Salman graciously accepts 'D.N.J.A.K.' failure


<a href='//www.bollywoodmantra.com/celebrity/salman-khan/' title='Salman Khan' class='article_display_tag' data-id='salman-khan' id='article_tag_data_salman-khan' style='display: inline-block;'><strong>Salman Khan</strong></a>Very few actors are prepared to face facts! Coming to terms with the fact that their film hasn't worked at the box-office could prove to be a thorny task for a majority of actors, especially since most of them are surrounded by the 'yes sir' types. Besides, if the film happens to be a home-production or is directed by
their kin, facing failures could prove to be a frustrating experience.

Though it must've been tough for him to come to terms, Salman Khan has graciously accepted the fact that DIL NE JISE APNA KAHAA, directed by brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri and distributed in Mumbai by brother Sohail Khan [along with Bharat Shah], hasn't worked magic at the box-office.

Most actors do have the standard quote when they discuss the box-office performance of their movies: “Oh, it's been immensely appreciated.” Appreciated, may be, but where is the moolah?

At the PHIR MILENGE bash, Salman [there's a sea-change in his attitude these days; he's radiating extremely positive vibes!] admitted to this writer that the film hasn't worked. “I am feeling bad for Atul. He'd invested so much into this film. Do you think it'll affect him?” he asks me with child-like innocence.

My answer is a blunt yes, but I add that more than financially, it's emotionally going to pinch him. The Fridays in the industry are the most dreaded days and everyone associated with movies knows it too well by now.

Salman agrees that the film would've met with a better fate had it been released after a substantial gap. “It's not a bad film at all,” he defends, “Anyways, there's always the next time.” True, optimism rules!
