Films are made for the audience. In fact, the entertainment industry runs for the audience and only they decide the fate of the films. There are a few actors who are capable to make the film hit on their name but sometimes they also see failure. Let’s talk about Salman Khan, whenever he experimented with cinema, his films tanked at the box office. The actor’s record of experimenting with cinema has been terrible so far. When he tries to experiment, he didn’t succeed. Salman Khan and experimenting cannot go hand in hand and these movies are proof.
Let’s know about films in which the actor experimented and witnessed failure.
Khamoshi – The Musical
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 1996 released film had Nana Patekar and Seema Biswas in special characters. The film did not have Salman in an experimental role, however, it was quite unique in its own way but ended up as one of the biggest failures of 1996.
This 2004 released film was made on a noble subject of awareness that featured Salman Khan, Shilpa Shetty, and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead roles. The film was one of the most disastrous flops of that year. It seems the audience wasn’t ready to deal with the serious subject at that time.
Salman Khan and Rimi Sen starrer released in 2005 was the experiment of the actor. The film tanked at the box office. It was a romantic film with a not-so-happy quotient in which the actor played a mentally challenged character but failed to impress the audience. It proved another example of a failed experiment.
Released in 2010 starred Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Jackie Shroff and Zarine Khan in the lead roles. For Veer, Salman turned a screenwriter but the experiment failed badly. Thanks to Wanted that released a few months after Veer that put the actor back on the track. Veer was a period action film which featured Salman for the first time into a period film of a big scale.
The film released last year but broke Salman’s record of giving hits back to back. In Tubelight, the actor once again tried a different kind of role but viewers made it clear that they are just not interested in him playing such roles. It was a boring ride needs the patience of the audience. The film failed at the box office.
Well, it’s high time after giving so many flops Salman understands this and never experiments with his roles in future.
