This man suffers Rs 60 crore loss, thanks to Shah Rukh and Salman
We all are aware of the box office failure that Bollywood films are facing of late. Not just the small-budget films, but even big banner films are facing the test of time. The situation seems to be so bad that even the Khans are unable to sustain themselves at the box office.
Salman Khan‘s ‘Tubelight’ that made it to the theatres in the month of June proved to be a dud at the box office. Despite the amazing buzz, this film failed to attract the masses to the theatres. The box office collection of this Kabir Khan directorial surprised one and all and especially after gauging the success of Salman’s last film ‘Sultan’, ‘Tubelight’ was not even close to its one week collection. Following this, Shah Rukh Khan‘s recent release ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ met the same fate as that of ‘Tubelight’. The SRK and Anushka Sharma film failed to mint money at the box office with their romantic saga and hence the horrible collection.

Well, our eyes pop as we read about the news of these two films meeting such an end, but there’s one man who has actually suffered much more than we can imagine. Distributor Narendra Hirawat of NH Studioz has apparently suffered a loss of Rs 60 crore due to the poor performance of these two films. At least for ‘Tubelight’, there is still some hope as Salim Khan has promised to compensate for all the loss. But while talking to Mid-Day, Hirawat states that he is yet to receive the money. He was quoted saying, “We haven’t received any money from Salman Khan. All these reports about distributors receiving money, are false.”
However, he hasn’t lost hopes. “The movie has not lived up to the expectations, because of which we have suffered a huge loss. Like Salman, I have worked with Shah Rukh in the past too. He is a nice person. I hope we get some kind of compensation for ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ too, but it is all up to them [the producers]. As of now, there hasn’t been any word on it,” he quipped further.
Ranbir Kapoor: I suffer from anxiety issues after finishing a film
Mental illness is still not considered as a sickness and people shy away from discussion about it. No, when you suffer from some mental disease you are crazy or mad, it is as normal as a physical sickness. Our society is easily influenced by famous personalities and sometimes people also follow them blindly. So when Bollywood actors come in the open and talk about suffering from depression or any other mental illness, people become aware about it and somewhere start considering it as a serious problem.
Recently, Ranbir Kapoor, who is gearing up for the release of ‘Sanju’ has confessed that he is suffering from anxiety issues. Ranbir has been busy with the promotion of his upcoming film which is a biopic on Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt. He has been giving multiple interviews and has shared some fantastic stories about his life, personal and professional.

In one such interview with film critic Anupama Chopra before the release of ‘Sanju’, Ranbir shared about what he goes through before and after the release of the film. He said, “I suffer from anxiety issues after finishing a film and before the film hits theatres. It has happened with every one of my films.”
This is an important point to note for all those people who thought that the film industry is all about glam and fame. The harsh reality is, there is stress and pressure even here and the biggest of stars suffer from mental illness. In the past, Deepika Padukone, Ileana D’Cruz have also openly spoken about battling depression, and we are glad they did.
Ranbir’s upcoming film, ‘Sanju’ also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Karishma Tanna, Boman Irani and others. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani the film will release on June 29.

Now isn’t that the cutest wish a father could have wished for his son? We wish Linga a very Happy Birthday.
On the professional front, Dhanush is gearing up for two Tamil films. One is gangster drama ‘Vada Chennai’ and the other is ‘Maari 2’ which is scheduled to release by the year-end.
Dhanush had made his Bollywood debut with Aanand L Rai’s ‘Raanjhanaa’ opposite Sonam Kapoor and was last seen in R Balki’s satirical drama ‘Shamitabh‘ alongside Amitabh Bachchan. We wonder when the actor will be seen in a Hindi film again.
