Tubelight Failure: Salman to Compensate for the Losses
Who ever imagine this to be the fate of Tubelight!
Much to everyone’s surprise, Salman Khan’s film, Tubelight, didn’t live up to its exaggerated hype. After Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger, fans were expecting fireworks from the Salman-Kabir duo, but left the cinema slightly disappointed.
The film didn’t fare as expected at the box office, and according to Pinkvilla, distributors incurred huge losses following the release of the film. Many wondered if Salman would step in to help them recover, and if reports are to be believed, the superstar did just that.
A source revealed that a meeting that took place of Saturday (July 8), involved distributors asking Salman (who was co-producer) for some sort of a compensation. He went on to say, “Salim Khan was also present at the meeting, and Salman has agreed to compensate them for their losses." Having said that, the compensation amount has not been disclosed yet.
Salim Khan went on to confirm the news to a tabloid saying, “When a distributor suffers a loss, the producer needs to show some responsibility and share the burden. We, too, have done the same thing. We met a few of them and are trying to find a middle ground. We will pay back the distributors.” Now that’s a sweet gesture!
The supporting father went on to say, “We all have to work with each other in the future. So, it's good that like-minded people come together and make a decision, which acts as a win-win situation for both the makers as well as the distributors."
While hope this settles soon, with everyone satisfied, who ever knew that the expected blockbuster would land into such a situation to begin with! Thanks to the excitement of Salman’s upcoming, Tiger Zinda Hai, fans will soon forget Tubelight, and move on to hopefully greener pastures.
