Bollywood superstar and producer Salman Khan has revealed that he expects his upcoming flick, Loveyatri to be a "big hit", but also says that every film and actor has a destiny and the newcomers starring in Loveyatri, Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain, he is confident that their future is “pretty okay.” Um... okay, Sallu Bhai.
The film is produced by Salman, who addressed the media at an event on Wednesday, which was a musical concert celebrating the film’s journey, with Aayush, Ronit Roy, Warina, the musical composer Ranisk Bagchi, and singers Udit Narayan, Palak Muchchal, Darshan Rawal, and Badshah.
Asked about his expectations from the film, Salman said: "We can't expect this film to be a biggest disaster ever, so obviously we all want this film to be a big hit and that's what we wish, but only that Friday will tell us whether this film is hit or not and the leading pair and director of the film is appreciated or not.
"We all have worked really hard to make this film so, it will be very nice to hear positive response from audience."
Salman is launching his brother-in-law Aayush, who is married to Arpita Khan, in Hindi films with Loveyatri.
Is Salman nervous prior to the release of the film?
"What to be nervous about? Every film has its own destiny. He (Aayush) has his own destiny. Warina has her own destiny. I am sure their destiny is pretty okay," he said.
Loveyatri is set during the festive period of Navratri. On this, Salman said that he comes from a secular family and his family celebrates all Indian festivals.
"We celebrate all functions because we just need excuses to celebrate. So, be it birthdays, Teachers' Day, Friendship Day or a Breakup Day... we celebrate any day," he quipped.
"I think that's the way to keep the family together, so we celebrate each and every festival like Holi, Christmas, Eid, Navratri and Diwali."
Loveyatri, releasing on October 5, is a romantic-drama directed by Abhiraj Minawala.
