It must be like a log of wood being taken off the shoulders for Bollywood actor Salman Khan. Storm followed after the calm. His Diwali release Main Aurr Mrs Khanna failed terribly at the box office after the success of Wanted. So, the rave reviews on his latest release London Dreams must have relieved him like never before.
The latest we hear is that London Dreams had a poor opening though people in the trade circle expected it to make a good start. It managed to enjoy just 30-40 per cent opening. The collection in single screens is said to be even lower. Unfortunately, it has tough time ahead with Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Jail all set for release.
Salman has a huge fan following. Many were of the opinion that Main Aurr Mrs Khanna failed because of the relatively smaller role that he did. His fans like him to lead from the front like he did in Wanted. So, who knows if his well-crafted role in London Dreams create magic at the box-office in the days to come.
Ajay Devgn is another silent assassin. He was not seen much in the promotions but his performance in the film is said to be wonderful especially in the concert sequences. Asin Thottumkal is another gem of the film. She surely deserves the title Chennai Express.
