Dilwale A Wakeup Call for Shahrukh Khan

The trade went into shock when it was disclosed that Bajirao Mastani has collected more money at the India box office than Dilwale on Monday, the fourth day after the release.

Everyone in the trade thought that Dilwale will crush Bajirao Mastani because it looks like a festival entertainer. The tide completely turned when Bajirao Mastani took a big lead over Dilwale on Christmas holiday in India and the lead was consolidated on Saturday as well as Sunday. It is very clear now that Bajirao Mastani's lifetime collections in India will be more than Dilwale

According to a report published in Bollywood Hungama, Shah Rukh should have worked on a better product before clashing with Bajirao Mastani which had announced the release date long ago. The Red Chillies team must have thought that Eros will back out and they may get a solo release but Eros had a lot of belief in their film even though it wasn't supported by as big a star cast as Dilwale. The belief of Eros has worked in their favour. Though we can say that Dilwale has been affected to some extent by the protests by political parties but the fact is that the mixed public opinion is harming it more. On the contrary the word of Bajirao Mastani is much more positive than Dilwale.

People from within Bollywood are saying that Shah Rukh Khan needs to reinvent himself now. He has been doing the same sort of films and is taking less risks. Happy New Year and Dilwale are only trying to take advantage of SRK's stardom and they are not doing anything new. While Aamir Khan always comes up with new concepts, even Salman Khan surprised everyone with Bajrangi Bhaijaan this year. Senior Trade pundits feel that it would be wise if SRK's Raees shouldn't clash with Salman Khan's Sultan on Eid. The business will get divided again and if SRK loses that battle it will hurt his reputation badly.

Shah Rukh Khan is having nice looking projects like Fan and Raees. They shall help him express differently but they don't look like big money making ventures. He is a big star with great fan following but he has yet not come close to entering Rs 300 crore club. It is time for SRK to think about his future plans and do films which are critically and commercially successful.

  1. Comment:abey everyone know its negativity spread by u all not movie ...tell me why you give it 3.5 star when hou know it is bad? and also bajirao 3.5 mad people (dogle log)
    stop this nonsense he was superstar he is and he will you can't decide abt his future okay biggest crap site of world while Forbes guardian taran adarsh praising for his worldwide fan following than these shit lile indians trying to let him down ... how ridiculous aite it is ...there only 3 living legend dilip kumar amitabh srk
    forbes bbc guardian world's biggest superstar
    world's 2nd richest actor
    only indian to get unesco award for charity
    edinburg howard iim unlimited universities invites him only because his talking humor is beyond hour thoughts
    when pm goes to germany people was saying see srk's country pm
    france pm obama shakira zayn .. Cameron(avatar and titanic directorl) for them srk is india
    u can watch cameron interview
    x men director wants to work with him ....
    only you nonsense indian wants to wake him up ....whats wrong with you?

  2. Comment: then why are you saying wake up call?
    he dont need your site wake up call go get a life bollyarena

  3. dilip kumar never get a 20 cr
    amitabh never get a 50 cr ( in his era)
    while srk broke highest earning movie record 2 time ...he don't need to express himself anymore bubye go and drink a cold drink ?? haters

  4. still i don't get why you gave similar ratings to dilwale and bm ??
    3.5 for dilwale?? when you dont like it
    kyu behti ganga me hath dho rahe ho shahab ye jo chadha rahe hai kal galiya bhi denge
    aur jo kuch views milte hai site ko wo bhi chale jayenge apne kam se kam rakho na jo kam hai wo karo site ka kyu krk ki tarh cheap bate karte ho ...

  5. Films success and fall will always be their ... one film down & bolly arena writers r writing off srk or giving sugestions based on just one film performing down where as same movie is major major hit overseas so here reasons were different
    1) it classed with bm so got divided lost atlist 35 to 45 crore business which was going to happen .
    2) political issues and due to which negative message were to boycott movie ..due to bm was more appreciated as srk hatters got opportunity. Which losy approx 30 crores
    3) english movie release: dilwale was sustaining well and also facing difficulties with bm ..and this english movie was released did bal. Damage reducing dilwale screens to 50% less .. which lost approx 25 crores

    Dilwale still going to do 145 crores.. so if addded above 40+30+25 total 95 crores loss due to above reasons + 145 current estimated businesw so total would have reached 245 crores approx...

    So boĺly arrena team calculate before u give statements .ny above figures may varry by 10% + or - but dilwale would touched his figures if it had solo release like dhoom 3 or pk

  6. Good article.....Thanks bollywood arena for the good article.
    From 2007, Aamir and Salman leading while media hyped SRK is lowest to Salman and Aamir.
    Fact is SRK stardom is loosing from 2010 as there is Salmania going strong and Aamir giving ATBB.
    JTHJ classed with SOS, result SOS is clean winner where as JTHJ loosed, it was expected to do 180 crores.
    HNY was a crap film, Chennai express was also not much good film then Dilwale is boring film.


  8. Frustrated srk fool fans, SRK is famous in Germany bcz he is the only actor in bollywood who goes on WORLD TOUR for the promotion of his films. and he was in Germany for OSO promotion that's why some people of Germany knows him. Who said you that in germany people said that PM comes from SRK's country is he/she was ur frnd ? or you know that by Magic just Like Red Chillies Entertainment do magics on Box office collection.

  9. Bollyarena is my favorite bollybood site since I came here in july-aug .. You guys are doing great job ,.but I have a problem, I don't see any pic here . I use uc browser.. is there any problem with uc browser whereas other browsers are showing pics

  10. Srk ka time is gone bole to Tata.n I request him plz change his Mind for Releasing Raeez with SULTAN otherwise he will became Bhikhari n SRK ka Fan logka Sa sa sa Sahmoyik Balat ( Chamat )kar ho jayega... Or in logo ka mu pura kal ho jayega. .Thanks Bollyarena with fantastic thinking...
