Salman Khan on his last two failed films
The Indian Express quoted Salman Khan telling the media, “When these films (Antim: The Final Truth and Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan) released, people did not go to the cinema. Our box office numbers were lower in these films, but we focused on saving the audience’s money. How much have you watched Tiger 3? ₹600, 1000?
Salman went on to say that he ensures that the audience’s money is not wasted and keeps his films affordable. “For Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan and Antim, our prices were not exceeded ₹250. Ek toh acha karo bhai. Humare number kam aa rahe hai, lekin audiences ka paisa bach raha hai (We earned less, but we saved the public money in this process. We did a good deed). If Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan had been released today, the numbers would have been much higher than what they were,” he said.
Salman on success and failure
During the conversation, Salman also claimed that he doesn’t taste success at all. He added that he believes it is “important to experience the bitter taste of failure” in order to be a “true winner.” Talking about the success of Tiger 3, he had earlier told news agency ANI, “It was Diwali time and the World Cup was happening and everyone was interested in it, but despite that, the numbers that we received are wonderful…we are very grateful and happy for that.”
What’s next for Tigre?
Salman has, among others, The Bull and Tiger Vs Pathaan in the pipeline. The latter will be the next installment in the YRF Spy franchise, featuring a showdown between Salman and Shah Rukh Khan. Reportedly, it will be directed by Siddharth Anand.
