What is this brouhaha about incorrect box-office figures doled out by the producers of Housefull 4?
– It’s much ado about something that’s been prevalent since years. Many producers do give out inflated box-office collections of their films but it is up to those reporting to correct them and put out the genuine figures. Frankly, not many so-called trade analysts and, of course, the self-styled trade analysts have the werewithal to get their hands on the genuine box-office collections and, therefore, either depend upon the producers for the same or randomly reduce the figures to appear unbiased. Both are dangerous moves. Film Information has a network of more than 200 representatives across India, to not just source the collections but also to verify those provided by the producers.
Will the fate of next week’s Bala be adversely affected because the other film on premature balding — Ujda Chaman — has released a week earlier?
– It’s the other way around. Perhaps, the fate of UJDA CHAMAN is going to be adversely affected as members of the public know that BALA is due next week and they may want to wait for that film.
What’s the whole purpose of bringing Radhe to the cinemas on Eid next year? Don’t you think, the film, which is still to roll, will have to be made in a tearing hurry?
– If Salman Khan is particular about releasing RADHE on Eid 2020, who is anybody to object? He feels, he can make the film and release it in six months, so that’s it.
