The film directed by first-timer Prem Soni had a lukewarm opening at the box office and has been trashed by critics.
Says an insider, "Last Friday, when Main Aurr Mrs Khanna released and opened to only 10 per cent collections, an infuriated Salman called over his brother Sohail (the film's producer) and director Prem Soni to his home and asked them to explain the reason for the debacle.
The source continues, "Salman told them that in the promotions, they'd projected him as the main lead, when he was actually in a supporting role and his fans were feeling cheated. Salman has always been very clear about the expectations of his fans and he was hurt that this time his home production had sent out the wrong message." Salman also added that the film hadn't shaped up like he'd been told. He told Prem too in no uncertain terms that he was very disappointed with his work.
"The meeting called for by Salman, soon escalated into a full-scale argument between him and Sohail. So much so, that their dad Salim Khan had to intervene to sort it out. Of course, by the weekend, the two brothers sorted out their issues but there's still a question mark for Prem's film. Though Salman is very attached to his brothers and family, he feels he needs to do better films now and Sohail should have had more control over the script and editing."
However, Sohail denies any fight with bro Sallu.
