Salman Khan Hopes The Audience Considers Radhe As ‘Money Well Spent’
After a really long wait, Salman Khan starrer Radhe finally made it to the theatres and the OTT platforms on May 13. As promised, Eid was made special for his fans, who were quite eager to see the star on the screen. While many loved the film, a section of the audience slammed Khan for making the film. Radhe received quite some backlash from people, but it looks like Khan is unfazed by it.
Khan has earlier told the media that he has worked harder on Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai than on any other film, and hopes that the audience finds it worth the money that they have spent on the ticket. In a new BTS video of the film’s action, the actor is seen saying, “We need to give them (the audience) an event. We need to see that when they come out of the theatre, they think money is well spent.”
He added in Hindi, “Faith hai. Picture ka result kya hoga baad mein… Humne sabne hit hi picture banayi (We have faith in the film, and we believe we’ve made a hit film), to the best of our abilities, and more this time, given it our very best. Khoon, pasina baha diya, aur aise time par release kar rahe hain jo ki difficult time bhi hai (We’ve spilled blood and sweat on this film, and we’re releasing at a very difficult time). Humne bohot koshish ki hai, aur ummeed hai ke sabko yeh film pasand aaye (We’ve tried very hard, and we hope that everyone likes the film).”
Earlier, writer Salim Khan, father of Salman Khan, admitted that Radhe ‘isn’t a great film at all’. He told Dainik Bhaskar, “The film prior to this, Dabangg 3, was different. Bajrangi Bhaijaan was good and totally different. Radhe is not a great film at all, but commercial cinema has a responsibility that every person can get money. From artists to producers, distributors, exhibitors and every stakeholder should get the money. The one who buys the cinema must get the money. Due to this, the cycle of cinema-making and business goes on. On this basis, Salman has performed. Stakeholders of this film are in advantage. Otherwise, Radhe is not that great a film.”
Radhe, also starring Disha Patani, has a 1.8/10 score on IMDb. The film is directed by Prabhudeva, the film also starred Randeep Hooda, Jackie Shroff, Gautam Gulati and Sangay Tsheltrim. The film released on Zee5 in India.
