Is Sohail Khan justified in asking distributors to pay Rs 130 crores for Salman Khan’s Mental?

The Dabangg 2 superstar’s younger brother has asked for an astronomical amount for his next. But is he justified in doing so?

Everyone knows that Salman Khan is on a high these days. Almost anything he does turns into gold, and even a mediocre movie he signs nets Rs 100 crores easily. Yet, is this time for him to do better movies, or just make hay while the sun shines and earn all the quick moolah?

If you ask us, it’s better if he sticks around for the long haul and chooses projects carefully. But it seems his brother Sohail Khan thinks otherwise. Sohail has apparently started asking for an astronomical Rs 130 crores for the theatrical rights of his next film Mental. Now we have no issues with that much price being quoted for a Salman Khan starrer, but remember this is Sohail Khan who is directing the flick. Sohail, who is a mediocre director at best, and whose past record has been sketchy to say the least, with duds like Auzaar and Hello Brother. We wonder on what basis is Sohail asking for Rs 130 crores!

Also, we had heard that Salman Khan himself is taking all the major business decisions these days. Well, if he truly is, then this is something he needs to look into. After all, one flop at this stage could change the tide for Salman. And an expensive flop may completely shake the distributors’ confidence in the actor.

So, what do you say guys? Is Sohail Khan justified in asking for Rs 130 crores for his brother’s film?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    I am absolute agrees with the author of article, Sohail doesn’t cost such money. The first signs of self-confidence of Salman, for me sounded when he replaced the director in “Dabang2″. I still think that if it didn’t replace Abhinav Kashyap, the movie would collect 250крор and quietly would beat “3 idiots”. But Salman imagined that he a guarantee of success and forgot who it from a non-existence took out, and it is a good director, good history. He thought that will give the brother a gift, having made Arbaaz the “big” director. Shame! ! ! If it is the superstar where it was earlier? More people came to the movie of Akshaya, and be at it as much halls, as well as at “D2″, Akshay quietly would collect the 200th crore!
    When these stars will reach that the director main on a platform! It is very important, especially, when he knows the business.
    And Sohail ceased to remove because all his movies failed. Salman decided to help the brother, then to help the friend? All of them are losers, here and will pull it for itself. No, to help the brother good movies to choose – pull from him ropes. Reminds a hornet’s nest! ?

      You are wrong my friend. Dabangg was actually GHOST DIRECTED by MR. SALMAN KHAN… Abhinav Kashyap’s idea was an offbeat film starring Irrfan Khan. It was later converted to a commercial film.
