Deepika: Trade expert Komal Nahata says, “Deepika has had two huge hits with Om Shanti Om and Love Aaj Kal. She has a better standing at the box-office than Sonam.” Speculating on money riding on her he adds, “KHJJS has a huge budget, while the other two films are average and above average in terms of pricing. I think it’s safe to say she has around Rs 60-65 crore riding on her.”
Says Taran Adarsh: “Deepika looks really piping hot! As far as money riding on both is concerned, she has an edge over Sonam, as she has a few hits to her credit. Deepika has evolved into a fine actress.”
Sonam: Trade expert Komal Nahata says, “Mausam won’t release this year. Aisha has a medium budget so it’s safe to say she has around Rs 15 crore riding on her. In the past, she has had two big flops, but with IHLS her standing at the box-office has changed.”
Says Taran Adarsh: “Sonam’s looking very good. She is being appreciated after IHLS and the promos of Aisha. Next she has Anees Bazmee’s comedy and Pankaj Kapur’s Mausam. Sonam is emerging as an actor now.”
