Was Saif Ali Khan’s alleged assault on two NRIs a publicity stunt for his due-for-release Agent Vinod?
Komal Nahta: Nobody takes law into his hands to promote a film. The way the media presents such stories, it makes it appear as if every single action of a star at the time of release of his film is aimed at promoting his film. That’s quite a ridiculous presumption!
Will Ritesh Deshmukh and Genelia D’souza’s recent marriage harm or help the box-office prospects of Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya released this week?
Komal Nahta: The marriage may not have any impact on the box-office prospects of their film Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya. If it does have some impact, it will be positive, not negative.
Will the half-hearted industry bandh of 23rd February serve any purpose, especially in view of the fact that it was not total?
Komal Nahta: Not really! Only a total bandh would’ve given the government a feeling of unity in the film industry. And unity is a must to force the government to give relief. Still, let us keep our fingers crossed and hope that the government does not levy sales tax on film transactions.
