MUMBAI: Dabangg should make 10 times more money than 3 Idiots, a gracious Aamir Khan said at a party thrown by his friend Salman Khan to celebrate the success of the cop comedy.
“I am very happy that Salman’s Dabangg was such a big success. That’s why I have come to give him a hug and congratulate him. I would always pray that his film makes 10 times more than what 3 Idiots did,” Khan told reporters at the success party of the film held at Vie Lounge Sunday night.
The film revolves around the life of a corrupt cop Chulbul Pande, played by Salman Khan and reports say that in two weeks, Dabangg has done a business of INR1.16 billion net and the third week has opened well in the single screens.
The party was for the cast, crew and close friends, says actor-turned-producer Arbaaz Khan, who is basking in the glory of the grand success of his first production venture. “This is a celebration party for the cast and crew and some of our very close friends,” he said. This was Abhinav Kashyap’s first film as director and he is also very happy with the success. “I am in seventh heaven,” he said. Dabangg’s star, Salman Khan also made a brief appearance and said, “Thank you so much. I am very happy.”
When Malaika Arora Khan, whose item number “Munni Badnaam” became a huge hit, was asked if she had expected her husband Arbaaz’s debut production to be a record breaking hit, she said, “No one can ever predict the fate of the film beforehand, but of course, we pray for its success. The magnitude of response and the collections of the film are overwhelming.”
Among the guests were director David Dhawan and he said, “This is the biggest hit of Salman. He is outstanding and everyone knows that, after watching the film I was quite sure that it would be a big hit.”
Other guests at the event included Chunky Pandey, Sonu Niigaam, Subhash Ghai and Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
