Mumbai:(PTI)Superstar Salman Khan, known for breaking box office records with his every film, 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 said that the most favourite film of the actor hasn`t worked, so that fear is also there. So far it`s not happened with me, but there will be a time that it will happen. I hope this doesn`t happen with me with this film, because I really like it. The film has a lot of action, comedy, romance etc, 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, newcomer Daisy Shah, Sana Khan, Suniel Shetty and others. The film, a remake of Telugu flick `Stalin`, is set to release on January 24.Earlier, in an interview, Salman had said that the space of masala entertainer films is explored too much in Bollywood and the genre will die some day owing to repetition.
The actor said `Jai Ho` did not have frivolous action.”The `Wanted` format is considered as an action film, whereas it is not. They are films with motive, drive and huge emotional content behind them. There is a story to it, it is not random, frivolous action that you kick and the villains are flying out. That format looked good, the films that came in that time like `Wanted`, `Singham`, `Dabangg` became huge hits,” he said.
Salman feels the movies which are being made in this space now have very little work for heroes while the fighters are doing more. On the other side, the hero in his films is doing everything – from climbing, jumping, fighting, romancing to comedy.
Popular fiction writer Chetan Bhagat will be writing the screenplay for Salman Khan starrer ‘Kick’. Chetan Bhagat is one of the most sought after authors in Bollywood. His novels like Five Point Someone and One Night at Call Center have been successfully adapted and several other projects are also based on his novels.
Announcing the decision to write the screenplay of ‘Kick’ the author tweeted, “Happy to share with you that I`ll be writing the screenplay of `Kick` starring Salman Khan and directed by Sajid Nadiadwala. Have known both Salman and Sajid Nadiadwala for a while and been wanting to work with them. Couldn`t have asked for a better screenplay debut. Will be adapting Kick from original Telugu superhit, with fair amount of changes as well. Huge expectations, need all ur support! Thanks!”
‘Kick’ is Hindi remake of a Telugu blockbuster of the same name and the screenplay will be inspired from the original. The Telugu kick was a story of Robinhood style robber who used to rob the rich and distribute the loot among poor.
