Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan, known for breaking box office records with his every film, says he is concerned about the box office fate of his upcoming release `Jai Ho` as he really likes the film and wants it to do well.

"It is said that the most favourite film of the actor hasn`t worked, so that fear is also there. So far it`s not happened with me, but there will be a time that it will happen. I hope this doesn`t happen with me with this film, because I really like it. The film has a lot of action, comedy, romance etc, and yet is not in the same format as my earlier films," he said.

`Jai Ho`, directed by Sohail Khan, stars Salman, Tabu, Danny Denzongpa, newcomer Daisy Shah, Sana Khan, Suniel Shetty and others. The film, a remake of Telugu flick `Stalin`, is set to release on January 24.

Earlier, in an interview, Salman had said that the space of masala entertainer films is explored too much in Bollywood and the genre will die some day owing to repetition.
The actor said `Jai Ho` did not have frivolous action.

"The `Wanted` format is considered as an action film, whereas it is not. They are films with motive, drive and huge emotional content behind them. There is a story to it, it is not random, frivolous action that you kick and the villains are flying out. That format looked good, the films that came in that time like `Wanted`, `Singham`, `Dabangg` became huge hits," he said.

Salman feels the movies which are being made in this space now have very little work for heroes while the fighters are doing more. On the other side, the hero in his films is doing everything - from climbing, jumping, fighting, romancing to comedy.
