KIS KISKO PYAAR KAROON collections to cross Rs 50 crore!! So is Kapil Sharma the new Superstar of Bollywood?

With standup comedian Kapil Sharma's debut film KIS KISKO PYAAR KAROON set to cross the elusive Rs 50 crore mark at the worldwide box office, it looks evident Kapil Sharma is here to stay! 

According to traded reports KIS KISKO PYAAR KAROON made on a shoe string budget has broken all office records. The movie has earned Rs 37.12 crore from Indian markets, while from the overseas box office it has minted Rs 7.92 crore, thus taking its worldwide total to Rs 45.04 crore. 

Trade pundits predict the movie may cross the Rs 50 crore mark as it is still doing brisk business at the box-office.

Kapil Sharma who is already a rage thanks to his hugely popular TV show COMEDY NIGHTS WITH KAPIL is himself surprised at the superlative success of his film. He has thanked his fans for the movie’s overwhelming response. 

After the success of the film, speculations are being made that will Kapil Sharma prove the dark horse and race ahead of his contemporary stars like Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor! 

The fact is even Salman Khan’s much publicized film HERO introducing Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty could manage to garner only Rs 6.85 crore on first Friday (11 September). While Kapil Sharma’s KIS KISKO PYAAR KAROON, despite no star attraction and negligible publicity minted Rs 8 crore on its first Friday which is a record opening for any film starring a debutante actor!!! 

The bumper opening thus proves it was the star appeal of Kapil Sharma that did the trick. So is Kapil Sharma the new Superstar? 

Well it may be too early to comment but trade pundits reveal that among the debutant actors Kapli Sharma is only actor who has the inimitable X factor that can work in his favor!

Why Vijay’s PULI may conquer over Akshay Kumar’s SINGH IS BLIING

With Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar’s SINGH IS BLIING and South Superstar Vijay’s PULI sets to clash on October 1 speculations are high which movie will take the cake. 

Though the trade analyst believe that since both the films are having the advantage of a long weekend vacation hence both may do good business but on a closer examination it appears Vijay’s PULI has an edge over Akshay Kumar’s SINGH IS BLIING due to many reasons. 

First and foremost after the mega success of BAAHUBALI - THE BEGINNING, the demand for fantasy-adventure has increased. Since PULI is being publicized as the most expensive fantasy-adventure movie ever made in India there is definitely a fanatical craze to watch the movie.

As the movie is dubbed in Hindi and being released simultaneously hence it has the advantage of clicking in the North India too and can give a tough fight to Akshay Kumar’s SINGH IS BLIING as BAAHUBALI - THE BEGINNING gave a tough fight to Salman Khan’s BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN! 

Secondly the movie’s trailer has generated a huge buzz on social media thanks to its appealing cinematography and special effects displaying it’s amazing costumes, weird castles, flying multi coloured angry bird, ogres, one eyed monsters, a giant turtle and much more enticing film buffs to watch the movie. 

And last but not the least Superstar Vijay is doing a fantasy adventure for the first time and yesteryear top star Sridevi is making her comeback in Tamil cinema after over 30 years! 

Besides PULI’s outstanding background score with the mystic drum rolls around Sridevi who plays a witch in the film has already became a rage. 

In contrast Akshay Kumar’s SINGH IS BLIING has nothing new to offer. It has the same background of Punjabi culture and the typical song and comedy, which the audience has seen a millions of times. 

Thus in nutshell PULI is likely to draw unprecedented rush at the box office and will surely win the race… 

Nevertheless SINGH IS BLIING too might not be a disappointment either because, in case of over flow of crowds at PULI, the surplus may drift to SINGH IS BLIING!

Is Vijay starrer PULI financed by the outlaw? Will the movie’s release be affected??

It is a well known fact that the Indian film industry is backed by usurious funds that are usually financed by the outlaw due to lack of corporate backing in India. However the Income Tax department keeps a ‘Hawk Eye’ on such film producers and try to curb the thriving of outlaw finance in the film industry. 

Despite the law, it is a tragedy that film producers, particularly the Tamil film producers, continue to rely on illegitimate finance. 

The latest producers who have become target of the IT department for employing usurious funds for film production are Shibu Thameens and PT Selvakumar, who are suspected by the IT department to have used illegitimate investments for producing their Magnum Opus Tamil movie PULI, touted as the most expensive of movie of Indian Cinema!

Alarmed at the irregularities in the funds of the movie the IT department on Wednesday morning conducted raids not only the film producers Shibu Thameens and PT Selvakumar but also raided popular South Superstar’s Vijay’s house, office and other properties. It may be noted Vijay is the hero of PULI that also stars Sridevi. 

Reports claim houses of other actors like Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nayantara were raided simultaneously. 

When contacted an income tax official, on condition of anonymity confirmed that the raids were conducted following startling revelations in the accounting of the movie PULI.

“Yes it is true that the IT department has conducted raids at as many as 32 places in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. We have detected that a lot of investments in movie Puli are not explained," he confided. 

The movie PULI is slated to be released on Thursday October 1, hope the raids do not pose problem to the release of the movie as movie buffs are going hysterical to watch the film!
