Salman Khan is currently enjoying the success of his film Tiger 3. The Maneesh Sharma directorial also stars Katrina Kaif and Emraan Hashmi. For the uninitiated, Tiger 3 has already crossed the Rs 400 crore mark at the global box office. Before Tiger 3, Salman was a part of two movies Antim: The Final Truth and Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan. Antim, as well as KKBKKJ did not create the same magic as Tiger 3 at the box office. Now, Salman opened up about Antim and Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’s box office performance.
Salman Khan talks about Antim and KKBKKJ’s box office
While Antim collected over Rs 39.06 crores, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ji Jaan earned over Rs 110.53 crores at the domestic box office. According to Indian Express, Salman said that Antim and KKBKKJ flopped because of discounted prices. He said, “When these films were released, people were not going to theatres. Moreover, we didn’t do blockbuster prices; we were going for popular prices. Our box office numbers were lower in those films but we focused on saving the audience’s money. How much did you watch Tiger 3 at? Rs 600, 1000?”
The actor added that the ticket prices of Antim and KKBKKJ were not more than Rs 250. He said, “Ek toh acha karo bhai. Humare number kam aa rahe hai, lekin audiences ke paisa bach raha hai (We earned less, but we saved the audience money in that process. We did a good deed).”
He further went on to add that if Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan would have released today, the numbers would have been a lot more than what they were.
Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan was a family drama. It also starred Pooja Hegde, Shehnaaz Gill, Daggubati Venkatesh, Raghav Juyavl, Siddharth Nigam, Bhumika Chawla, and Palak Tiwari. On the other hand, Antim starred Aayush Sharma as an antagonist.
