Every time a Khan film is about to release, cinema halls are willing to give them as many shows as possible to maximise revenue. In 2014, Salman Khan's Kick released in 4700 screens while SRK's Happy New Year managed 5000 screens on the first weekend. With PK, however, Aamir Khan is looking to conquer 5200 screens.
With the award season coming up, the battle to be the best reaches its zenith. Shahid Kapoor's Haider has been nominated in the Best Film category along with Bang Bang, Happy New Year, Kick and Ek Villain. Also actors Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Ajay Devgn and Shahid Kapoor are contenders of the 'Star of the Year' award.
Superstar Salman Khan, who will be seen in Sooraj Barjatya's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo will reportedly go on a world tour to promote the film in different countries. Director Sooraj Barjatya's films are a major hit among NRI community abroad and the production house wants to bank upon it, especially after actor Shah Rukh Khan's SLAM! The Tour was successful in promoting Happy New Year on a massive scale.
Veteran actress Jaya Bachchan's comment that actor Shah Rukh Khan's latest film Happy New Year is 'nonsensical' has reportedly annoyed the actor. Actress Sonam Kapoor has been reportedly roped in for Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming venture Raees. Meanwhile, according to reports, Katrina Kaif visited her alleged beau Ranbir Kapoor's house to check on his father, actor Rishi Kapoor, who is down with malaria and dengue. Actor Ali Zafar says that his Kill Dil co-star Parineeti Chopra is hot and sensual rather than 'bubbly' in the upcoming crime drama film.
