Bhaijaan is ready to shoulder the blame for Tubelight's failure

If there's one thing we never imagined in our wildest dreams, it is to see a Salman Khan film bomb at the box office. But with his latest outing, the Kabir Khan directorial Tubelight, this was precisely the case. The film only managed to collect a meagre Rs 114.50 crore at the Indian box office, which is terrible by Bhaijaan's standards. And this is a shocker for both his fans and his distributors. But Bhaijaan being Bhaijaan, he has, we hear, decided to share the losses of all his distributors and even refund their money.

According to reports, both Salman and his greatest advisor, his father Salim Khan, apparently sat down with all the distributors for a meeting on Saturday at their Galaxy Apartment residence in Bandra, and unanimously agreed that the Khans would shoulder the responsibility of the loss and decided to refund the money they lost in the process of distribution.

Trade analyst Komal Nahta took to Twitter to confirm the same, saying, “Salman Khan has agreed to refund monies to distributors to make up for losses in Tubelight. A lovely gesture. That’s being human!”

In an interview to Spotboye, Salim Khan said, “Tubelight is still running and paise aa rahen hain. When it all ends, and we look into the final accounts, we will decide how much we can share the losses suffered by the distributors.”
