Salman Khan, who is currently shooting for Prabhudheva's Dabangg 3 announced the wrap up of Maheshwar schedule for Dabangg 3 in Madhya Pradesh. While bhai fans wait impatiently to see his kickass cop avatar on the big screen, the actor has a thing or two to say about his professional line. Talking about the ever ongoing tug of war on the big screen among the three Khans, namely himself, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan, Salman in an interview with DNA spoke about the movies the three Khans have done last year which had coincidentally all faced big backfires namely, Thugs of Hindostan, Zero, and Remo D’Souza’s Race 3. 

 “It is not as if Aamir or Shah Rukh are choosing bad or worse films. There are times when the movies I’ve chosen, to the best of my knowledge, haven’t worked. And then one film works and you’re back. SRK is a legend, as is Aamir. A bad movie here or there may happen, but they will always come back’’ Salman said.

‘’I’m surviving on mediocre talent and luck. Actually, I don’t know what I’m surviving on, but I’m surviving,” he said, adding that he is aware of his ups and downs, but is grateful for the rock solid fanbase he has built over the years. Salman pointed out that Tubelight, the only recent film of his that is considered to be a bonafide flop, made Rs 110 crore domestically. Repeating a theory he has offered before, the actor said, “We thought that Tubelight (same combination of Kabir Khan and me) will be a beautiful film, after our much-appreciated superhit, Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015). But for an Eid release, the public wanted to see something happy. In Tubelight, they all cried. They were like, ‘What the hell! You’ve ruined Eid!’. They went into depression’’ he added.

Salman meanwhile has two anticipated movies lined up. He will be seen in Bharat on Eid and Dabangg 3 in December.
