It is going to be a family outing in theaters this weekend. With as many as three open weeks ahead, a Christmas holiday and then a long New Year weekend as well, Bollywood is
pretty much looking at a Box Office bonanza from this Friday onwards. Since the target audience is families, as is the case with every Christmas release, just the right films are set for release as
The countdown has begun for Bajiao Mastani and Dilwale, and fortunately them, the content put together by the makers is such that Censor Board too acknowledged as well. Here are the

it is one double bonanza up for the grabs.
May both the films score, and score big!
