Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s latest release ‘Tubelight’ hasn’t done well at the box office, but his brother Sohail Khan who had an important role to play in the Kabir Khan directed film, has said the actor would be “really worried” if his fans and people who pay for the ticket didn’t like the film.
“Salman Bhai would be really worried if his fans and the people, who pay money to watch his film, were not happy. Because, he really is concerned about the ticket-paying audience which must not feel let down at any cost” Sohail said.
He also asked the critics to review the film and not Salman’s life.
“Of course, the critics have every right to feel whatever they think right. And, Bhai accepts that without prejudice or suspicion. But, they should avoid personal comments and barbs aimed at an actor’s personal life. Please review the film, not Salman Bhai’s life” he added.
Defending his brother’s decision to play a ‘weak and dumb’ role, unlike his usual larger-than-life characters which his fans love, Sohail said, all that Salman fans expect out of the actor is his mere presence.
“It is said he just needs to come in front of the camera and stand on the screen to make his fans happy. He could do anything he wants on screen. Or inversely, do nothing at all. Yet, Bhai chose to play this character who is humble, weak and vulnerable. I think it takes a lot of guts to play this atypical hero” Sohail said.
