Salman Khan joins the $1 billion club
Regarding the hundreds of millions of rupees being made at the box office, Salman Khan was open and stated, “I think the 100 crore level is going to be the rock bottom presently. For the Punjabi industry, the Hindi sector, and every industry, everything would be $400–$500–$600 extra presently. Even Marathi films are achieving these figures. 100 crore will not be a significant amount. I believe the current bar for a picture should be $1 billion.
Salman makes light of his flicks
Gippy Grewal expressed his hope during the ceremony that his upcoming movie will likewise do well at the box office in light of Salman Khan’s earlier statement. On October 20, his movie Maujaan Hi Maujaan will be released.
Gippy stated, “We used to be amazed when our films grossed between 10 and 15 crores. The last time we were asked if our movie could gross $100 crore, we were at a loss for words. But thanks to God’s grace, everything worked out. If Salman Sir is correct, then a major event will occur.
Salman responded, “Don’t go by what I say brother, go by the movie as my predictions about by own films don’t seem to be working,” “Mere pe mat jana bhai, picture pe jana, kyuki mere khud ke predictions meri films pe nahi chal rahe.”
According to a report by Sacnilk.com, his most recent film, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, made almost 132 crore rupees net in India. A few months after Salman gained notoriety for his role in Pathaan, it was released in April.
