Salman Khan explained how 100 crores shouldn’t be a benchmark for films released in the present scenario.

Salman Khan is the biggest star of Bollywood. The actor is not only known for his larger than life films but also his views on certain topics. The actor who was at the trailer launch of Gippy Grewal’s Punjabi film Maujaan Hi Maujaan made an interesting statement where he claimed that ‘100 Crore Club’ is a rock bottom now.

In a clip that was shared by a fan of Salman Khan, a host asked the actor, “Talking about the 100 crore club, you are the poster boy of that. How do you feel Punjabi films are also on that mark, on that journey?” Salman Khan promptly answered, “I think the 100 crore mark is going to be the rock bottom now. Everything would be 4-5-600+now for the Punjabi industry, Hindi industry, every industry. Even Marathi films are doing these numbers. 100 crores is not going to be a very big deal. I think the benchmark should be 1000 crore for a film right now.”

The much-awaited trailer of Gippy Grewal, Binnu Dhillon, Karamjit Anmol and Tanu Grewal starrer Maujaan Hi Maujaan was released earlier on Thursday. The upcoming Punjabi film has also received support from Bollywood since Salman Khan graced the trailer launch with his stellar presence.

In a video shared by the popular paparazzo handle Viral Bhayani, Salman Khan can be seen walking on the red carpet for the trailer launch of Maujaan Hi Maujaan. The Ek Tha Tiger actor donned a dark green shirt, that he paired with washed out dark yellow denim jeans with noteworthy patterns. The actor who was accompanied by Gippy Grewal, obliged the paps by stopping and striking poses with a subtle smile on his face.

The film which is slated to release on October 20th has been helmed by Smeep King. It is touted to be a ‘blind, deaf and dumb’ comedy. The story and the screenplay has been scripted by Vaibhav and Shreya and the music has been handled by Avvy Sra and Kulshan Sandhu along with Jatinder Shah who designed the background score and the title track.

Salman Khan will be next seen in Tiger 3 alongside Katrina Kaif. It’s slated for a Diwali release.
