salman Khan who is all set for the release of Jai Ho says he personally does not beleive in breaking records but wants his films to do well. Salman also wants his producers, exhibitors and distributors to earn the moolah.
“I just don’t want my films to flop because that would mean my thinking is going wrong and that would be the worst thing. I don’t care about the Rs 200-300 crore club. I don’t want to be a part of this number game. I am there (in that bracket) but it is not like I want to break that record. I want to make a good film. As long as my films run and make decent money, I am happy,” Salman said in an interview.
But the kind of films that Salman opts are often categorised “over the top” lacking logic. “Now you call it ‘bakwaas’ (mindless) cinema or whatever but that is the kind of cinema I want to do because that is the kind of cinema I have seen. As a kid I have gone to theaters, stood on chairs, whistled for the heroes,” he said. “Movies should be such that if a hero has fallen down audience should feel the urge to scream and say “get up”. You come out of the theatre… you want to be the hero. That is the feeling you should get,” said the Dabangg Khan.
Salman wants ticket prices to go down between Rs. 150-200 but unfortunately he does not have a say in that. “It is in the hands of the theater owners and distributors. We wanted to get it (ticket prices) down,” he said. His actor friend Aamir Khan had once said that the ‘Dabangg’ star can bulldoze any logic with his films. On this, Salman says, “Aamir and I do different kind of cinema. My cinema is more about going to the theaters, whistling, enjoying. And within that space I do and say whatever I have to.”
“I think the only reason why a film would do well is because it is emotionally correct,” he added. Directed by brother Sohail Khan, ‘Jai Ho’ also features newcomer Daisy Shah, Tabu, Suniel Shetty, Danny Denzongpa and others.
