The producers of DANGAL threw a success bash of their film few days back. The grand success party was attended by crème de la crème of B-town. Aamir Khan along with wife Kiran played a perfect host at the soiree.


Interestingly, the film released on 23rd last December and till now has done a business of 350 plus crore in domestic market. Upon its release every aspect of the film was praised right from the performance of new comers Fatima Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra, to Aamir Khan's terrific portrayal of Mahavir Phogat, film's direction, cinematography, supporting star casts' role everything was applauded.

The film went ahead and broke all previously set records of Aamir Khan's films at the box office. Based on true story DANGAL took us through the journey of Mahavir Phogat and his daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat, who brought first Commonwealth Games gold medal for the country as a female wrestler.
Even after being such a huge hit the makers of this film threw a success party almost two months post its release. May be they wanted to celebrate their films' success in true sense unlike other filmmakers in the industry who ring in ‘success' of their film (just after completing first weekend) even when in reality all they have faced is pure loss upon their film's release.

Throwing a success party irrespective of the fate of their film at box-office is a current trend in Bollywood, where every other small or big filmmaker throws a lavish after release party just to save their face and have a different picture in front of gullible audience which in turn will gain footfalls in cinema halls.

We agree that few of these may be celebrating the fact that they have recovered the production cost of the film but when films who hardly had anyone watch it in theatre throws a so-called ‘success' shindig then it certainly raises many eye brows.

We hope sense prevails among the producers and they stop following such meaningless trends which burn a huge hole in their pockets and celebrate their project's success only when they have actually succeeded in raking enough moolah. Guess they can learn a lesson or two from Aamir Khan what true success means.
