Bollywood Blind Item – June 2019 – 5

There can be no other film that matches the below blind item other than this recently released superstar’s film. It doesn’t fully match the blind item, but it is about this film.

Though what the blind item is saying is not entirely wrong, it seems they made it up based on the news that this superstar was not OK with the length of this film. He asked the director to cut it, but the director refused hence he was kicked out of the superstar’s home. This was literally how the papers reported this!

So, this BI got it from this news and made up the whole blind item. The film has performed quite well and is his biggest opening yet. It might end its run as a 200 crore film at the box office as it’s slowly climbing up from 150 crore. The film’s budget is 100 crore so they have recovered their investment already.

Strangely, it has quite an average rating on IMDB. The movie is decent, better than expected but might be too long for his fans who are used to his style of films. This is a bit different, but not as different as the other film he did, which was a huge flop and disappointment to him.

Hats off to this director for daring to stand up against this superstar considering how it is also the superstar’s brother-in-law’s production.

Check out the blind item below from Mumbai Mirror. Have you seen the film yet?

A RECENTLY release that has opened to lukewarm to snooze reviews isn’t in the mood to go down in history as a damp squib. The makers are trying to salvage the film. We hear they had planned a re-edit, to shorten the film’s sonorous length down to a more acceptable size.

But then they were duly informed that a reedit meant they would have to submit to the Censor Board once again and ask for another certificate. Too much in the public eye, no? So now they have decided to let the film carve its own destiny, for better or worse.

    Obviously the budget of this movie is in 180-200 crore. Like obviously!
    They just said 100 crore so they have wiggle room to denote it a hit, people in the know know that its almost double that.

    I can’t wait till when this thug will haave no BO power. The time is slowly coming I tell you. Slowly and surely

      Bharati Pradhan (much as she is weird in her thinking) also indicated that the budget of Bharat is closer to 200 crores but they were touting it as 100 crores. Apparently, TV channels, Netflix and Amazon etc have revised their movie acquisition strategy, linking the price to box-office status. Hence the inflation of box-office profits, and deflation of production costs.

        Are you referring to the Bharti Pradhan article titled “Dear priyanka, you made the right choice: stepping out of Bharat to devote time to your wedding was a smart move”? Oh yeah that sounded real objective and unbiased and not at all like a PR piece!!!
        But one has to give it to PC and her PR on how to make everything about her, flip every argument in her favor like turning an unprofessional behavior of opting out of a movie 5 days before your schedule starts you had once lobbied for into a feminist act. Bravo

          Niki, She did call Priyanka out for her unprofessional behavior. But here’s the thing, there is no way any of the big release Khan movies will cost in the 100 crore range. That’s what SOTY and De De Pyaar De cost. Bharat was always rumored to be in the 180-200 crore range.

          Also, I completely agree SOTY and Kalank are colossal failures, and Kjo and gang are jealous of Salman’s stardom that can ensure an amazing opening for even Race 3, Tubelight, and Bharat. But it doesn’t take away from the fact that these were bad movies.

            I don’t know if you have inside sources on the budget or are you just coming up with arbitrary figures so I will not argue with you on this issue any further but what I can say having seen the movie that its a good movie IMHO, Salman’s best since Bajrangi Bhaijaan and it promotes peace and brotherhood at a time when Bollywood is churning out hate filled propaganda movies and I am seeing a lot of vested interest specially from the Akki and KJO gang trying to bring down this movie with the help of his minions in media. This is my honest opinion about the controversy surrounding this movie, peace out.

    Bahubali 2’s budget was 200 crore. Do you guys who are claiming Bharat having a budget of 200+ cr really believe that Bharat cost more money to make than a movie like Bahubali. First people were calling Bharat a flop then an underperformer and now when its on its way to collect 200 cr at box office these people have decided to inflate its budget. Some people will just go to any length to discredit actors they don’t like even if it means abandoning common sense and believing a slimy person like KRK who till yesterday was singing in praises for a movie like Kalank in exchange of money from Dharma Productions.

      Bahubali was shot in two parts, with a total budget of 430 crores, of which part 2’s share was 250 crores. Yes, we are saying Bahubali productions costs were on par with Bharat, because the former’s production was more frugal. Example: Bahubali was shot extensively within India, on one huge set that served both parts, where the producer/director and his family actually moved in and lived – Rajamouli’s Dad (writer), Cousin (music director), Wife (costume designer) and Son (unit director/line producer) slogged together as a family, and the actors didn’t overcharge. Prabhas gave the movie almost 5 complete years, to ensure there were no interruptions.

      Bharat was shot abroad extensively, and except for taking production credit Salman’s family didn’t add anything to it, and it had multiple popular actors (Disha, Tabu, Jacky, Sonali) in minuscule roles. Salman’s family does not know how to get the most value for the least input. Instead, they will cut costs by hiring substandard music directors, costume designers, and small time actors. It all adds up to bad production values at high prices.

        So outdoor shoots makes a movie’s budget 200cr? It was shot in Abu Dhabi which gives 30% rebate on film production in their country reason why so many movies recently has been shot there like Baby, TZH, Saaho, MI:Fallout and FYI my source is Financial Times not slimeballs or PR mouthpieces like KRK or Bharti Pradhan.
        Like I said in my earlier comment people were wishing it to be a flop and when it didn’t they gradually started to increase the budget from 100cr at first then 150 cr when the movie crossed 150cr at box office and now when its on verge of collecting 200 cr by the end of the week the budget has become 200cr and I am sure when Bharat will cross 200 cr at box office a new budget will appear before us at 250 cr or 300 cr.

          Dear God, Niki, please go ahead and believe whatever you want to believe. If you think flying out entire production units of actors, technicians, dancers, artists, and production equipment, building sets, and housing all of them abroad (even with a rebate) is cheaper than doing it in one go in India, practically next door, with free market prices for local skillset, please go ahead and believe it. Funny though, you seemed to have completely ignored how much Rajamouli’s family contributed to ensuring most work was also shouldered by his family members themselves.

          Also FYI, TZH budget was $210 crores. Baby was less because Akshay charges per day of shooting – huge incentive for producers to wrap up fast and run a tight ship. Saaho budget is $300 crores.

    kjo and his minions are burning with jealously and so they are releasing such stuff.Bharat does not have a wow factor, but bharat is far better than soty2 and kalank, it is still a bit too long.Most of the Ratings/critics/press reviews are now a days paid by kjo, so they are trying to get the movie down, but he could not save his own movies. Credibility has reduced. Their logic is simple. if their movies could not rise, then try harder to bring others’ movies down. Tweet flattery done by them is all fake.

    But Srk pushed out a reedited version of Zero After the original one was already running in theaters? And there was no new censor certification. If Srk can why should that be a problem for “bhai”?
    Anyways anyone else finds funny how Pcs PR made this entire film about her? They’re now even saying that she rejected the film. Contrary to Salman who stated she specifically asked to be casted. Her PR plays very Unfair and dirty. Pushing her bad behavior as some feminist movement in hindi cinema… Lol. Being an a** has nothing to do with feminism.
