Salman Khan takes an apparent dig at his recent box office failure at Gippy Grewal’s film Maujaan Hi Maujaan’s trailer launch.
Salman Khan who is currently awaiting the release of his upcoming movie Tiger 3, was recently seen at the trailer launch of Gippy Grewal’s Maujaan Hi Maujaan, and during the media interaction at the event, the actor took an apparent dig at his recent box office failures.
During the media interaction at Gippy Grewal’s Maujaan Hi Maujaan trailer launch, Salman Khan called Rs 100 crore as ‘rock bottom’ for films and called Rs 1000 crore new benchmark. The actor said, “I think the 100 crore mark is going to be the rock bottom now. Everything would be 400-500-600 plus now for the Punjabi industry, Hindi industry, and every industry. Even Marathi films are doing these numbers. 100 crore is not going to be a very big deal. I think the benchmark should be 1000 crore for a film right now.”
Gippy stated that he is hopeful about his movie Maujaan Hi Maujaan also achieving box office feat based on Salman’s statement. The Punjabi actor opined, “When our films used to do business of 10-15 crore, we would be surprised. Last time, when asked if our film could do 100 crores, we didn’t know what to say. But by God’s grace, everything went well. If Salman sir is saying, then something huge will happen.”
Salman Khan took a jibe at his recent box office failures and said, “Mere pe mat jana bhai, picture pe jana, kyuki mere khud ke predictions meri films pe nahi chal rahe (Don’t go by what I say brother, go by the movie as my predictions about my own films don’t seem to be working)”. Salman was hinting at his previous releases like Radhe which didn’t fare well at the box office.
Meanwhile, Salman Khan will be next seen in the movie Tiger 3 which also stars Katrina Kaif and Emraan Hashmi. Helmed by Maneesh Sharma, the spy thriller will also have Shah Rukh Khan’s action-packed cameo in the film which is scheduled to be released in the theatre this Diwali (November 12).
