Rohit Dhawan’s Desi Boyz shows the two heroes, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham, resorting to the oldest profession to make money. Do you think, the Indian audience is ready to accept heroes playing male escorts?

Komal Nahta: Akshay Kumar and John Abraham play male escorts in Desi Boyz only a few reels of the film – and for a reason. Those who’ve seen the film feel, those scenes have been handled carefully so as not to hurt the audience’s sensibilities.

Desi Boyz ,Rockstar
Probably no producer wanted to be sandwiched between Desi Boyz & Rockstar.

Will Eros cover its investment in Rockstar?

Komal Nahta: Eros may well cover its cost in Rockstar but the additional money Shree Ashtavinayak spent (over and above the budget) may not be recovered because collections have dropped dramatically.

Why did no big film release last week?

Komal Nahta: Probably, no big producer wanted to be sandwiched between Rockstar (two weeks ago) and Desi Boyz (of this week)!

Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One: Profit & Loss Account




  1. If Shahrukh Khan can press Kreena’s breasts so openly in Ra.One, if Shahrukh and his son (in Ra.One) can say the words ‘condom – condom’, if kareena can say ‘teri maa ki…’, teri behen ki…’ in Ra.One and still many indian sentiments were not hurt… then why only playing a role of male escort will hurt? its nothing in front of Ra.One’s pornographic drama on family festival like Diwali….!!! What SRK said b4 the release of Ra.One? Every father and son should watch Ra.One together??? what he actually wants?? To ruin the parents and childrens relation?? or he wants to ruin indian culture??? shame…. shame… shame!!!

  2. Again they r fooling us . Desi Boyz will too be a disappointment , Have u not learned from recent movies like rascals , Ra -one , kambakkt ishq Etc , it has same childish loud comedy , no story line . it tries to attracts as many people to come to theater at first week , through marketing fundas like publicity stunts ,appearing in shows to promote movies ( like appearing in big boss ) , attending news interview , they will try much hard do do marketing (promoting) rather than making good movie . and get same reaction from people “arey movie bekaar thi” paisey waste , and collections fall from next week .The me is here ,but they recover cost in first week by all these promotions (fooling people ,same like telemarketing huge claims )Same is with Desi boys ,hyped ,promoted , marketed to recover money , no money for script , dialog ,story and quality ” “
