Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, all disappointed their fans and critics with their film choices this year. Race 3, Thugs Of Hindostan and Zero had to bite the dust at the box-office. While the first two were completely wiped out by the critics and audiences alike, the SRK-starrer still resonated with quite a few people. However, a lot of articles have been circulating that state the end of the era is near and maybe it would be time for the Khans to hang their boots. Well, the end is far from near.
Every actor goes through a terrible and terrific phase in his or her career. Take Amitabh Bachchan for example, a legendary star who was almost on the brink of oblivion in the 90’s when all his films came crashing down at the ticket windows. He had a meteoric rise post 2000 and proved once a Shahenshah, always a Shahenshah. Akshay Kumar, we guess, still holds the record of delivering 14 consecutive flops, and that too in a span of just three years (1996-1999). And today, he comfortably enjoys eight back-to-back successes. A bad year shouldn’t be equated to a bad future.
The three Khans have some solid films lined-up. Salman has Bharat, Kick 2 and Dabangg 3, SRK has Saare Jahaan Se Achcha and Don 3 (hopefully) and Aamir is all set to play Lord Krishna in his most ambitious and audacious project yet- The Mahabharata. They just need one right role and one right script to prove what box-office can do if Superstardom and Watertight Storytelling meet! The twain can create history!
