Salman takes a dig at box office dud 'Besharam'
Looks like Salman Khan is at it again. Ever since the ongoing season of the star’s reality show Bigg Boss has kicked off, Salman has been spotted in a rather jolly mood while filming the episodes of the show. And after taking a dig at a slew of his contemporaries, the latest actor who seems to have earned Salman’s ridicule is Ranbir Kapoor.
And Ranbir is not new to the club, as the star had also referred to the actor during the launch event for the show, calling RK, ‘Woh naya ladka…” However, the makers did not air the portions where Salman took a dig at Ranbir’s latest release Besharam and the debacle around it.
It was during a casual exchange of banter with guests on the show, Jaaved Jaaferi and Sharman Joshi that the incident occurred. Says a source from the sets, “The two actors had come to promote their new film, War Chodd Na Yaar. Jaaved told him that the critics had appreciated the movie.”
Those words apparently provided Salman with fodder to unleash his witty side and he burst out laughing. The source adds, “Sharman reminded him how 3 Idiots had received three-star rating, yet it went on to break box office records. Salman retorted saying, ‘meri filmon ko toh itna bhi nahi milta.
Abhi Beshram release hui, usko bhi 1.5 stars mila and after box office collections (were made public), critics decided to deduct that one star as well.” Insiders say the conversation drew a lot of bemused looks from crewmembers. The official spokesperson of the channel rubbished the rumours.
