Salman Khan explains the reason of the success of films like Baahubali.
The Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has become a guarantee of blockbuster movies in the Indian film industry. With his films like ‘Wanted,’ ‘Ready,’ ‘Dabangg,’ ‘Bodyguard,’ ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and his latest release ‘Sultan,’ the actor has given some of the biggest superhits of the industry.
But breaking all his records, in fact not only his, but all the Bollywood records, it was the south superstar Prabhas’ Baahubali 2 which scaled the box-office so high, that it has now set another level of benchmark for the B-town films.
But Salman Khan has his own opinion on the massive success of the film. In a conversation with DNA After Hrs, the actor says, ”I will tell you why numbers have become such a big thing. The most amazing thing about Baahubali’s success is that the Hindi audiences are so accepting. They have made a Telugu film so large, even though they do not know south heroes apart from three or four of them.”
Talking about the loyalty of the South Indian audience towards their stars, he says, ”South audiences know us there; yet, our films do not do that volume of business because their fans have an extraordinary sense of loyalty to their actors. Fan following is very strong — if there is a Kamal Haasan fan, then he will be a Kamal fan forever; Rajinikanth fan will be a Rajinikanth fan for life.”
He added on saying, ”We have piracy here; one should try indulging in piracy there, fan clubs wouldn’t allow it. Whether a politician or the underworld does it, they don’t give a dam*; they will fight it.”
Salman is currently busy in promoting his upcoming film ‘Tubelight’ which will be hitting the screens on June 23, in the festive season of Eid.
