Salman Khan worried about Jai Ho’s fate
The actor says he really likes the content of his new film and wants it to become a huge hitUpdated: Jan 23, 2014 18:13 IST
Actor Salman Khan, known for breaking box office records with almost every film of his, 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 often said that the most favourite film of an actor doesn;t do very well; so that fear is also there. So far it’s not happened with me, but there will be a time when it might happen. I hope this doesn’t happen with this film, because I really like it. The film has a lot of action, comedy and romance, 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, newcomers Daisy Shah, Sana Khan and others. The film, a remake of the Telugu flick Stalin, releases today. Earlier, Salman had said that the space of masala entertainer films is explored too much in Bollywood and that the genre will die some day owing to repetition.
The 48-year-old also said that Jai Ho does not have frivolous action, unlike some of his earlier films. “There is a story to the film, it is not random, frivolous action that you kick the villain and he flies out,” he said.
