BO Report Card: ‘Kill Dil’ rakes in only Rs 20 crore in its opening weekend

Posted on 20 November 2014 by admin

‘Kill Dil’ kills box office bill with negative word-of-mouth publicity

Filmmaker Shaad Ali returned to direction after a seven-year hiatus with ‘Kill Dil’, but it has proved to be a disastrous comeback so far. The film has collected about Rs 20 crore in the opening weekend which is way below the mark for a Yash Raj film.

Exhibitor Rajesh Thadani says, “The film’s collections have been low due to the negative word-of-mouth publicity. The business will only continue to sink. This is a huge setback not only for Parineeti Chopra and Ranveer Singh but also Govinda for whom it was sort of a comeback film.”

Trade pundits also seemed shocked with the first day collection of a Ranveer Singh-starrer. A trade analyst says, “The film made only Rs 6 crore on the first day, which has never happened with a Ranveer Singh film. His ‘Gunday’ had grossed Rs 42 crore in the opening weekend while ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela’ had made Rs 50 crore.

Another trade analyst, Amod Mehra adds, “Kill Dil has failed to woo the audience and collection over the weekend did not jump. Surprisingly, Yash Raj Films has released the film with limited shows in limited multiplexes. However, Govinda’s work has been appreciated.”

Actors not exempt from human feelings: Nargis Fakhri

Posted on 20 November 2014 by admin

Commenting on the constant nudges on relationship status by the media, actress Nargis Fakhri says actors are also entitled to some privacy.

“Being spoken about on a public platform does not give a nice feeling to anyone. Actors also like to have some privacy in their life. Actors are not exempt from those (human) feelings and do get bothered by link-up stories,” she told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

The actress, who forayed into Bollywood with “Rock-star” was in the news for her relationship with actor-producer Uday Chopra and recently fueled another rumor of dating actor Hrithik Roshan. But she seems to be a firm believer in the phrase ‘ignorance is bliss’ and prefers to ignore all such reports.

“I think when you are in this field you have no choice but to ignore such reports,” the actress said.

Fakhri, who launched Parachute Advanced Knowledge Centre’s Art of Oiling with international massage expert Moses Chundi recently, also outlined a number of benefits of coconut oil and stressed on the revival of the art of oiling which is vanishing from India.

`I have learned so much from India, for instance the use of aloe vera which I use and I find it sad when I see certain arts of oiling slowly fading away.

“I use coconut oil every single day. I apply coconut oil on my whole body for moisturizing. The oil can also be used as make-up remover as it is light based and is not sticky,” said the actress. The actress, who believes in a holistic approach in her lifestyle, said that massage should be incorporated to enhance one’s well being.

“I think massage is a very important part of life, which is present from centuries as an imminent part of India’s tradition,” she said. The actress who also showed her acting prowess in serious films like `Madras Cafe` and went on to raise temperatures with item numbers like “Devil” and “Dhating naach” said in today’s busy life health in being neglected.

“In this hectic life, we have no time to take care of ourselves, hence massage is needed for rejuvenation and stress reduction. A lot of people are looking for quick fixes like they are taking medications and they are doing other things which are not healthy. But massage is very holistic and natural,” she said.

Minissha Lamba’s Bigg Boss mentor Pooja Bedi takes a U-turn

Posted on 13 November 2014 by admin

AFTER Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar had questioned Minissha Lamba’s claim that Aarya Babbar had planned to stage a romance with her prior to Bigg Boss, Minissha’s ‘BB mentor’ Pooja Bedi had attacked Dale on Twitter asking him to “get off her back” with a hash-tag of “dirtyPR”.
But in a turnaround of sorts Pooja is suddenly all sweet to the PR specialist. In a response to Dale’s tweet, she replied, “@DaleBhagwagar you’re a sweetie. I’m protective about my family & those I love… as everyone is, so no love lost from my end! Hugs #sweetiePR” (sic) When the publicist supported her over a tweet, she continued, “Thank u dale. A true gentleman & I’m touched.” (sic) When we asked Dale about Pooja’s U-turn, he remarked, “Pooja is a very nice person, but sometimes she gets all-fiery like a hoitytoity college student on Twitter. But I love all her public avatars as they are all entertaining.”
The publicist was all praise for Minissha too. “Minissha could have been more chirpy in Bigg Boss. She is also a gutsy and strong-minded person, but that side of hers didn’t exactly come out on the show, as she chose dignity over drama. I have come to respect her more for that,” said the publicist who has earlier handled the PR for her hit movie Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.
