While giving interviews to the journalist on March 20, Salman Khan reacted to his web debut as saying, “This type of content is not my thing. I don’t want to this as of now. My contents are majorly like ‘Hum Aap Hai Kaun’, yes makers have approached me for the web series, but I said no to them.”
When he was asked about ‘Tubelight’ which did not do well at the box office and had sparked a hilarious meme on social media, Salman said, “Tubelight was not meant for Eid release, because it was a serious film, not a celebratory film. And people got emotional when they came out if the theatre. I would have worked even better on a normal release.”
It is to be noted that Shah Rukh Khan has apparently given a nod to a web series with the same international streaming platform with which his production Red Chillies Entertainment is producing Bard Of Blood featuring Emraan Hashmi in the lead role. Talking about the series, the same is political espionage thriller and it is based on Bilal Siddiqi’s book by the same name.
“The series that Shah Rukh has decided to do is a thriller. Like Bard Of Blood, it will be produced by his banner. The subject has excited him so much that he has decided to not only produce it but also act in it,” the source told DNA.
