Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s recently released movie 'Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai' though became one of the most-watched movies released on the OTT platform- Zee5 with Zee’s pay-per-view service, ZeePlex, but it ‘a kind of’ crashed hopes of Sallu Bhai fans and movie lovers.
As per movie critics and audience, the movie scripted another history and got added to the list of flops from Dabangg Khan. Salman has several records of ruling the box office with his movies and especially those released on Eid. However, recently few of his movies are not doing well. After Jai Ho, Race 3 and Dabangg 3, Radhe is being counted among the flop movies of the 'once upon a time' box office ruler.
Movie watchers have lashed out at Salman for wasting their money and time and blamed him for being overconfident with his projects. Taking some online reviews into account, it seems the film lacks a story and the entire script is inconvincible. Though, Randeep Hooda playing the antagonist in the movie was highly appreciated for his character and performance. The film lacks a perfect direction and popular choreographer Prabhudeva helming this movie was not spared by haters.
Though Salman is yet to react to Radhe’s reviews, he recently expressed his disappointment over a certain section of viewers. The Kick actor even lashed out at people participating in the unlawful dissemination of his latest released movie. He warned them that they could land in trouble soon with the cyber police for pirating the movie and streaming it on other video platforms.
Salman said, despite being reasonably priced at Rs 249, some viewers have downloaded the film illegally and have shared it on different platforms. Nevertheless, action will be taken against such people, he added.
Earlier, Salman had apologized to the theater owners for not being able to release the film on the big screen in view of the pandemic restrictions. The movie released digitally in India on May 13 after getting delayed by a year.
‘Disgusted’ fans and movie watchers even gave a down thumb to lead actress Disha Patani and veteran Jackie Shroff.
Well, all have to wait to watch Salman’s expression and reaction over the negative reviews for Radhe. Certainly, considering the performance of his latest movies in a row, it can be said the career of the ‘once upon a time’ box office ruler is going down the hills!
Salman’s Cold War With Shah Rukh Khan Continues Unabated!
Apart from his career, Salman is infamous for his popular brawls in his personal life. Apart from the media and several other lead actors in the industry, Salman’s ugly brawl with Shah Rukh Khan is a story to remember. It seems the cold war between the two superstars is yet to end!
Movie watchers are well aware of the 2007 blockbuster movie 'Chak De India' starring Shah Rukh in the lead as a hockey coach. The film went on to become a milestone for SRK and the movie garnered much appreciation from all and won several awards and critical acclaims. Everyone may not be aware that Yash Raj banners’ first choice for portraying the character of the Hockey coach was Salman and not SRK.
However, things didn’t go well and Salman denied the offer after which the Om Shanti Om actor bagged the role and the rest is history, as they say. As per a report published in The Indian Express, Salman had said, “I left it because even Shah Rukh Khan should be part of a few great films.”
He later added that “When I was offered Chak De, my image was totally different as I was doing Partner and all those kind of films. My only thing in Chak De was that my fans would expect me to wear a wig and win the match for India which would not go for the film. That was not my genre at that point of time. It was a more serious kind of film.”
Well, SRK didn’t leave any comments over such a statement.
Though things didn’t go down well between them both for few years after the 2008 incident at Katrina Kaif’s birthday party where Salman and Shah Rukh reportedly got engaged in a fistfight, later on, at multiple occasions, the duo was seen together. The duo claimed there was no issue between them and they share a good bond till date.
