Salman Khan's upcoming film, Tiger Zinda Hai is in tremendous buzz and is expected to break all the exisiting records at the box-offic.e However, his previous release, Tubelight, helmed by Kabir Khan, proved to be a debacle at the box office to everyone's surprise.
In his recent interview to Pinkvilla, Salman talked about Tubelight failure and said, "I have some other connect with my audience. It is not the action connect, it is something different."
Salman Gives An Instance Of Tere Naam
He further added, "I did Tere Naam. It was a big hit. However, it was a big hit for its first half, not for the second half. People didn't want to see me like that in the second half."
Tubelight Wasn't An Apt Release For Eid
"For example, people are watching Tubelight on television, but they didn't watch it on screen especially at the time like Eid, Diwali or Christmas when you want to go out and enjoy yourselves and you go to the theatres all dressed up, to enjoy, to whistle, to throw chillar (change) and then in the first five minutes you start crying."
Audience Don't Want To See Me Crying
"They don't want to see me crying onscreen. You are just thrown off because that is not what you expect from the movie. Throughout the promotions, I kept on saying that if you are expecting some maar daadh (action), then DO NOT go and watch the movie."
Salman Further Adds..
"I am the only one who says DON'T go if you are expecting this. Even in Tere Naam, throughout I said that it is a loser character, go see the film it is superb but the hero's character doesn't follow at all."
