Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan were seen as the pillars of Industry as they continuously did films at least one per year till 2018. SRK after two back to back disasters and four flops, decided to take his time before he announces his next.
Salman Khan is struggling from 2017 Eid and he is still seen as the Megastar at box office as he manages to come up with 150 – 200 crores returns even with underwhelming films and opens big on holidays with 30-35 crores opening day numbers and consistent 25 above through the holiday weekend.
Aamir Khan always has been a dark horse race as he may deliver a Dangal or a Thugs of Hindosthan with his films and that too with 2 years or 3 years of long gap.
With SRK’s absence and Aamir’s consistent inconsistency, only Khan in Hindi Cinema, who is seen still relevant as a Megastar is Salman but the actor seems to be back to his arrogant self.
He is cancelling potential good projects and writing his own scripts. Also choosing to work with “Yes” men more often than not.
Prabhu Deva clearly showed that he cannot handle a film other than if it is a remake or a well-written that suits his sensibilities many times and he even delivered embarrassing flops to all heroes.
Still Salman after Tubelight, Race 3, Bharat decided to give Dabangg 3 to Prabhu Deva and even before the release of the film, started Radhe for next Eid release, cancelling Insha-Allah with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 is also written by him. The movie opened to 19 crores collections first day but the official information from the production house is that it collected 25 crores from all languages.
When Industry is expecting a 30-40 crores first day opening from his big franchise sequel, this is just too bad start. And the movie is heavily criticised by people who watched it and his die hard fans too. Seems like Khan’s have to wake up even Salman Khan.
