Forgettable flops in Salman’s career will definitely include his last release ‘Tubelight’ movie. After releasing with a lot of hype even before the release, the movie hit a new low after the release. The Kabir Khan directorial took a free fall from Rs 64.77 crore the first weekend to an inadequate Rs 7.5 crore during the second weekend. Since the utter flop of veer, Tubelight is the worst movie in Sallu’s career till date.
Critics panned the movie giving it 1 or 2 stars which showed on the collections too. There were reports that producers and distributors were demanding compensation from Salman. New was even confirmed by trade analyst Komal Mehta that the star agreed to pay the distributors. “Salman Khan has agreed to refund monies to distributors to make up for losses in Tubelight. A lovely gesture. That’s being human!” As per reports, Salman paid a whopping Rs 55 crores to the distributors.
Did the failure of the movie make any impact on his mind? The Khan’s answer is a no. He never takes the success and failure to heart. “I have never considered myself a superstar the way people make me out to be. I’m still an ordinary person at heart.” says the megastar.
“There are actors who get in a complacent zone and think, ‘Whatever I do is okay,’ and that’s the worst thing to do ever. No matter which position one is in, one should always work in the way one did for his first film. That sincerity should be there in every shot of yours. You should just focus on doing well. If you take everything for granted, your stardom won’t take much time to come to an end,” Sallu Bhai adds.
Coming to the current projects of Salman, the actor is busy shooting for his upcoming movie Tiger Zinda Hai which also features Katrina Kaif opposite him. It is a sequel of Ek Tha Tiger and is slated to be released on December 22, 2017.
