Mumbai, October 4: Bollywood actor Salman Khan is all set to launch a new single-screen theatre chain in India, aptly titled ‘Salman Talkies’, with six screens in Maharashtra to begin with. And it does not stop there. The actor, who is neck deep busy shooting for Kabir Khan’s Tubelight right now, is building a plush private movie theatre for himself along with a sprawling bungalow! He has zeroed in on two locations in Mumbai, one in Bandra and the other in Juhu. Well, now that’s luxury at it its best. Don’t you think so? Mumbai Mirror confirmed this news and reported that Salman Khan is keen to start off his dream theatre project in Maharashtra with a bang in Diwali 2016, with the two major releases Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay. Looks like Bhai is keen to pander to his core audience (the single-screen goers) with this chain of theatres, which will further expand to Uttar Pradesh.

A source reported to Mumbai Mirror, “He will be lending his name to a theatre chain to promote tax-free viewing.As of now, six single screens across Maharashtra have been roped in and more locations are being explored.Tickets for films at his theatres will be available at heavily subsidised rates and free for children. Salman will be launching each screen himself.” Whoa, now that’s definitely a good news to the filmi buffs across the state. Sallu has also done some serious number crunching for his business model, as he wants to challenge the escalating ticket prices in multiplexes. According to the tabloid, Salman Khan said, “If a film has to flop, the effect of the loss should be as little as possible. Jai Ho did a business of Rs 138 crore with tickets priced at Rs 200. On weekdays, the prices were down to Rs 100 but since we didn’t publicise this fact, people said, ‘Arey is that the only business?’ Rs 138 crore is a huge, how many films touch that kind of a figure? Prem Ratan Dhan Payo made Rs 238 crore but since it didn’t make as much money as Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the perception is that it flopped.” Also Read - John Abraham's Satyameva Jayate 2 vs. Salman Khan's Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai on Eid 2021
