Superstar Salman Khan feels that lower rate of ticket prices for his last release Jai Ho was a big mistake which led to the film's failure. The film failed to get the expected big opening at the box office, upon its release in January this year.
"An actor wants his next film to be better and larger than their previous film. Either that film can be convincing or sometimes it becomes too much. After Dabangg we made a realistic film ('Jai Ho'), where the hero is trained man but he also gets hurts and falls. But it became a serious film in a way," Salman said in an interview here.
"I think the release time of January (was not good) that time schools start, everyone is just out from holiday mood. And our ticket prices were Rs 250 on weekends and even lower on week days which I think was the big mistake but we did this for our fans. Eventually it is Rs 126 crore ka flop which is fine," he said.
Jai Ho, the first big-budget release of 2014, could not get a bumper start unlike Salman's other films like Wanted, Bodyguard and Dabangg. "I think if you see 'Jai Ho' on television it is the most amazing film that has a message of helping three people, it has family drama and entertainment. But the music did not do well which we thought it was amazing," Salman said.
The 48-year-old actor seems all charged up for the release of his upcoming film Kick, a remake of the Telugu film of the same name. "The plot is of the film attracted me to do it. There are changes in the way that film and our film is made. The plot of their films (South Indian films) are very nice, so we adapt it and make it according to our sensibilities and it does well here," Salman said.
"I cannot do a rom-com and if I do I have to do a film like 'No Entry' and Sooraj's film...I can do such type of films. There is a larger than life genre for me which I enjoy doing," he said.
