If we bring the trailers of Hollywood movies in the discussion then no movie comes close to Salman Khan’s movie despite registering a colossal number of views. Like the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, which was viewed a record 99 million times but only 6.9 lakh viewers hit the like button. Another on the list is the trailer of Suicide Squad that registered 6.4 lakh likes in 83 million views.
It may be seen as another show of incredible share of movie audience that India boasts on the global platform. Bollywood produces more than 1,000 movies in a year and the reason for such number of releases is the huge demand among the movie goers. Hindi movies not only enjoy viewership in India but they have avid followers all around the globe, especially Salman Khan who has a significant number of followers abroad.
