Salman Khan’s latest flick Tubelight surprisingly failed to fare well at the box-office and distributors of the film suffered huge losses owing to this.
Reportedly, several producers and distributors were demanding a refund from Salman. It is being learnt that Salman has agreed to bear all of it and refund the money to the distributors, The Indian Express reported.
Confirming the report, trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted:

Directed by Kabir Khan, Tubelight is a family movie which focuses on the 1962 Indo-China war drama starring Chinese actor Zhu Zhu and Sohail Khan.
Salman had earlier told PTI, “As it is an Eid release people have preconceived notions (about the film) as they throw coins, dance, sing in the cinema halls. They have gone to watch a certain film but get to watch another film. It is a very emotional film. Even an emotionless, stone hearted person will have tears in his eyes. So this is an emotional film to be seen with parents, grandparents and entire family.”
The movie has garnered about Rs. 114.50 crore so far at the Indian Box Office.
