Golmaal 3 has come in at 62.30 crore nett for week one due to the mind boggling collections in Mumbai circuit. A Raajneeti gave 12.25 crore in Delhi/UP and 20.75 crore in Mumbai. Dabangg gave 19.25 crore in Delhi/UP and 27.75 crore in Mumbai but Golmaal has a ratio between Mumbai and Delhi/UP which has never been seen before for a big film in that Mumbai is 30.50 crore and Delhi/UP is 10 crore.
Mumbai/Thane – 12.25 crore
Gujarat – 10.13 crore (Record)
Saurashtra – 2.15 crore (Record)
Maharashtra – 5.11 crore
N Karnataka/Goa – 98 lakhs

GOLMAAL 3 2ND WEEK STARTS ON A STRONG NOTE
Golmaal 3 recorded very good collections of around 4.75 crore nett on its second Friday. The film dropped in Mumbai but it had to happen as the first week in Mumbai circuit was earth shattering. The first week in Mumbai looks like being higher than the first week of Dabangg and the second biggest ever after 3 Idiots.
Golmaal 3 had a drop on Wednesday as collections in Mumbai dropped but settled again and is showing similar daily collections for last few days and today Saturday should be stronger. The weekend could bring in another 18 crore nett plus which would be another huge figure.
The film has very good chances to hit the 100 crore nett mark if collections hold up as they are doing at the present time.

The late 90s witnessed a trend when the lead actors got almost synonymous with the production companies that made their films. Leading the gang was today’s Dabangg man Salman Khan, without whose name, Rajshri Films’ were incomplete. Then, came a period in early 2000, when films started getting made without Sallu’s presence, which set many a tongues wagging about an alleged rift between the Barjatyas and Salman.
But, the following news will surely act as a fitting reply to all those wagging tongues. The news is that Salman is all set to be back in Rajshri production. The film in question is Vidhi Kasliwal’s directorial venture. Isi Life Mein. Apparently, it is said that Salman will be doing a cameo in the film, thanks to none other than Sooraj Barjatya. Confirming this news, Bollywood Hungama’s source close to the production house said, “Yes, Salman is doing the film Isi Life Mein; however it’s only a cameo role that he will essay in it.”
The film, which is being produced by Kamal Kumar Barjatya, Rajkumar Barjatya and Ajit Kumar Barjatya stars Akshay Oberoi and Sandeepa Dhar in lead roles.
The film is about the lives of two teenagers in today’s world and their belief that one not only has the right to dream but also the capability to accomplish all their dreams.
Salman Khan allegedly had differences with Abhinav Kashyap while Dabangg was being made. Arbaaz Khan or Sohail Khan may now direct the sequel
After setting the cash registers ringing at the box office, Dabangg has now become one of the biggest successes of the year. In fact, the film has marginally broken the record Aamir Khan’s Ghajini had set.
However, Abhinav Kashyap may not be a part of Dabangg 2. Kashyap who made his debut as a director with Dabangg rose to fame in no time. But apparently, Arbaaz Khan or Sohail Khan will direct the sequel.
The sudden change has come as a shock to many in the industry. Grapevine has it that Salman Khan did not particularly enjoy his stint with Abhinav in the director’s seat.
Our source said, “All is not well between Abhinav and Salman. The actor and the director had some tiffs during the shooting of Dabangg. This has resulted in certain very crucial roles being altered at the last moment. Abhinav will not be a part of the sequel of the film.
While most of the cast remains the same the only major change will be the director. The sequel has already been announced. It will be titled Rohinhood Chulbul Pandey, with Salman, Sonakshi, Arbaaz and Sonu Sood definitely as a part of it.”
Apparently, after several tiffs with Abhinav, Salman Khan made it a point to sit at the edit of Dabangg.
At that stage, Sallu even took help from his trustworthy friend David Dhawan. It was only when Salman was happy with the final cut that the film was released.
Mumbai Mirror had also reported some time ago that Abhinav Kashyap had started demanding very high remuneration from production houses, after the success of Dabangg.
The debutant director was severely criticised in the industry for this attitude and he may have lost out on the sequel for this reason too.
Abhinav on the other hand has moved on and has apparently signed a film with Shri Ashtavinayak Cine Vision that may star Akshay Kumar in the lead role. Arbaaz Khan however said, “As of now, there’s nothing like this.”

