Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s most anticipated film ‘Tubelight’ released on Friday and it got mixed reviews from audience as well as critics. Speaking about the rave reviews the movie received from the critics, Salman said he is pleased that the critics didn’t give a minus rating to film. He also mockingly said that he’s happy that the critics were really generous while rating his movie as he was expecting minus 3 and minus 4.
“The critics were really good. I was expecting minus 3 and minus 4 but they gave 1, 1.5 apparently, so i am very pleased,” said Salman at an event where his “Being Human” joined hands with PVR for an initiative.
About the feedback about his film, Salman said: “As per reports people are saying they can not see ‘Bhai’ (Salman) crying. So I asked, are they (audience) laughing and the answer was “no, they are crying”. So I said don’t worry about it.”
“As it is an Eid release, people have preconceived notions and plans to throw coins, sing and dance at the cinema hall. So they have gone to watch a certain film but get to watch another film. This film is not of a kind which you watch with your buddies as you will not get an opportunity to dance or have fun. It is a very emotional film. Even an emotionless, stone hearted person will get tears in his eyes. So this is an emotional film to be seen with parents, grand parents and entire family.” He further added.
Asked about mixed reviews the film is getting, the “Dabangg” Khan said: “I got so many text messages, saying that they got emotional watching the brothers dancing on the song. So we are preparing audience for a beautiful, simple, emotional film about brothers. As far as reviews are concerned, every film has mixed reviews.”
Produced by Salman Khan productions, “Tubelight” is directed by Kabir Khan, who has earlier given hit films like “Ek Tha Tiger” and “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”. The film also stars Sohail Khan and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu along with child artiste Matin Rey Tangu.
