Superstar Salman Khan says film reviewers are entitled to express their personal views about a movie, but they should refrain from belittling the hard work of a film’s team.
The actor, who is awaiting the release of his film Bajrangi Bhaijaan, said that a negative review left the viewers in a dilemma whether to ‘watch the film or not’ and in the end, it was the producer who incurred a loss.
“Such people, who give reviews, should say that they don’t like the movie instead of saying bad things about the movies. Such people don’t influence the movie, but now the ticket prices have also risen and there are some people who follow the review and might not watch the film because of a bad review and because of that we lose that person’s ticket which affects the producer,” Salman said during a radio interview on 92.7 BIG FM.
The Dabangg star is known for his action-filled adventures, woven with music, drama and romance, on the big screen. It is likely that he won’t disappoint his fans this time as well with Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
The Kabir Khan-directed film narrates the story of a man’s journey from India to Pakistan in his endeavour to take a ‘girl without a voice’ back to her country. The film will hit the screens on July 17.
When asked about the surge of media channels and social platforms with reviewers from all age groups, Salman said that they could ‘give him minus rating’, but he wouldn’t let it affect him as he ‘trusted’ his fan following.
“This is our mistake, there are some actors and producers who think that such reviews will affect their movie, but I say that you guys give me minus ratings, in fact don’t even waste ink for writing about my movies, then I will see that my fans watch the movie or not,” said the Kick star.
