Salman Khan's WANTED has hit the bulls eye. It is now into its second week but the first week collections have already ensured a HIT status for this Prabhu Deva directed film. Boasting of the best ever opening collections of a Salman Khan starrer ever, WANTED has thrilled Bollywood fraternity which is now rooting for the 'bad turned good' boy all over again.
Says film maker David Dhawan, Salman's friend who has worked with him in more than half a dozen films, ''Salman Khan always knew when and where to strike. He was always very confident about WANTED and this is the reason why he went all out to promote the film. Forget first weekend collections; it was sheer havoc when Id festivities began. Audience response inside auditoriums was unprecedented.''
WANTED has now completed a trilogy of sorts for 'masala' films. After Shah Rukh Khan's OM SHANTI OM and Aamir Khan's GHAJINI, now Salman Khan has scored in a big way with WANTED which has got raw action-n-drama back in vogue.
