Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan said Monday films from South cinema have been doing ‘really well’ and though every artiste wants to make a good movie, there is no formula that can guarantee box office success. Salman Khan recently came on board to present the Hindi version of Kichcha Sudeepa’s upcoming Kannada fantasy action-adventure film Vikrant Rona.
At a special event of the film, Salman interacted with the cast when actor Neetha Ashok said she was taken aback after she saw that the Bollywood superstar had shared the movie’s trailer on Twitter.
“I’m also presenting the film! I have to do this (promotions). I don’t want to go into losses… South films are doing really well,” Salman said.
At the same time, the 56-year-old actor believes there is no formula to deliver a successful movie. “We all try and make the best film, we want it to reach everyone. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. There’s no formula to this, that something will work 100 per cent,” Salman pointed out.
In recent times, films like Telugu action one like Pushpa – The Rise, RRR and Yash’s KGF Chapter 2 emerged as the biggest hits of the industry, while many Bollywood movies failed to deliver.

The Hindi film industry has so far only seen hits like Gangubai Kathiawadi, The Kashmir Files and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 this year.
Sudeepa said he doesn’t want to ‘generalise’ the success of South films as he believes that if Bollywood didn’t have good work to offer, it wouldn’t have lasted this long.
“A lot of films are made in a year, not every film does well. A couple of films do, a couple of films don’t. That doesn’t mean that we generalise and say it (the industry) is dominating. There are good times for everything. If the Hindi film industry wasn’t doing great films, if it didn’t have great people, how would you sustain for so many years?” Sudeepa stated.
Drawing a comparison with cricketer Virat Kohli, who is currently struggling with form, Sudeepa said it is just a matter of time before things get back on track.
“It’s just a matter of (time)… It’s like Virat Kohli being out of form for a while. Are you going to take away his records? It doesn’t work that way… Every industry is standing by its potential,” Sudeepa added.
