Salman Khan is set to release his Eid special Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. The actor was recently in talks with media persons where he expressed his concerns about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and how we should stay safe.
While Radhe is set to release digitally, Salman assured that once the situation gets normalise the film will hit the theatres.
Talking about the revenue of the film, the superstar said, “The box office collection of Radhe will be zero. This will be the lowest ever for a Salman Khan film. Let people be happy or sad with that. It is releasing in very few cinemas in India, overseas also the number of theatres are less than usual. So the box office collection will be very poor.”
While theatre owners were hopeful that Salman will release the film in Cinema halls which will boost their business. The makers settled with a hybrid release looking at the current situation.
Salman Khan apologised to theatre owners. “I apologise to cinema owners who were hoping to earn profits with the release of this film. We waited as long as we could, hoping that this pandemic would end and we would be able to release in theatres all over the country. But that did not happen. We don’t know when things will go back to normal,” he said.
Salman Khan also said, “I know people are disappointed that they will not be able to watch Radhe on the big screen. Some people have booked auditoriums and are planning to screen my film, which I won’t encourage because I don’t want people to say ‘Salman Khan ki picture dekhne gaye aur corona phail gaya’. Once this pandemic is over and theatres reopen, if people like the film, we will try to release it on the big screen.”
