Will the success of Salman Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ put pressure on Shahrukh Khan?

This Eid has been very good for the Dabangg dude. Will Lady Luck smile as wide at the King Khan this Diwali? We wonder…

Salman Khan’s latest film with ex-flame Katrina Kaif – Ek Tha Tiger – is turning out to be a record breaking venture. The spy thriller is running to packed houses and has a long weekend to rack up sales. ETT could be one of Sallu’s rare films that not only does exceedingly well at the BO, but also gets good reviews from the critics.

The think tanks at Yash Raj Films, in a bid to capitalise on the euphoria that Sallu creates with every release, have plugged in the teaser of their Shahrukh Khan musical. The 30-second trailer of the untitled Yash Chopra romance didn’t say much, but did manage to get loyal SRK fans into theatres. After a few weeks the Chopras might shift the focus to their SRK-starrer with longer and more revealing trailers and perhaps even the name of the new film. While the Dabangg dude has consistently churned out blockbusters for the past few years, King Khan’s record isn’t as great. Which makes us wonder if Aditya Chopra and team will spend sleepless nights over the marketing strategy for the SRK project.

Shahrukh, however, seems to be unfazed by the pressure that he is reportedly straining under. In a recent interview he said, “I’ve made Rs 100 crore; should I aim for, Rs 150 crore or 200 crores next? If you ask me, ‘Your film has done 100 crores are you happy?’ I’ll say I am not, I did not make everyone feel good. Numbers are like pet dogs, they will follow. But if you follow numbers, I do not think you’ll get far.” Wethinks SRK’s new film with Katrina and Anushka Sharma doesn’t look like a mass entertainer. No doubt it will be a good film, but one that could break Tiger’s record? Naah…

    this bollywoodlife.com always right opposite to srk we all know that.what u told ek tha tiger is success.such a stupid worthless movie.i will also agree ra one is flop.but don 2 crossed 247 cr worldwide and became second highest collection after 3 idoits go and see in wikipedia.srk is not like salman always copies movie from south like bodyguard,wanted,ready back to back.it is not ek tha tiger it is ek tha kutha- salman khan

    • Ranjita

      You are correct.this website always against srk.how the hell you know that the picture will be not a superhit?don’t spread negative publicity.what is any special thing in ett?i did not like the movie,there is no story line.

    • asif

      Salman is the best than any other actor. Raone jaise sar dard movie meine aaj tak nahi dekhi. Ab shahruk ke din lad gaye. aur wese bhi screen par budda lagta hai.

      • muaz

        aur meine ett jaisi sar dard movie kabhi nahi dekhi

      • karan

        salman kaunsa jawaan dikta hai?

        • pizza

          so true he looks like a 50 yr old with swollen face in ETT

      • kartik

        salman to pagal lagta hai………srk you are a king

        • maxx

          srk is the king and bollywood is kingdom

    • prem

      aur maine raone jaisi chakkelu movie nahi dekhi wasise bhi usme woh chakka hi to hai,,, srk bhadwa hai sala pata nahi gauri ko kisne thoka hoga warna srk to chakka hai

      • karan

        Salman hai chakka isilye to usne ab tak shaadi nahi ki

        • nitin

          best ever

      • sayedul abrar

        RA-ONE movie ap jaise backward logo ki movie nahi hay. ap bodyguard etc hi k laeq hain.wahi deka karo.

        • jess

          but you mean by backward different peopele have different choices.I don’t think so Ra-one is really high standard movie it all about technology so it’s commmon in the present time.

          • zain

            srk always do work prefectly and salman ki aaj kal jo bhi movie aarhi hai takrebn bhojporein style ki hai salman khan shaib movie koi aesi dekhao jo lage kay ye dilwale dulhain lejayenge se best hai kuch kuch hota hai dil toa pagal hai uss best hai…..jao salu body hi bano srk jaisi acting tm nahi kr sakte

  • dip

    whtever he has said is quite true to be honest……but this site seems so anti srk,get a life BOLLYWOOD LIFE….

