While Salman Khan’s recent release, “Tubelight” did manage to enter the 100 crore club, it took the film almost five days to do so, making it Salman’s slowest money- spinner. However, when quizzed about the slow response to the film, Salman smiled and stated, “Do I look stressed?”
Clarifying the purpose for film’s subdued response, Salman stated, “Individuals expected a different film. An eid film with singing and moving. They can’t see me cry.” Though the film may have now entered the 100 crore club, the trade experts believe that the film might end up losing roughly INR 60 crore or more.
A producer on condition of anonymity stated, “When Salman says he is not worried, he is probably right. His financial liabilities in regards to the film have been taken care of, as his movies lose nothing even if the movie fails to meet expectations. It is the distributors who are likely to suffer.”
When prodded if Salman wants to repay the producers. the source included, “It would be the right thing for Salman to do because the distributors are likely to suffer substantial losses. But it all depends on Salman’s discretion. If he feels he owes it to the distributors, he will.”
