‘Hate him or love him, you cannot ignore him’; that’s how I ‘d describe the aura called Salman Khan. You just have to acknowledge his presence courtesy his strong personality.
He is busy promoting his upcoming movie, ‘Tubelight’ which also stars his brother Sohail in the lead role. So obviously, while attending many events and amidst the million interviews that he has been giving, the ‘bhai’ of B-town was asked about his opinion about the movie critics that reside all over the place and the effect the movie ratings have on the nature of success of a film.

In one such interview with Huffington Post, he explained, “I genuinely, honestly don’t care. I believe that they’ve no right to take anybody’s hard work down. The fans will decide that, in any case. The box-office will prove it one way or the other. What have you done to earn the right to rip a film apart? On Day 1 of the release, you write some rubbish crap. It destroys films and a lot of hard work that went behind making it. With me, of course, it doesn’t make any difference. And I think they know it all too well. My films are critic-proof. I am telling them now: go give my film minus 100 stars, why just zero. My fans will anyway watch my film and that’s my reward”. He even vented out his feelings about the hit-and-run case that has been a part of his life. “For 20 years. 20 years is a long time, man. It’s a lot of years. It takes a toll on you and your family. The financial toll on our family because of the cases has been huge. When I was a nobody I had nothing. When I become somebody, I got the magistrate court. When I become slightly bigger, I got the High Court, then. And now when I am in this position, I have the Supreme Court.”
His movie is all set for a release on Eid and it’s a moment of celebration for his fans.
