‘Ek Tha Tiger has content to go a long way’ – Kabir Khan

Filmmaker Kabir Khan says Salman Khan’s presence in “Ek Tha Tiger” will bring in the initial footfalls, but the film’s content and direction will sustain it thereafter.

“I feel the film has stamina to run for a very long time. I hope the film goes way beyond the opening which is dependent on Salman. After that it is me and the film that I have made. I feel it has the strength to go a long way,” said Kabir Khan.

Ek Tha Tiger, releasing Aug 15, is his third directorial venture after “Kabul Express” and “New York”. The movie, in which Salman plays a spy, also features his former lady love Katrina Kaif, making it one of the much-awaited films of the year.

The first look of the film was also widely appreciated. The buzz has led several multiplexes to cash in on its popularity by reportedly hiking ticket prices 10-15 percent.

But there’s little that the director can do.

“That is not something that I can dictate to the multiplexes. They have said it is a standard practice they follow. When they feel a film is much-anticipated and is running during a holiday period or a festive period, they tend to mark up the price,” Kabir said.

“Apparently, some time back (ticket) prices had been brought down, so the 15 percent mark up is just bringing it back to what it was three to four months back.

“So I don’t think it is pumped up as much as it was done for some films a couple of years back.”




  • you ,fool , when their is bahi ,a movie needs not to have good content , to became BB, bahi stardom is enough to make it ATBB,,–

  • salman khan ki film mei achhi content rehna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai…

    his all recent movies are full of cheap action,below d belt comedy,faaltu story and ghatiya remakes…

  • If salman movies are cheap then how come it collects 140+ crores this is wat it matters the most
    Haters can hide asap be4 the arrival of TIGER
    He has already roared

  • Haters why you barking here get out.All Time Blockbuster in Making. Just 5 days left for Tiger, go away otherwise…

  • The cost of the movie including marketing is 80-crores so the first 5-days it will cross 100-crores and next five days 100-crores and as Kabir said the film content is good to run long way so you can add another 100-crores. total 300-crores.
