Pinkvilla has published a blind item about a superstar’s movie is being wrongly pushed to superhit status.
This superstar has tasted success after a while. After getting divorced & having a public spat with an actress, it must feel good to be back in business. His upcoming movie with a younger hero looks fab. It is sure to get a great opening. The audience couldn’t help but whistle when the trailer for their movie was screened when we went to see another movie recently.
The superstar & his father have been accused of fudging box office numbers before. This time around he has been accused of labeling his movie a superhit. For a movie to be labeled as a hit, it has to earn double its budget. It must be noted that the superstar is also one of the producers of the movie. He hasn’t charged acting fees, but will get a % of the total gross. It is not clear what the budget of the movie is. But we feel this blind item has been planted by one of his rivals. Yes, the same one whose movie released last week.
Whether a film is a hit or a flop, depends on many aspects. One such area is the box office collection made by the movie. A recent release of a superstar is being called a super hit by trade people, the studio and the actors. When in reality, the film still needs to collect at least 30 crore more at the ticket windows to enter the ‘hit’ club. The reason behind this is that the superstar in question is getting many projects to sign and a hit is what he needs for a boost in his career.
While the superstar has garnered great reviews with his mind-blowing acting skills, it has not reflected on the box office collections made by the film. As of now, it has managed to scrape the 100-crore mark. However, it still has a long way to go before it becomes a hit. In fact, fans are more excited for his next action thriller which is said to be the game changer in his career, rather than this one.
Apparently, audience would rather see his handsome face in masala entertainers rather than realistic and slice-of-life films. All the controversies have not helped the film become a star at ticket windows and his look in the film has also been criticized by many. But we won’t be too surprised if the film manages to achieve the magical numbers in the coming week and a huge party is thrown in its honour. Better luck next time, maybe?