  • Pedro

    I’ve seen ETT in the USA. It was an incomplete storyline poorly executed plus wooden acting. The redeeming factor was the action sequences. Salman looks tired and should really take a rest to address his health issues. ETT is getting all the play in theatres because of the media hype of websites like this and a few others. The film is average not all its cracked up to be. Even Salma’s fans are not all that impressed confirmed by the flat boxoffice collections in single theaters. SRK will do great in his next release

  • viewers

    ett is the worst movie of the year, and next ganta award goes to salman khan and ek tha tiger.
    sorry but i dont like this movie at all, total waste of time and money.

    • common man

      hahahah 1oo crore in 5 days ..ok u go and watch the video game with ur srk sorry so called ra-one

  • dasd

    ANTI SRK SITE

    • bds

      srk has been ruling since 15 yrs wthout any rivals..wo khans wre no where closer to him…just wit few hits two cant catch don….sachin cant b compared wit dravid,gaguly or laxman.. sachin is sachin as he has already earned fame…virat or dhoni cant tak over him..same wit srk also…as per kiiirn concern…his acting only brought 10times fans thn two khans all over world….
      u dont like tom cruise but he will b above brad pit…ok..

  • chats

    ETT is surely a record breaking movie !! YRF will definately have sleepless night with SRK movie coz, imagine an old SRK dating young katrina. It looks horrible though .

    • Ranjita

      how come old salman dating katrina 19 years younger than him?

  • adi

    anti srk site.

  • yas

    where was salman b4 wanted ?he coppy movies same to same. Deffinatly copy hit movie will super dupar hit in bollywood. Aksay was flop last 3 years but he copy housefull2 ,roudy rathor n also he cross 1oo caror in both movie. But srk gives hit movies n still he is coming with more hit. I only wish srk must copy also than salman fans will c what is the benefit by copy.

    • Common man

      hahahah r u joking srk copied don don2 devdas, ra- one mixer of hollywood films………grow up and stop bashing salman and its not salman the producer and directors ae coping the story he is just acting ..any ways even if he is copying than its good u should no that people who have already watched these movies in regional language are still repeatedly watching it and making it super duper hit…so 4 blockbusters 100 crore and one 85 crore in india…can be given by on one man thats salman…

      • salman khan hater

        srk copied movies in the best way not in a stupid way with a stupid action like bodyguard,wanted & ready. YUCK

    • Ridwan

      Don’t dare to compare shahruk with salman…. Salman is always salman… A great human being with big heart… not like ur lesbian shahruk….

  • tapan

    Ek tha tiger is good comapred to bodyguard etc copied mvs…it shd be a blockbuster..bt this site always published anti srk news…if money is only the concern all can make masala entertainer..the teaser looks great and srk will be srk….King will be always be one…only enemies changes by the time…

  • kartik

    salman cannot become a king by giving two or three hit movies which are the copies……….srk is ruling the industry from 15 years so he is the real king……

  • kim

    Salman belifes are not being a king he believes in being humen I think our country need a nice and helpful person raher than king so we should proud on him and need to support and encourge him.

  • Naikirfan17@yahoo.com

  • what is real?

    I have read 50+ comnts.smbody says slmn best n smbody says srk best.but wht is true?i agee that slmn is in form now.ya slmn is giving super duper blockbusters 4 last 4 or 5 yrs like wanted,dabang,ready,bodyguard,ETT.here wanted,ready,bodyguard each of them r south film!!!but where was slmn n u b4 wanted?may aur mrs khanna,heroes,hello,veer,yuvraj,jaan e maan,marry gold,london dreams,god tussi geat ho,kyun ki etc. All of them r flop some of them raised their making cost!!now u r calling slmn ‘king’ when in 2008 akshay gave 4 blockbusters u made him ‘king’.then he was more popular than srk.now whr is king kumer?on the other hand,exept billu,dulha mil gaya,phir bhi dil hay hidustani,asoka srk is bumpering blockbusters after blockbusters,hits after hits 4 last 20 yrs without any down.there is a lot of up and down in salman’s career exept srk.how much award slmn won?srk won 149 awards from 164 nomination.u r talking about being human but srk is already a human,he won an award from UNESCO for charity.which was given by turky president abdullah gul.night will be ended but srk-story will not be ended.
