Salman Khan set to open ‘Salman Talkies’, a movie theatre for the underprivileged
'Bhai' turns Messiah once again.
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is gearing up for his Eid release ‘Race 3’ which has faced a lot of criticism since it’s trailer was launched on social media. There has been a lot of trolls and memes that were released as the trailer failed to make an impact on the masses.
Salman Khan has been the only plus point in the trailer and the actor is doing everything possible to get the film into the hearts of the audience. Salman has turned lyricist as well as distributor for the film and we can only hope the film strikes the right chords when it is released.
But now, the actor turned producer has another project in mind which will surely make its way into the hearts of the audience.
According to DNA, Salman wants to open his own theatre chain for those who cannot afford to watch movies in theatres. According to Mumbai Mirror report, ‘Salman Talkies’, which has been the actor’s passion project for the last two years is finally materializing with its first establishment in the outskirts of Mumbai.
Salman wishes to start a chain of theatres of which would screen movies tax-free and at subsidized rates for the underprivileged audience. Salman was quoted as saying by Mumbai Daily:
“I had a lot of plans for the theatre chain but it’s taking me longer because I need to be very careful. There are a lot of logistical details involved so that the project doesn’t shut down. But let me clarify, the theatres will not be in Bandra or Juhu, but on the outskirts of Mumbai.”
Salman, after opening the first cinema hall in Maharashtra, would love to expand this project over other states in the next 10 years. He said:
“There are so many things I want to do in the exhibitor and distributor space, and by turning distributor with Race 3, I have taken my first step in that direction. This chain adds another aspect to my portfolio.”
Among his upcoming projects, there are also ‘Dabangg3’ with Prabhudeva and ‘Bharat’ with Ali Abbas Zafar lined up.
