HF4 will go by your number. But not sure if industry will accept it. Fo that, we need to keep doing the good work and over time it will win.

          What will make you to do this consistently? I mean 1 day every week would be needed, i presume.

          • Twitter gives you visibility and you could become famous with few tweets. But you could be at receiving end as well. If you can choose to ignore then I guess you could be better than most, if you have data. Most of folks out there lack understanding of raw numbers which you have.

          • Ha Jayshah! You will face no wrath at all since I am hardly on social media!!

            On a serious note, it will be good to feed some ‘truth’ on twitter. But as Munna said, you will face abuses but I know very well you will use social media judiciously…
