Half of Bollywood support Akshay Kumar's Rustom

Peepli Live director sentenced to jail for rape
One half of Peepli Live directing duo, Mahmood Farooqui, was finally sentenced for seven years by a Delhi Court for raping an American scholar at his Delhi residence. The said incident occurred in 2015 when the victim had gone to meet him to seek his help for her research. He was also imposed a fine of Rs. 50,000 to be paid to the rape victim.
Is YRF cheating Salman Khan with regards to Sultan?
It's strange for a film like Sultan to not have crossed Rs 300 crores till now, when it had such a clear field in July and also being the fastest to reach Rs 200 crores checkpoint. Rumours have surfaced that the production house, YRF, have underplayed the figures as they do not want to give too much of their profit share to Salman Khan (which is stupid, since he is the only reason why the film is earning so much). Another set of rumours that followed is that Salman Khan has refused to work with the production company after this. If this is true, who can blame him?
