I will give my fans exactly what they expect of me: Salman Khan

The much-awaited Tiger Zinda Hai is finally arriving this Friday. With this film, Salman Khan will be returning to his favourite genre. Since 2010, he has not faced any failure except Tubelight which also released this year.

In a recent interview to DNA, Salman Khan opened up about the failure of Tubelight and his future choices of films. He said, “When the script of Tubelight came to me, this was my reading of the film — I thought times have changed. People want to see me in something different — they say ‘you take your stardom seriously’. Now, I have realised that my fans want to see me in the same kind of cinema that I have been doing. So, that is exactly what they are going to get. Starting with Tiger Zinda Hai, Bharat, Race 3, Dabangg 3 and the Kick sequel, I will give my fans exactly what they expect of me.

“Frankly, even I like doing these kinds of films. In fact, I like watching these kind of films. Films like Tubelight, I can watch on TV — badi emotional hai ruladeti hai. Main kyun jaaon theatre rone ke liye? After Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the makers thought we should do something with emotions and Tubelight happened jaha pe bhai peet rahe hai. Woh accha nahi laga fans ko. But when you see these films on TV, you will like them.”

“The release date was not right. On a festive release date (Eid) you should give a festive film only, and not make people cry in the theatre. My fans were trying to find moments where they can celebrate, throw coins and do dhamaal masti. But they didn’t get that!”

He said that Tubelight was a disaster according to his standards. “The film did well, but in my standards, it was a disaster. Meri dua hai ke har ek ki aisi disaster ho!”

Salman also talked about Tiger Zinda Hai and its director Ali Abbas Zafar. “The recall value of Ek Tha Tiger, Dabangg, and Wanted is so strong that it is easy to pull off a sequel, but that’s only if your script is better than the first one. Sequels should not be like proposals; they should have something definitive to convey. Until such time, you should not touch it. The sequel of ETT has taken five years, though it could have been made earlier. It’s not as if there were four-five scripts, they came up with only one script and that was it. The first thing I heard about the sequel was its title. When they told me it was going to be called Tiger Zinda Hai, I said done!”

“The first thing I told Ali was that Kabir had invested a year-and-a-half and given two-and-a-half hours screen time to Ek Tha Tiger. He had set the characters so well — Tiger, Zoya, and Chinoy. All Ali had to do was to take it to the next level. He had to not only make a film completely different from Sultan, but also make Tiger bigger. I told him ‘you have to get the plot right, the mission right, everything else — romance, gaane-waane ho jayenge’. Everything has to be there and on a larger scale. He said, he has the best plot ever and everything fell into place.”

    • But aamir and u never accepted that talash was flop, anyway, salman delivered a disaster which would be Blockbuster for akki and super hit for aamir right (the lash – Talash was super hit on 90 why wouldn’t it be BB on 120…😂 😂 😂 😂 😂)

      Its the main reason why he is the most popular superstar inside india..he does nt choose scripts like shahid or ranbir or even srk that does not appeal to his fanbase..he does exactly wht his fans want and i hope he does forever..cause those brainless critics does not matter..audience is the baap

    • Ghamandi salman bolta hai sb ki disaster tubelight jajse ho ..abe eid me 4400 screens me 3 week free run ne 114cr kamaya sirf kon si bari baat hai

      Agar jhms ki jagah 4 aug ko 3100 screens pe aati non holiday rehta or next week toilet prem katha to 60cr bhi shayad krta

      4400 screens me 20cr opening
      Jhms 3100 screens 15cr ..or jhms ka promotion kitna bekaar hua tha sb ko pta hai or limited appeal movie tha

    According to addatoday advance booking till 2 PM – 30- 35 %

    • Ek hote h jo amir amir krte
      Ek hote hai jo srk akshay karte hai
      Phir ate hai legends jo only amazon obhijaan jaisi baatein krte hai.
      Waah chutiye waah

