Q. Is Aamir Khan the real superstar now as he is the only one to take a big opening without backing of a holiday with Dhoom 3?

Ans. Dhoom 3 may not have a had a holiday but the film had around 125 crore spend on the just the production side of the film as compared to the 45 crore production spend on Jai Ho. When ticket rates are so high the audience will only come in numbers if they feel they are getting their tickets worth. Salman Khan is still the biggest star but his films have to be grander like Ek Tha Tiger rather than Jai Ho types if the record numbers are to come in.

Q. What was the budget of Jai Ho?

Ans. The film cost around 65 crore including marketing and prints but this is without Salman Khan remuneration but was purchased at a sky high price by its main distributor and even higher prices by various distributors in the circuits. The film probably had the highest table profit ever.
