Kabir Khan on Tubelight failure: I’m disappointed

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Kabir Khan recently helmed Salman Khan starrer Tubelight which released on Eid. The duo has earlier given two blockbusters, Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan so the expectations were huge. However Tubelight has failed to impress the critics and the audience. The film was a big failure at the box office.

Talking about it Kabir Khan says, “I am disappointed. You make a film with a lot of love and conviction and if it doesn’t do well the way it was expected to do, it’s disheartening.”

The filmmaker, however, says Tubelight will always remain special irrespective of what response it received at the box office. “We can’t expect every film to do the business like Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Every film of mine is put against Bajrangi Bhaijaan and it is unfair. I am extremely proud of Tubelight.

“It’s too early to analyse what went wrong with the film. Maybe people were not able to identify with the character of Salman. But I was happy with what Salman did and even he was playing this part”. Recently, it was reported that Salman would refund distributors to compensate for the losses incurred by Tubelight.

Recently, it was reported that Salman would refund distributors to compensate for the losses incurred by Tubelight. When asked about it, Kabir says, “I am not a producer, I am a line producer of the film. I can’t talk about it as it’s about business. I think it is a great thing. It’s a good gesture by Salman. (But) For the film itself the cost is successful.”’

    There cant be 2 kings
    So I guess Aamir is king and Salman is queen. No wonder why Salman cant marry

  10. well.. what is the use if u put a lot of hard with zero content in the film and then later cry for its debacle??..
    i just feel kabir got carried away due to salman power and made a boring and dragging film without even a bloody message.. that disappointed all of us..

  11. Just a flop so not a big deal SRK took long 13 years to break the collection of HAHK,baat karta hain haters and jealous public.

    • HAHK was Madhuri’s credit, not Gangu Teli sallu. He was giving disasters then.

    first…Tube light is not for Salmaan role….playing able character suits a few actor … Hrithik is one who can give justice to this role….. the arrogant of salmaan has given him a big lesson….. he has even insulted Pritham for Sultaan…. in fact salmaan is very weak in acting…. Hrithik should be very careful before signing any movie with Kabir Khan….

  13. TZH band bajaega hakle,toilet kumar ki.
    New name toilet Kumar.
    I respect both sharuk akshay and also amir but their fan forcing me to abuse all these star.
