MUMBAI: Salman Khan is perched at the top of the ladder as he scores a perfect ten at the box office. The actor’s Wanted released last weekend and the response has been more than what expected the film would do. But the complete masala film reminiscent of the style of Manmohan Desai has been a huge hit with Salman fans and Eid celebrations in the Khan household certainly has been brighter and bigger this year.
Khan tells Businessofcinema.com, "I have a very steady fan following, a large part of it in Mumbai and they will go to see any film of mine. They are simple people and they like the film story to unravel in a simple narrative. Films like Tere Naam and Garv have done well largely because of my fans."
Wanted is something Khan needed badly in his kitty. The actor has a good line up of films coming up and a good start to the year is always something every actor wants. Post the release of Wanted, there is Main Aurr Mrs Khanna with Kareena Kapoor and London Dreams with Ajay Devgan and Asin.
Khan also has made many changes in his career. The actor, who preferred to give new directors a break, is still doing that but has also started working with big names. Vipul Shah is one big name that Khan has associated himself with and Shah has been very happy with his casting.
Khan, in the recent past has also given vent to his creative side… be it painting or scripting. The actor has written the story of Veer, which is currently under production, directed by Anil Sharma (Gadar).
Films, television and creative pursuits, Khan has been keeping himself occupied. And whatever innings he has chosen to play, the actor has excelled himself in.
