Salman Khan: ‘Even my flop films do Rs 100 crore at the box office’
Even though Salman’s films are not rich in content, they still collect a good amount at the box-office. ‘Tubelight’ (2017) and his ‘Race 3’ (2018) were one of the most hyped movies, yet both the movies were not liked by the audiences as well as critics. If we look at the box office collections, ‘Tubelight’ minted around Rs 114 crore at the domestic box-office while ‘Race 3’ pocketed around Rs 166 crore.
In a recent group interview, the ‘Dabangg’ actor boasted of his flop films that make more than Rs 100 crore at the box-office. He said, “I am one of the fortunate ones that even my flop films do a business of over Rs 100 crore. I told Aayush and Warina that even if you deliver a flop film, it should do Rs 160 crore at the box office.. So now, they have the pressure of flop film.”
When the actor was asked about nepotism and launching his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, he dismissed allegations saying that if it wasn’t him then someone else would have launched Aayush because he is talented. “He has been training hard. I knew this nepotism thing would come up.. He is son of a politician how can you put him into this nepotism thing. This is the only one place where nepotism cannot work at all. It is the audience that will make you a superstar or will reject you no matter whose son or brother-in-law you are,” added Salman.
With ‘LoveYatri’, Salman Khan is launching Aayush with newbie Warina Hussain. The movie is slated to release on October 5.
