The pairing of sizzling hot Katrina Kaif and suave, sexy Ranbir Kapoor in ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Khani’ has not only been lapped up by the audiences in theaters but even Shehanshah of bollywood acknowledged their crackling chemistry recently on Bigg Boss 3.
Amitabh Bachchan, who hosts the season 3 of Bigg Boss, was all praise for the young stars when they visited the sets of the reality show to promote their latest release ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghzab Kahani’.
Big B was especially impressed by the rocking progress of Katrina Kaif from a non- entity in her first flick ‘Boom’(which bombed at the box office despite of the presence of Amitabh Bachchan in it) to one of the top heroines of tinsel town in such a short span of time.
Amitabh Bachchan recalled the fact that at the time of their first film together (Boom), Katrina Kaif could not speak Hindi, and even then had continued her struggle in bollywood to get a foothold. Her efforts bore fruit and now she has become the most desired bollywood babe for renowned producers and directors.
Katrina Kaif’s latest released flick ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’ has already been making waves at the box office. On Sunday, theatres were full with ticket seekers, who had hard time in getting to watch Katrina Kaif-Ranbir Kapoor starrer flick.
Sources from the trade say that Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif starrer flick ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’ has seen a terrific opening and can be compared favorably to Saif Ali Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer hit ‘Love Aaj Kal’.
While the fantastic response to ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’ at the box office has brightened the prospects of other bollywood biggies ready for release, it certainly badly affected the prospects of Madhur Bhandarkar’s flick ‘Jail’.
In fact, Jail’ got a dismal opening even on its first day. This was so despite of the fact that Madhur Bhandarkar is big name in bollywood with formidable hits like ‘Chandni Bar’, ‘Page 3’, ‘Corporate’ and ‘Fashion’ behind him.
Trade sources say that the ‘feel good’ factor associated with Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif flick did wonder for it at the box office as it was a humorous, romantic flick, with which youth could relate themselves. On the other hand, ‘Jail’, despite of having one of the best directors, failed to entice the audiences towards theaters due to its depressing subject.
