Salman Khan is often called the king of Box Office in Bollywood. With most of his films doing well at the box office, he desperately wanted Bharat to do well at the box office and turn a super hit film. We see things proving for Salman Khan since Bharat has already entered into 200 Crore club. While the overseas market too has touched 100 Crore making the film to have a total collection of 300 Crore plus movie, which makes Salman Khan a happy man.
But do you know why Salman Khan wanted his film does well and prosper at the box office? Any idea, well, he wanted this for Katrina Kaif as he thought that with Bharat, Kat would get her third big hit film in her career with him. The reason for this wish was that Katrina had a bad phase getting two flops with the other Khans – Zero with Shah Rukh Khan and Thugs of Hindostan with Aamir Khan in 2018. Her back to back films with the named Khans did a bad business at the box office making Salman wish for this desire.
So, Salman Khan wanted Bharat to do well at the box office not for him but for Katrina Kaif. As per the sources close to Salman Khan who also is a good friend of the actor, he said that Salman Khan was worried about Katrina’s career as she got average grossers with the two Khans. Thus to get another average film with him would hamper her credibility in the market. It was Salman Khan only who recommended Katrina to the makers of Bharat as the leading lady when Pee Cee left the film abruptly.
Also, he has been requesting the makers to rope in Katrina opposite him including for Kick 2 and Inshallah. However, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had to reject this idea as the character of the film was written as per Alia, while for Kick 2, Nadiadwala may consider Katrina opposite Salman Khan. This is why Salman Khan has been the favorite of every actress who works with him. Perpahs Kat would be obliged to see this favor getting from Salman Khan.
