Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared updates about Salman Khan's film via Twitter.

On the first day, Salman Khan’s big-budget film ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’ underperformed. Salman’s first full-fledged theatrical release on Eid in four years. On Saturday, trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the updates via Twitter. On Day 1, #KisiKaBhaiKisiKiJaan is underwhelming, he wrote… Especially when compared to #SalmanKhan’s #Eid releases from 2010 to 2019… Metros are poor, and mass pockets are marginally better… Today is extremely important for business to grow multi-fold [#Eid]… Friday, Rs 15.81 crore. #KBKJ #IndiaBusiness

Farhad Samji’s ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’ also stars Pooja Hegde, Jagapathi Babu, Bhumika Chawla, Vijender Singh, Abhimanyu Singh, Raghav Juyal, Siddharth Nigam, Jassie Gill, Shehnaaz Gill, Palak Tiwari, and Vinali Bhatnagar.

Previously, Salman released a teaser for Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan. With powerful dialogue, he introduced his character. Pooja Hegde inquires, “Waise aapka naam kya hai (what is your name)?” Salman replies, “Mera koi naam nahi hai, lekin main Bhaijaan naam se jana jata hun (I don’t have any name, but people know me as Bhaijaan)” as shots of him fighting goons play in the background.

Salman had previously addressed the issue of box office failure in Hindi films. Taking a punch at himself, bhaijan jokingly said, “Mere words mujh pe hi bhari nehi padni chahiye. (my words should not bite me later). My film ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’ will release soon. Log ye na kahe ke kya banaye hai. (People should not question me for the kind of films I make).”

Are Salman’s words coming true in practise?