Bollywood is full of surprises. Samir Karnik is going through a rough patch. Ditto for Deols, especially Sunny and Bobby Deol, who haven’t tasted success for a while now. But the promo of Karnik’s YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA, starring Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby Deol, which was launched last week, has been received exceptionally well by viewers across the globe.
What’s interesting is that people on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, who are really hard to please when it comes to Hindi movies, have reacted very, very strongly to the first promo of YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA, showering lavish praises on message boards/FB status/tweets. This faction of cinegoers had reacted similarly to DABANGG sometime back and with YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA winning unanimous praise, one expects the film to live up to the expectations when it releases in January 2011.
The actor will supposedly return to host the next season of Dus Ka Dum on the condition that he is paid Rs 2.5 crore per episode
On October 30, Mumbai Mirror broke the news that Salman Khan will be back in Dus Ka Dum, on his own conditions. Here’s the latest on that.
According to a source, the actor apparently told the channel that he will return to the show only if he is paid Rs 2.5 crore per episode.
That is approximately a 51 per cent hike on what he was paid for the first and second seasons of Dus Ka Dum, the source tells us, “Salman was being paid approximately Rs 1.65 crore per episode then.”
But according to reports in the media, hadn’t Salman charged only Rs 89 crore for the 104 episodes that were telecast in the first season of Dus Ka Dum? Adds the source, “No. That was a conservative figure portrayed in the media.”
According to insiders from the television industry when Salman was signed up for the first season of Dus Ka Dum, he charged Rs 89 crore for 104 episodes. And for the second season of the show, the actor had reportedly asked for a decent increment of Rs 44 crore. However, that did not materialise. Then, Salman slashed his fee for the second season after the channel admitted to a cash crunch as a result of the economic recession.
Well, seemingly, the recession is truly over for Sallu. Wonder if the mammoth success of Dabangg has had a role to play?
It will be interesting to note here that Salman’s new fee in Dus Ka Dum 3 is apparently even more than what he is presently getting for Bigg Boss 4. According to a senior person from the TV industry, “Salman is being paid about Rs 2 crore per episode for Bigg Boss 4. And that’s a package deal, which involves public appearances and a lot of other things. However, if you calculate it per episode, it is about Rs 2 crore per episode.”
Grapevine has it that a lot of efforts were made to get a replacement for Salman in Dus Ka Dum but all in vain. Adds the source, “This steep hike indicates only two things.
Channel ko koi sahi replacement nahi mila and that Salman’s connect with the audience is immense.
The same is happening in Bigg Boss 4. While the inmates of Bigg Boss 4 are not too exciting to watch, the viewership has shot up on Fridays and Saturdays because those are the days when Salman makes an appearance on the show.”
Guess it all adds up to a brilliant score. Advantage: Salman.
The Bollywood superstar’s Bodyguard has reportedly been lapped up for Rs 62 crores
Meena Iyer | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; November 6, 2010)
Dabangg, that opened to an unprecedented release in September, has pushed Salman Khan on top of the charts. The only other Khan who is higher than him at this point is Aamir (courtesy 3 Idiots). Naturally, now the market is watching every move (or should that read, every movie) that Salman is making, announcing or even suggesting.
His next release will be Anees Bazmee’s Ready that is expected in April 2011. However, the first film to get the benefit of the Dabangg super success is his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri’s Bodyguard that has Salman and Kareena Kapoor in the lead.
The film is expected to go on the floors on January 16, and is expected to release on Eid (a Salman speciality) on August 29, 2011. Anil Ambani’s company has reportedly paid Rs 62 crores for the rights of this film. Says a trade source, “Since Salman hit a purple patch with Dabangg, his movies are attracting huge prices.” The market source also says that Bollywood that had decided not to acquire films for exorbitant prices is actually going back on its word.
“After the debacle of Kites and Raavan, you would have thought that people learned a lesson,” the source says. “However, the market is currently looking good. And big hero films are back to being bought, sold and resold for some unheard of prices. Yes, this Diwali the gold rush is on.”

Post the success of Dabangg, Salman Khan has become a hot property in Bollywood. No wonder then that all the directors and producers are lining up to sign the star for their films.
The latest news is that Salman Khan has been signed up by Ramesh Taurani for his next venture. However, Taurani states, “Actually, we had signed Salman much before Dabangg, for the remake of Amar Akbar Anthony.”
However, the plans to remake Amar Akbar Anthony have been dropped and now Taurani wants to start a new project with the star. Says Ramesh Taurani, “Since we already have Salman on board, we have decided to make a totally different film. The film will be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi and we have already locked the script.”
As for the details regarding the cast and of the yet untitled venture, Taurani says, “Though we have already locked the script, we are yet to finalise on the rest of the cast. The film will go floor only next year. Apart from this, I cannot say much now as it’s still too early.”
Well, let’s hope that Sallu who is currently enjoying a high phase in his career continues with it through next year as well.
Why are actresses, some even close with the family, shying away from item numbers, despite the success of Munni badnaam hui?
When Munni aka Malaika Arora Khan, rangeeli Urmila Matondkar and apro Amisha Patel refused to gyrate with the Deols (Sunny, Bobby and Dharam Paaji) in Samir Karnik’s next, Yamla Pagla Deewana, Mahek Chahal accepted the offer. Who? The girl who did an item number with Salman Khan in Wanted.
In fact, for a brief period, Mahek was linked with Salman. And soon after, she apparently vamoosed to Norway.

