Salman Khan’s next Tubelight is all set for its big release on Eid this month. Everyone is looking forward to see how well will the superstar’s film will do at the box-office. With Baahubali 2 doing immensely well and breaking all box-office records, it would be interesting to see Tubelight hitting the screens.
Looks like Salman can also feel the pressure. In his recent conversation with a leading daily, he said, “I will tell you why numbers have become such a big thing. The most amazing thing about Baahubali’s success is that the Hindi audiences are so accepting. They have made a Telugu film so large, even though they do not know south heroes apart from three or four of them. South audiences know us there; yet, our films do not do that volume of business because their fans have an extraordinary sense of loyalty to their actors. Fan following is very strong — if there is a Kamal Haasan fan, then he will be a Kamal fan forever; Rajinikanth fan will be a Rajinikanth fan for life. We have piracy here; one should try indulging in piracy there, fan clubs wouldn’t allow it.”
Salman even mentioned that the hindi audiences are extremely appreciative of different genres of cinema and good storyline. “Yes. Hats off to the Hindi audiences. They love movies, and go and watch English, Chinese, and south films. A Salman Khan fan will also watch an Aamir Khan film and a Shah Rukh Khan film. And, if the film is good, they will appreciate it.”
Tubelight is directed by Kabir Khan and will be released on June 23.