  6. TZH looks interesting bur sorry bhai, iss bar yeh movie sayad theatre mein nahi dekhungi..
    If Amazon appears to be extra-ordinary, then I’ll watch it at least 3/4 times (1 with my friends in village, 1 with my parents & 1 with my college friends in Kolkata multiplex)..
    If Amazon appears to be medio-core, then I’ll not watch it more than 2 times..
    & if Amazon appears to be extremely poor, then I will watch it 1 time & then definitely watch TZH

    • 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 Holywood ki film Like Ragnarok or The last jedi or Volume 2, Homecoming etc to 3 baar to dekhne ka dil nahi karta ye obhijaan homijaan kaha se dil karta hoga… 😂 😂 😂 😂 ab ye mat kehna k homijaan ka vfx last jedi, Ragnarok etc se better hai…. 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂

  7. Public want aamir in emotional rol and salman as action hero
    Ajay as action+comedy rol

  8. Hope Tiger zinda ho stands to salman’s word…

    as last for 2-3 movies salman clearly bluffed by saying …
    “Tubelight is very nice movie and one of the best”

    He had also said “prem ratan dhan payoo is better then hum apke hai kaun'”

    so dekhte iss baar bhai ki baat kaha tak sahi hoti hai..

  9. 2days baki,,,leking pora india me 35/40% weekend ki advance booking hogeyi,,,,n 30cr advance booking hogegi,,,,parsaha

    because Salman knows his abilities he not a brilliant actor like ammir,srk , Akshay,Ajay he can’t do movies like
    my name is Khan,baby,tepk, jolly,tzp,tallash, dhrishyam etc etc he said the only actor who is in industry for almost 3 decades still doesn’t know how to act

    bollyarena always against salman khan two of dubai critics give 4.5 star out of five but u did not mention till to time but if some one wrote against film aam sure u write with in a minute

  12. true salman.. ur fans wants u..
    … not to act in boring films like tubelight
    … not to act in any films directed by your brothers
    … keep the same formula going as we all love u for the same tireless!

  13. Day 1 : 31-34cr
    Day 2 : More or less the same as Day 1, add or subtract a bit.
    Day 3 : 35 cr approx
    Day 4 : Might hit 40cr if w.o.m is good, otherwise around 35cr.

    Weekend (4 day) : 125-145cr

    Total lifetime business:
    350cr if very good w.o.m
    300 cr+ if good w.o.m
    250-300cr if avg to good w.o.m
    200cr+ if avg w.o.m
    180cr if poor w.o.m

  14. Yes, one should agree with Salman statments here. He has definitely tried to do something hatke with films like Bajrangi bhaijaan, PRDP and tubelight (some extent Sultan too) but except BB and Sultan people don’t liked his other too. But i am still ubhappy with his decision of being part of only franchise except Bharat, it’s not that is required from the big superstar in his best phase. He should come with other movies with those Salman integrants, that’s enough. Anyways best of luck Salman, his probably 3rd 300 cr grosser.

  15. Tiger Zinda Hai has a strong advance though it is well short of the Bahubali – The Conclusion level which will remain the highest advance of all time. The all India advance is comparable to any other film though it will be known where it actually stands by the close of business today. Thursday is the biggest day for advance and the film will make rapid strides today. It is far ahead of the top Hindi film advances of this year which were Tubelight and Raees. In most cities these films have been crossed already and there is still one more day to go.

    Although the final picture will emerge later on today it is safe to say that the single screen advance is the second highest highest ever after Sultan while in multiplexes it will finish among the top five but the position will be know at the close of business. Sultan also has the highest advance at multiplexes though at he bigger multiplexes it is Dangal. These positions are not including Bahubali – The Conclusion which stands apart as a craze pre release among the audience.

    The on the day audience is still the key as was seen with Golmaal Again which with hardly any advance took a 30 crore nett opening day though it was a national holiday. Tiger Zinda Hai has action, scale and two hit songs and as far as the film is concerned it is about the love story working and this film will be unstoppable. In India an action film needs a base and today a love story is that base as the traditional base was revenge but that maybe passe for the audience today with love being the stronger emotion.