Mahek has now returned in all her glory to do an item number with the Deols in Samir Karnik’s forthcoming film Yamla Pagla Deewana. And mind you, she was flown all the way from Norway for this. Desperation? Perhaps she was actually ‘wanted’.
Incidentally, the item number that has been choreographed by Caesar (of the Bosco-Caesar jodi), has been sung by Mamta Sharma, who sang Munni badnaam hui in Dabangg. It’s obviously not a surprise that the Yamla… team were very keen to have Mallaika shimmy for the item number but reportedly she no longer wants to item numbers for any film that is not under her home banner.
We were hoping to watch you act as well, Mallaika, but oh well…
When contacted however, Karnik said “Mahek was always the first choice for the item number in Yamla Pagla Deewana.”
When asked if Urmila, Mallaika and Amisha were offered the part or not, he added, “No, nothing like that.”
Well, in that case, what Amisha told us may come as a surprise to you, Karnik. The actress confirmed the story and said, “I was offered this song. I did not refuse it. I was in Manali, busy shooting. I requested the producers to adjust my dates but they couldn’t, as they were on a very tight schedule. I would love to work with the Deols any day, anytime.” There’s always a next time girl; look at Mahek, for instance.

If there is one guy out there in the entertainment industry who can put an end to all the speculation on the status of the Salman-Govinda relationship, it is David Dhawan.
David who has been closely associated with both Salman and Govinda, has done the maximum number of films with the two stars. He’s now in the process of bringing them together for the sequel to Partner.
But the problem is with the stories about the Partners‘ real-life rift. They are taking a toll on David. And he has decided to do something about the crisis. He is toying with the idea of hosting a party to celebrate the Salman-Govinda friendship.
“And why just the Salman-Govinda friendship? It will be to celebrate the Salman-Govinda-David friendship. I get very disturbed when I hear about their so-called rift. Arrey yaar, both are far above such bickering. Look at Govinda’s track-record. He has been at the top for decades. As for Salman, with Dabangg he has proved he is beyond all competition. I hate to see people talking about two of my closest friends in this negative way. So yes a party celebrating Salman and Govinda’s friendship and my friendship with them seems a good idea,” says David emotionally.
Says David, “I’m committed to direct a film Rascals for Sanjay Dutt Productions from next month. Dutt is one of my oldest and closest friends. The first film I directed had Sanju in it. Then I’m committed to directing Partner 2 for Salman Khan and Govinda. So my career is devoted to friends.”
Family would naturally have to look elsewhere. David’s younger son Varun is being launched as a leading man by Karan Johar.
Says David, “All I can tell you at the moment is that my elder son Rohit is directing his first film Desi Boyz and my younger son Varun is going to be an actor. I’d have liked to launch both in their respective careers. But I am committed to making films with my friends.”
Rascals will feature Dutt, who is one of David’s oldest and dearest friends, with Ajay Devgn and Kangna Ranaut. It will be a typical David Dhawan comedy.
Argues David, “Why not? Why open the car bonnet to check the motor when the vehicle is running just fine? When others are copying my style why should I move away from it?”
Barely a month after Dabangg, its director is demanding unbelievably high remuneration from producers
Agreed, Dabangg was received quite well at the Box Office but it seems director, Abhinav Kashyap has taken it rather too well.
The director has got too big for his boots. While still basking in the Dabangg glory, Abhinav has already started visiting corporate house offices and demanding huge amounts of directorial remuneration. The entire industry is at a loss for words.
A few days ago, Abhinav demanded Rs 10 crore plus from Eros International while negotiating for a film. Says a source, “The Eros International officials were flabbergasted. They had their share of talks, but nothing materialised in the end. In other words, they showed him (Abhinav) the door.”
A few days later, we hear, he had a meeting with PVR. A source reveals, “There, Abhinav demanded an amount between Rs 15 and 18 crore. The PVR officials were as shocked as the Eros International ones, if not more. Nothing happened for Abhinav there either.”
Says a leading distributor (name withheld on request), “You may have made Dabangg but you certainly don’t deserve more than Rs 4 crore, Mr Abhinav Kashyap. Maximum Rs 4.5 crore.
He should not forget that Dabangg chal toh gayi, but it had many loopholes. Moreover, you can’t demand Rs 15 crores for directing a film when you have a track record of just one successful film.”
When contacted, Abhinav did not deny that he had met Eros International and PVR after the release of Dabangg. “I haven’t finalised anything on my next project as yet.
But why only Eros International and PVR? I have met up with the whole world. I met Fox, UTV, Disney and Ashtavinayak too.”
On being questioned about the remuneration Abhinav has been asking for, he said, “This is a very personal thing. It’s not for public consumption.” Eros and PVR might say the same about their money, Abhinav!
