Q. Can Boss do 125 or 150 crore nett as it fetching huge prices and super hot in the trade?
A. The film is not being sold for high prices or fetching huge prices as you put it. A circuit like Rajasthan has gone for 3 crore where a Khiladi 786 which was not a major grosser did a share of 3 crore. Today a hot film will easily go for 5 crore in Rajasthan. 150 may be too tough for the film as it is Pre-Diwali but 100 is possible if content is good.
Q. Is Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani a bigger grosser than Chennai Express if we take out the holiday factor?
A. The fact is you can't take out the holiday factor, a film releases and it does X amount of business, holiday or no holiday. Star power you have to compare by taking the holiday factor out as star power is only about a day or three.
Q. Does Satyagraha have any chance of being a hit or super hit?
A. Not really the opening was not good enough, although it trended well it had to a little more. It won't be a hit.
Q. Does Shudh Desi Romance have any chance against a big film like Zanjeer?
A. Shudh Desi Romance will probably do better business as core Hindi markets will be better. Zanjeer only has chances in South while North will be bad.
