Has Salman Khan lost his charm at the box-office?
Yogen Shah

Salman’s recent release Jai Ho has failed at the box-office. Does this mean that Salman is not the favorite Khan anymore?

Salman Khan returned to the silver screen after a long gap of over a year with Jai Ho. It was almost presumed that the movie would get the cash registers ringing and smash all records. But neither Salman, nor his legion of fans would have imagined a poor box-office collection of Jai Ho, which is directed by Sallu’s brother Sohail Khan.

Surprisingly, Jai Ho has failed to receive a dhamaakedar response from the masses as compared to Sallu’s earlier flicks like Ek Tha Tiger, Wanted, Dabangg and various others. So does that mean that the Dabangg Khan has lost his charm at the box-office? Well, we don’t know about that yet, but Sallu miyaan in a recent interview has said, that he will take the blame for Jai Ho‘s failure. “If, god forbid, the film doesn’t pick up from Monday, I’ll take the blame on me,” he said.

But what could be the possible reason behind such a poor response for Jai Ho? Are Salman’s fans still angry over his biased attitude during Bigg Boss 7? Remember how Sallu’s fans – who used to worship him – started hating him post his biased remarks on the high voltage reality show? So that could be one of the reasons for failure of Jai Ho, right? But Salman thinks otherwise and says, “It’s maybe because of the festive week or my fans don’t have the money to go to the theater,”

Wanted Khan’s disappointment doesn’t end there. He thinks that even the music of the film failed to garner any interest. “We thought music will pick up, but only two songs did good,” he said, adding that, with the songs of Yaariyan becoming a rage with the youth, Jai Ho didn’t cut much ice.

However, Salman is not bothered about the collections and is happy about the fact that his message is being received by the audience. “My mission is accomplished. People are getting the message of the film. And I am happy with the product.”

Anyway, if Jai Ho has indeed failed at the BO, there is something that Salman needs to fix to bounce back, hai na?Subscribe to me on YouTube

      I think hereafter salman should learn a lesson or two.. Like don,t ever get mixed up with politians, however they are popular.. Don,t take sides and also being diplomatic also does not count, if he is seen with the company.. People will get furious, if the politians happens to be like modi.
      And no 2 people are sensitive and won,t forget and forgive, even though salman does his duty of performing dance in UP. And also the big mistake was being biased with few people. In big boss 7 Why should u bother who is right who is wrong in the show. U compere and go back home. People are waiting to pounce on u salman,for the slightest provocation. We all love u. Hereafter tread carefully, and learn from ur past mistakes, even though it was committed unknowingly from u. Being bindaas get u no where, learn from sharukh and Aamir they hardly get into trouble especially aamirI am a great favcf urs. Today I am going to watch ur movie. I bet I will love it

  • ruchir dhiman

    dnt bring politics in btween salman , jai ho n his fans ..plz….
    go guys enjoy the movie….

    Somehow the whole thing with Modi reminds me of the character definite from GOW2, how the half muslim half Hindu sides with the Hindu mother at the end,there is nothing wrong in loving your mother & I am sure salman does it quite innocently,but being the star that you are it is also very tricky to balance it well. Being a muslim myself I feel that he is more Hindu than Muslim, we saw him dancing in the street for Ganesh but have any of you saw him in a public masjid praying on eid or whatever?
    We all know how close he is to his mother, but mama’s boy should also remember being the ultra traditional fascist he is, children in our sub continent usually follow the religion of their father. Being a secular means peaceful co-existent among all religion, I am a muslim have many Hindu friends, but they don’t expect me to do puja nor do I expect them to pray,we have mutual understanding and respect.
    And for heavens sake let go of the brothers, let them do their own thing, we are not interested to know how sohail sees you, he already had his moment, playing a traditional older brother filmi style doesn’t help you make wise decision,work with good directors, like prabhu deva, films like wanted, where he new how to bring out your inner mojo:-) it’s time for you to take baby steps out of your comfort zone. What do you have to lose now? Make stylish action flicks like the bonds. Sallu mian you are looking nice these days just don’t keep bad company. They are taking you down with them & for god sake loose the torn jeans.

  • sara@786

    its not abt bringing politics…. its abt the heartlessness of a superstar…..
    wake up guys…. by just printing being human on t shirts won’t work….
    when you have power use it for the good

    • fahein

      “Heartlessness” my foot…..3-4 mistakes uski sab count krte hain lekn uski itni sari acchai ko bhi aise hi highlight kar diya karo..He has got a pure soul & a pure heart,he is v.emotnal bas yahi uski weaknss hai..

      • Mohtashim

        ha ha ha weakness, he has played with the emotions of many leading ladies and his attitude of talking to the costars had been better watched in BB7. So now he has to realise that ppl can’t tolerate his ill behaviour and bisased favourism that he did with Tanisha and Arman.
        Go to hell SALMAN

  • sara@786

    if you are real fan…. then correct him when he is wrong…..
    this is what we do to our real “bhai”
