The trio of Shyam Goel, M. Salim, Amol Shetge has written the script of the movie. The film is slated to release some time in February but no exact date has been announced yet.

Profession wise Rahul happens to be a DJ whose philosophy is that Hindustaniyat does not lie in wearing the clothes as per the country’s demands or speak the language that comes straight from the heart. He says that the ones who are clad with jeans and T-Shirts cannot be considered lesser Hindustanis. They are equally as Hindusatnis as others are!But when it comes to Tia’s father Pratap Singh’s philiosophy, he disagrees with Rahul and finds him misfit for his daughter.

Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt starrer Agneepath opened to packed houses and the film broke the previous records at the box office on the opening day. The movie broke the record of Salman Khan’s movie ‘Bodyguard’ which made Rs. 21 crores at the box office on its opening and Hrithik’s Agneepath collected Rs. 25 crores (nett) on the opening day. The film was a big success, it seemed but all of a sudden the collections dropped (unexpectedly) the following days.
The film got a four days long weekend, as it released one day before (on Thursday 26th February, India’s Republic Day). This big fall was not being expected by the makers. It appeared a big disappointment for the distributors and the makers of the film.
The film is likely to finish the collection around 60 crores (nett) in the four days weekend (the reports are yet to come). Let’s wait and see what it offers!
Agneepath appears to be a success but not a blockbuster at all. It seems that the movie will likely to do better in Maharashtra belt.
Ghost, Shiney Ahuja and Sayali Bhagat starrer, collected around 7 crores nett in week two in single screens. It’s a below average. Abhishek Bachchan’s Players added the business of Rs. 2 crores nett in thid week’s collections. It finished with 30 crores. It is a disaster.
Agneepath’s collections really shocked the makers and the ones who invested in this film. Well, there are hopes that the film will start making good in the days to come.
Hrithik Roshan threw a success bash for his recent success ‘Agneepath’. The film has been on way to break the records. Agneepath broke the records for the first day collection by grossing more than 25 crores. It defeated Salman Khan starrer Bodyguard that grossed Rs. 21 crores on the first day.
At the party, a photographer called Sanju Baba ‘Kancha Cheena’ and what happened to him was what everybody saw. Actually Sanjay Dutt did not like him to be called with this name. This is what happened that Sanjay Dutt was leaving the party around 2:30 a.m. when the photographers were there out to click him. One of the photographers called him with the screen name ‘Kancha’ to get his attention, Sanjay returned to him and simply snapped at him.
This shows that Sanju baba does not like to be called with his screen name at all. Normally stars likes being called with the screen name. Recently Vidya was called with the name ‘Silk’ she portrayed in The Dirty Picture. But Sanju on the other hand does not like it at all. The film has been on way to make the bigger collections in India and abroad. Karan Johar is a happy man and is found portraying bigger smiles on face wherever he goes. Well, he has the reasons and he should do the same. Sanjay Dutt surpassed all his villainous roles with this one ‘Kancha’ as he really injected the life into this grey character which was earlier played by Danny Denzongupa.
