We will make an official announcement soon”.

Q. How big a star was Sanjay Dutt in his prime? Is Ajay Devgn a bigger star than Varun Dhawan and Ranbir Kapoor? Who are the top 5 stars in single screens? (John)
A. Sanjay Dutt was in the top five actors during his prime. Of course, Ajay Devgn is the bigger star than Varun Dhawan at mass centres only. Nowadays Ajay Devgn’s films are not working at the multiplexes while Varun Dhawan is becoming much popular among the youngsters. At present top five stars at the single screens are in this order… Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Amir Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar.
Q. What happened to Saif Ali Khan career. At one time he was looking good in position with cocktail and race 2 and was capable of bringing the audience in the solo film. Now he is having the opening of less than 1cr. What according to you is the reason!!? (Gaurav vats)
A. Yes, you are absolutely right. Saif Ali Khan’s career is going down from the past 3-4 years. He has good acting skills but after Race 2 he has been failed to get good movies. Now he needs a very good script to come back. His next release ‘Kaalakaandi’ is also not a commercial film. In coming days he has to be very careful in choosing films scripts.
Q. Is Varun Dhawan already ahead of Ranbir and a current lot of young generation? And my second question is – few years back Akshaye Khanna and Bobby Deol considered to be big stars. Where do you think their career has gone wrong as everyone knows Akshaye is very talented and Bobby had good looks and he is a decent actor? (Sid)
A. Varun Dhawan is not a bigger star than Ranbir Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar but he is now on the top position among all other young stars like Ranveer Singh, Sidharth Malhotra etc. Akshaye Khanna and Bobby Deol both are talented actors but they had never been considered as big stars.
Q. How did Salman Khan make his transition from a romantic hero to an action hero? Who are the biggest mass action superstars of all time in Bollywood? (John)
A. Salman Khan became an action hero since the time of his film ‘Wanted’ which had been directed by Prabhu Deva. And everybody knows about Prabhu Deva’s actions films. We don’t know what you think but we think Hrithik Roshan is the biggest mass action superstar of all time in Bollywood.
Q. Did Mithun Da deserve better roles in Bollywood? (Hhh)
A. Yes, of course, he deserves for better roles, he is a megastar of Indian cinema during the 80s and 90s he stands equal to Amitabh Bachchan. His recent films like OMG and Golmaal returns proves that his acting is very charming.
Q. Do you think Salman can reach the only actor to have 20 blockbusters? If he reaches there, how big a star would he be considered? Next to big b? I think Salman has 14 blockbusters & Tiger Zinda Hai & Race 3 if turned bb, it will unimaginable, unthinkable 16 blockbusters and counting. Do you think when Salman films won’t work, he would do small budget character roles to earn some solid reputation as an actor as he advised Govinda to do small budget art films? (SK Rutvi)
A. We hope so Salman Khan can give 20 blockbusters to the film industry, he is a megastar of Bollywood, he deserves better roles and better scripts but he should choose scripts carefully because loose and light scripts decrease his stardom. He is actually disappointing his fans by doing such films like Tubelight etc. At present Salman Khan doesn’t need to do any small budget films to earn some solid reputation. He has already received much more reputation amongst his fans.
Q. Hi your website is good I ask two questions my first question any update race 3 when official announcement? And my last question if tiger zinda hai do 300 core then it is highest grosser of the year? (Aaqib Ali)
A. Thank You Aaqib Ali. There is no any official information regarding Race 3 announcement from the production team, If there will be any update, We will publish an article about this. ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ is one of the biggest releases and much-awaited film of the year, If the film will be managed to attract more audience then it can do 300 crores very easily.
Q. Will Akshay have a meatier role in 2.0? If not how much will it impact in Hindi version collections as most Hindi audience would want longer screen presence of his? (Tabishaikh)
A. Yes, Akshay Kumar has the full presence in 2.0, he is playing the role of Villain in this film. He is known to play positive characters and this time he is playing the role of Villain so audience wants his presence till the end of the film and if this will not happen then definitely around 50 percent collections will decrease in North India.
Q. When the top 10 Bollywood actors article going to be published? (Kartik Yadav)
A. After Golmaal Again.
Q. When Akshay released 4 films so thats why he was failed to give big openings and huge grossers but this time he has only two released still he failed and other hand Varun has too two movies released this year and it collected same as Akshay movies.. So now Varun is equal to akshay and is akshay nowhere to khans who has 200 cr 300 cr movies?
A. They both are giving back to back hits movies but Varun Dhawan is not equal to Akshay Kumar, he will have to wait for 3-4 years more to reach Akshay Kumar’s position. And Akshay Kumar is not close anywhere to any Khan because All Khans(Salman, Shahrukh, Amir) have been joined 200 crore club but Akshay Kumar has not joined yet.
Q. Why most of the Bollywood actors choose remake? (Dev Sahu)
A. Most of the actors don’t want to work in any remake but these days film producers have not many good scripts So they offer remake to Bollywood actors And they also think that remake movies will work for the audience.
Q. Who was a bigger star between Salman, Srk and Sunny in the 1990s? When did Amitabh Bachchan’s stardom finish? Do you think anybody can reach the level of even Dharmendra in today’s times? (John)
A. Sunny Deol was the bigger star in the 1990s. Amitabh Bachchan was supreme before 2005 but he has lost his stardom after 2005. And Nobody can’t reach the level of Dharmendra in today’s times.
