Q. Please can you tell me the final verdict of October?

R. Grover


A. It will depend on the final share. Average or Below Average depending on which side of 20 crore share it finishes.



Q. How much credit would you give Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan for the success of Dear Zindagi and Secret Superstar

J. Baria



A. As films they are bad so to get the average success they have it is down to these big stars. For Dear Zindagi it would be 80% Shahrukh Khan and 20% Alia Bhatt while Secret Superstar has only Aamir Khan so 100% down to him. Actually maybe 95% and Diwali release can be given 5%. The film could be 5-10 crore nett lifetime film without him due to poor content.



Q. You have Aamir Khan after Salman Khan in India rankings but a big magazine like Forbes has called Aamir Khan the biggest star in the World and surely this makes him bigger in India also

Moin Akhtar


A. When an Indian star working in HINDI is called the biggest star in the World (if it has been done) then that itself is a bit of joke. The only way you become the biggest star in the WORLD is by working in ENGLISH. The reach of the language is at a different level and for anyone to be even near the biggest star in the WORLD has to crack the North America and Europe markets. Aamir Khan or for that matter Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan or Akshay Kumar have not done that . A case can be made for Aamir Khan being the biggest star in Asia due to the China results of his latest films but that depends on how big the Chinese stars as that market alone could make them the biggest stars in Asia without the support of any other markets. These articles probably use the World instead of Asia as Asia probably makes it look like a local star instead of a worldwide star. It becomes a bit like saying Shahrukh Khan is biggest in West Bengal or Aamir Khan is biggest in Mysore in the India prospective which makes them look regional when someone else is top in most other circuits of India.
