What governs star prices in Bollywood? Do awards increase a star’s price?
Komal Nahta: In India, awards are not as significant as in Hollywood. Awards may be making an impact on the fees a star commands but only marginally. Otherwise, star prices are mostly governed by the laws of demand and supply.

What is more correct – an actor being selected by the demands of the story or an actor being fitted into a story?
Komal Nahta: Technically speaking, an actor should be selected on the basis of the demands of the script. But there have been instances of actors being fitted into a story and yet, the film has done extremely well at the box-office. At the end of the day, the actor should look believable in the character he is portraying.

To what do you attribute the bumper opening of Agneepath on Thursday (January 26) – the marketing, the trailers, the Chikni Chameli song or the Republic Day holiday?
Komal Nahta: To all the factors listed by you, but why are you forgetting other factors like brand Agneepath, Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt and the person behind the film, Karan Johar, who himself is a brand?

  1. Vijay bhai,why are you living in day dreams.Ra.One earned 125 crores nett in India and is a hit.It earned 10 million US$(50 crores) in overseas and is a superhit.Ra.One grossed 240 crores worldwide and it is the 2nd highest of all time.Don 2 earned 110 crores nett in India and is a hit.It earned 12 million US$(61 crores) in overseas and is a blockbuster.Don 2 grossed 220 crores worldwide and it is the 4th highest of all time.Shahrukh has won viewers choice awards in Screen And Apsara awards. He has won Best Actor(Jury) in Zee Cine awards.He also won the Koimoi polls with humongous margin.So check your facts before saying and if you do not want to accept reality then God bless you.

  2. Well said Rizwan bhai,these hate mongers will never acept reality.They started a negative campaign about Shahrukh.The following are the records made by Ra.One-Highest single day collection 25.1 crores,Highest 3 days collections 59.6 crores,Highest weekend collections(5 days) 91 crores,Highest single day collection in various circuits like Mumbai territory,Delhi/UP,East Punjab(first film to cross 2 crores in single day),Rajasthan,Mysore and West Bengal.Ra.One is a great film and it has put Indian films on the international platform.It is meant only for the educated class.All these hate mongers can do is to ridicule Shahrukh.Half the world knows who he is.He took challenge to work in the remake movies of two thespians Dilip and Amitabh i.e.Devdas and Don and emerged victoriousHis 8 Best Actor filmfare awards is a record which he shares with the master of acting Dilip Kumar.What an achievment.

  3. ‘sharukh khan is no.1 ‘ its an old story, now it’s many other SUPERSTARS, sharukh looks old now .every body knows that in india most of the bollywood awards are sold for money, sharukh agreed it many times,what he says in a humorous away is truth many times.sharukh’s last original hit was om shaanti om(farah). sharukh never looks manly,his fans agreed it,many girls says that they like sharuk because he looks more like a girl ,truely.
    if DON have AKSHAY KUMAR,AJAY DEVGN,SALMAN KHAN AS HERO IT WILL BE A MEGA HIT…. ONLY THEY CAN MATCH UPTO THE SUPERB MANLY AMITABH BACHCHAN. sharukh never can be the half successful of AMITABH in his 60 age. AMIT G SAID IT ALSO THAT IF COMPARISON NEEDED -DO IT WHEN SHARUK REACH HIS 60. THAT’S FARE WAY.
    SALMAN, AJAY DEVGN, AAMIR are greater than sharuk. most of the reputed actors, stars in bollywood not take awrds seriously.
    few people mind it because they want publicity any way and ver few are really deserve that awards. bollywood awards -50% for sale ; 25% people for who deserve it halfly ; 25% for real talent. the last two sections are to make people believe that these awards are honouring the best,all knows the superb tricks playing here.how many stars said it in public.
    AJAY DEVGN, SALMAN KHAN ,AAMIR KHAN all are superb success at box office: winning movie watchers’ hearts ………… yet no awards……………. smart people can understand it…… WHEN THESE REAL STARS WILL PART OF AWARDS ,THAT DAY THEY REALLY WILL MAKE WORTH AND STANDARD.
