Will it be a hattrick for actor Salman Khan this Eid?
Mumbai: Just as he is in no haste to get married, Salman Khan is as cool as cucumber when it comes to handling any pressure concerning the release of his films. With a cracker of a year in 2010, the ‘Dabangg’ Khan had the cash registers ringing even as his ‘Wanted’ was judged the biggest hit of 2009. Industry is abuzz with rumours that the star might just complete his hattrick at the BO with the Malayalam hit Bodyguard’s Hindi remake ‘My Love Story’.
The season of Eid has worked wonders for Salman Khan. Both his last two blockbusters ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Wanted’ released around the holy season and it is expected that his next too will hit the screen at the same time. The actor is paired with Kareena Kapoor in the film, which will be directed by Siddique.
On being asked to Salman, if he feel the pressure to deliver a hit third time in a row? He said, “No, I don’t feel the pressure. In fact, I don’t want anyone including the actors, producer or director to feel any pressure. If a film has everything that the public wants in an entertaining movie, it will work, regardless of the weekend it opens in.”
‘Dabangg’ released during a relatively no-competition week. Is he planning the same for My Love Story? “That’s something that I didn’t decide. We set a date and stuck to it. Even this year, I’m not going to decide which other film or films will release with mine,” says Khan.
“In any case, the number of films we produce in a year, and release in a week doesn’t vary with a common man’s income. It will increase at its own pace. So he will watch only those films that promise him paisa vasool entertainment. If my film promises that to him, it will work — whether it comes from one, none or many films at the box office that week”, the actor added.
