It’s already a known fact that Salman Khan’s last release ‘Jai Ho’ underperformed at the box office, well, Khan has labelled the film a “flop”.

He said that the lower ticket prices for the film affected the status of the film at the box office.

In an interview with India Today, Khan said, “An actor wants his next film to be better and larger than their previous film. Either that film can be convincing or sometimes it becomes too much. After Dabangg we made a realistic film (‘Jai Ho’), where the hero is trained man but he also gets hurts and falls. But it became a serious film in a way.”

“I think the release time of January (was not good) that time schools start, everyone is just out from holiday mood. And our ticket prices were Rs.250 on weekends and even lower on week days which I think was the big mistake but we did this for our fans. Eventually it is Rs.126 crore ka flop which is fine,” he said.

Khan was not impressed with the film’s opening as it was much lower than his previous blockbusters ‘Wanted’, ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Dabangg 2’. He will next be seen in ‘Kick’ next weekend.
