Salman Khan doesn't follow the set patterns of Bollywood's rulebook and you might agree with us on this.
He doesn't care if his movies are not given great ratings by the film critics because according to him, it's the box office numbers that validate any film.
Salman Khan's latest release 'Bharat', which is an official remake of the South Korean film 'Ode to My Father', has turned out to be a lucky project for the actor.
The movie is doing pretty well at the domestic market and is inching close to earning Rs 200 crores. The movie opened to mixed reviews from critics as some called it 'bland' and some termed it the perfect Eid blockbuster.
But, none of these ratings affect our superstar, Salman Khan, in fact, he feels “scared” when critics praise his movies.
In one of the group interviews, while promoting the movie, Salman said, “My validation comes from the box office collections... that the people have liked or not liked a film. It doesn't make a difference if someone (a critic) has given it so many stars (ratings) or ridiculed the film. It's their bread and butter. God bless them, give them two more (slices of) bread,” Salman said in a group interview. Asked how he feels when the critics give glorious reviews to his films, the actor said he is unable to wrap his head around it.
To all the journalists who have interviewed me during #Bharat ... a big thank u to all...— Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) June 12, 2019
He added that he wants the audience to go to the theatres and forget about their life in general when they are watching his movies.
Apart from Salman, 'Bharat' also stars Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Jackie Shroff, Nora Fatehi, Sunil Grover and Tabu. The movie chronicles important events that have taken place in the country after Independence.
