Salman Khan – the name that spells box office disaster in Bollywood.
Salman Khan – the name that means bad luck in Bollywood.
Salman Khan – the name that turns away audiences in Bollywood.
Salman Khan – the name that heralds crappy movies in Bollywood.
Salman Khan – the name that comes last among the Khans in Bollywood.
Folks, for the umpteenth time in recent years, a Salman Khan movie has fared miserably at the U.S. box office.
No surprise, eh. After all, it’s a Salman Khan movie.
In what must be a shameful moment to this aging, balding, fading star, U.S. movie-goers have decisively shown the middle finger to Salman Khan’s trashy movie Wanted, a remake of the Tamil/Telugu movie Pokiri.
A hideous nightmare with little to recommend it, Wanted is the third Salman Khan movie to bite the box office dust in recent years.
How low can Salman Khan’s movies go?
Wanted opened at #33 for the September 18-20, 2009 weekend at the U.S. box office with an average gross of $3,062.
By the way, the Rani Mukerji-Shahid Kapoor film Dil Bole Hadippa did far better (please see below table) than Wanted.
Here’s how Wanted fared at the U.S. box office in the opening weekend compared to some prominent Bollywood films:
