Can Tubelight surpass Dangal and Baahubali 2’s box office collection and surprise fans? Fans on social media are already speculating that Salman Khan’s Tubelight might trump Aamir Khan’s Dangal and SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 at the box office. Salman holds different views though. The star, who has delivered some of the biggest blockbusters in recent past, doubts that Tubelight will break Baahubali 2’s records. He has his own reasons and logic. In an interview to Firstpost, Salman said that he doubts his film will break Baahubali 2’s record but he doesn’t feel the pressure.

“I doubt that Tubelight will break Baahubali 2’s record because the latter is one of the most freakish films that has been made. Hindi film-goers lapped up the film despite watching a dubbed version of it. It is because of the Hindi cine-goers that they have got these numbers. But as long as nobody loses money, I am fine. I don’t feel the pressure,” the actor was quoted in the report.

Salman who is currently on a promotional spree also said that he still gets nervous before the release of his film. “Yeah, but for different reasons. You do a film, you put in so much of hard work. That’s okay, but the reason that you have signed the film is that you think it will be a sure short hit. Now, the film releases and it is a flop, that means your thinking has gone all wrong, ” the actor told indianexpress.com.

Tubelight will hit theatres on June 25.

      Now Khans want to divide indian cine-goers by hindi and non-hindi. They can go to any level to save their position and to act for more 20 years. By the way i am from Telangana i watch both bollywood films and Telugu films in fact any indian movies.

            I dont think bollwood is king or queen of Indian cinema. It is just that bcos north indian population is more it has more viewers for bollywood movies. Bollywood movies rarely perform good in southern states compared to the respective regional films of the south indian states. Bollywood is just confined to the hindi speaking/ knowing population. What Baahubali did is historical that no bollywood or other regional fims has done till now. Salman Khan films wont achieve what Bahubali did thanks to his copy cat films (remake of south movies and recent tubelight taken from Litte boy). His movies run bcos of his star power not bcos of content, so his star power cannot overpower baahubali 2. I respect Aamir Khan each time his films bring a new flavor and one can go blindly watch his movies no need to listen to critics for review. The very fact is proven by what Dangal has achieved in China, it just says that quality matters to cross borders not star power. N
