Recently, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga and actor Shahid Kapoor had slammed the critics for criticizing their film, Kabir Singh and had felt that critics were too harsh while reviewing the film. Now, Salman Khan too has taken the same route and has slammed his critics, saying some would even give his films negative ratings.

The actor, whose last release Bharat opened to mixed reviews, said critics can write whatever they want but “don’t be irresponsible”.

Despite doing massive business at the box office, Salman Khan’s films are usually panned critically. But the actor says he is unfazed by the criticism. “It doesn’t matter what’s being said about my films,” Salman said in an interview with Filmfare.

“Some will accord it 5 stars. Some will give it minus ratings. These people have never made a film themselves. And those who have, well, unki film itni buri tarike se piti hai (their films failed disastrously).

“Don’t make fun of someone’s work. Let the audience decide. Let the fans go to the theatres at least. Even if 15 per cent of the audience relies on their reviews, the business gets affected by that much percentage. Maine Pyaar Kiya was made in one crore and eleven lakhs. It was a big budget film at that point. Today the smallest film is made in a budget of at least 25 to 30 crores. You need to recover that,” the actor said.

This comes after actor Shahid Kapoor took a jibe at critics after his latest release Kabir Singh got negative reviews. Kabir Singh, when it released on June 21, was panned by critics for “glorifying” misogyny and “normalising” violence against women in the name of love.

Many pointed out that Kabir didn’t suffer enough for his actions in the movie, as the film ends on a happy note with him getting the love of his life.
