Salman Khan’s hugely anticipated movie ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, also starring Katrina Kaif, is all set to release on August 15th.
The expectations surrounding the movie are so high that many expect ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ to surpass the collections of Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Ready’. But the actor said that no actor makes movies to break records but hopes that ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ makes good money.
“Actors don't do movies to break records. The idea is always to make a film with utmost sincerity. Records get made and broken because of statistics. The numbers of theatres that play Bollywood movies globally have increased; the release of films is now very wide. Naturally the returns have increased. Frankly from now on, I want all films to start crossing the 200 crore mark,” he said in an interview with a daily.
Salman Khan, who is reuniting, with his ‘Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya’ and ‘Yuvvraaj’ co-star Katrina Kaif said that the actress has grown a lot since those movies.
“Katrina is a big star now. She has grown in stature. She seeks perfection in everything she does. She practices her dance numbers for two and three days relentlessly. For someone who couldn't speak a sentence in Hindi, she now says her Hindi dialogue almost as well as any of us,” he said.
Even though trio of Khan’s – Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan made their entry in Bollywood long ago, they still rule the box-office.
“It's destiny. I'm grateful to Sooraj Barjatya for 'Maine Pyar Kiya' and so many others who believed in me. I guess all three of us (Aamir, Shah Rukh and I) have been lucky. Sometimes we got good scripts that turned out to be even better films. And at other times, our very ordinary films have done wonders at the box office. But above all, we have God's blessings and have managed a faithful fan following,” he concluded.
