    Rocky or rocky's

    Hi guys,

    Do we need to say "No more sequels of rocky or rocky's?

    Of "Rocky." Capitalized. In italics or quotes.

    Why is it wrong to say "Rocky's", we say "A friend of mine or an enemy of yours".

    "Rocky" is a film, it can't possess anything.

    "No more Rocky sequels".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Rocky or rocky's

    So we have to say "There are several characters of mahabharat not mahabharat's", because mahabharat is a non living thing and cannot posses anything.

    Re: Rocky or rocky's

    If Mahabharat is the incredibly long Indian "soap opera" which used to be shown on British TV, then we wouldn't say "characters of" at all.

    There are many characters in Mahabharat.

    I agree with you about the first. As for the second, in BrE, we would call it a "film/movie premiere".
