Jai Ho has clearly not been taken very well by the audiences with all the negative responses the movie is garnering, but surprisingly, the collections are humungous. They’ve reached upto 60 crores in just the first weekend. This very mixed response is not just confusing us, but it is confusing Salman Khan as well who stated just that in a recent interview.
“This time we are also confused because the reactions inside the theatres and the collections are not matching up. So it’s a very strange thing” was what he said talking about it.
Salman also thought that people might not have liked Jai Ho as it was not one of his regular entertainment film but one with a serious social message. “We have done something different, maybe people were expecting something like Dabangg, Ready like time pass film to enjoy. Some must have understood that Jai Ho is not that kind of film, this is a serious film with a social message” he said.
But then, the Khan humbly took all the blame and said that if his films fail, it is solely his responsibility and no one else’s by saying, “I will only say that the credit or the blame for my film should come to me and not to anybody else. Perhaps I have failed in bringing in the people.”
