It is hard not to respect AB after watching this video. What an amazing story of being on the top and then being bankrupt and then again getting back on the top.
Great actor was not able to become great businessman. Sometimes it is better to be an employee and earn as much money as possible.
Kapil Sharma also tried to become businessman and produce movie with his own money.
Firangi was made on a budget of Rs 25 crore, but sadly could rake in only about Rs 10 crore at the box office. Kapil’s performance in the film was slammed outright, and called “amateurish”. […]Kapil produced the film too and this left him severely jolted. Interestingly, there were rumours that Dhingra had pushed Kapil to invest more in the film and its marketing campaigns.[..] Firangi’s dismal performance sent Kapil reeling back into depression. He began cancelling shoots for his Kapil Sharma show again, and even backed out of Agenda Aaj Tak 2017 event. His close associates reasoned that his last-minute backout was because of the poor response to Firangi. Over the past one year, Kapil seems to have suffered from mental and physical illnesses, and his raging controversies have just spurred him on further. Perhaps had Firangi worked at the box office, Kapil might have been restored to his comedy throne, and things could have been better for him today.–India Today:
It’s been a year since Kapil is back on his show which is now produced by Salman Khan and all is good.
Business is hard.
