Salman Khan takes a playful dig at his films being slammed by critics during Dabangg 3 trailer launch, says 'pitegi toh deshbhar mein maarenge log'


Salman Khan, over his career in Bollywood, has managed to attain the title of a mass superstar with the kinds of blockbusters he delivers with each passing year. However, the hugely followed and loved actor has had a not-so-great rapport with the critics of cinemas, considering the nature of his films being masala entertainers. The renowned and reputed critics, leave no chance to observe his films with scrutiny and slam him for showing less of meaningful content. Salman, who has taken all sorts of criticism upon him with open arms, took a dig by himself on his films at the trailer launch of his upcoming film Dabangg 3. The actor, during the event, joked about the script of the film and predicted that in case people don't resonate with it, they should be ready to face criticism from all cinema industries including Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Kannada. Joining him at taking a playful jibe, Sonakshi Sinha, who plays the lead role in Dabangg 3, said if a film is disapproved by critics, it turns out to be a blockbuster. 

"Arey waah, kya story likhi hai. Agar pitenge toh Mumbai mein bhi, Chennai mein, Bangalore mein bhi, deshbhar mein pitegi. Agar log maarenge toh deshbhar mein maarenge," Salman joked. In response to this, Sonakshi added, "Jab critics se pit jate hai tabhi picture super-duper hit blockbuster banti hai." Correcting the actress, the actor said, "Woh main bol sakta hu, tum mat bolo," to which Sonakshi told, "Even I have had that experience."
