In the recent past, we have seen that Salman Khan has brought to us quite a few mass entertainer movies. His masala movies such as Wanted, Ready and Dabangg have worked wonders with the audiences. However, Salman now feels that this genre of films will die down eventually as they are being overdone.
This space will die totally. I think this was a beautiful format where we had films like Wanted, Dabangg etc. Now everybody has overdone it so much that it might die away. These kinds of films are popular but the creativity is becoming less. It seems the same stuff is happening (every time in these films). I don't know which genre will click now," Salman said in an interview.
"The whole thing where one person beats up 50 people (who fly
around) will remain as this is part of our cinema. But there is a
reason why and how he is beating. Now, the way action is done will
change," he added.
Although Salman has a valid point, we really don't know what the audiences really want. We recently saw the tremendous response that Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express received. With this film, it was pretty evident that people are still crazy for such mass entertainers. Even in the month of October, we have two big masala entertainers - Ranbir Kapoor's Besharam and Akshay Kumar's Boss.
The movies lined up for Salman right now are Jai Ho and Kick. When asked about these two films, Salman said, "Jai Ho will be different kind of film altogether. It has all the ingredients - drama, emotion etc. Kick is also a different film. Again, Sooraj Pancholi (filmmaker) asked me to do a film for them, he gave me the idea and I loved it. It was a great script I had not worked with him since long". His statements about mass entertainers make us wonder if he will stop acting in such films. We also know that he has a crazy fan following and they would love to see him entertain them. As of now, we surely his upcoming film is a masala entertainer. Do come back for more updates on his upcoming movies.
