After turning distributor-lyricist for Race 3, Bollywood’s bhai Salman Khan is planning to start his own theatre chain – Salman Talkies.

According to Mumbai Mirror report, ‘Salman Talkies’ has been his passion project for last two years which is finally materializing with its first establishment. However, the 52-year-old actor also said that the theaters will not be set up in the posh corners of Mumbai such as Bandra or Juhu but on the smaller towns or outskirts of Mumbai. The actor said that ticket range should be different on weekends and weekdays that is around Rs 120-150 and Rs 250, respectively.

The main objective of the talkies it to make movies available to all at affordable rates. Salman said that while he has been planning to work on this project for a while, it has taken him longer than expected due to a few logistical delays.

The ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ actor had earlier talked about how the tickets are so expensive in the multiplexes that cost around Rs 400 to 500. He believes that the box-office collections can only be improved by expanding in smaller regions by building more theaters.

While the first theatre of Salman Talkies will be near Mumbai, the superstar plans to take it nationwide in the next decade or so.

The actor will also be distributing free tickets to children from underprivileged backgrounds.

Salman Khan also turned into a distributor after the original distributors of the film, Eros International dropped out. In addition, he will also distribute brother-in-law Aayush’s debut film (the Abhiraj Minawala-directed Loveratri).

Salman had always led the entrepreneurship bandwagon with his ‘Being Human’ collection, which includes tees, shirts, trousers and many more.  Salman Khan his first ‘Being Human’ store for clothing in India on January 17, 2013.

Mandhana Retail has licensing agreement with the actor’s Being Human Foundation to design, manufacture, retail and distribute clothing lines under “Being Human” trademark.

On the professional front, besides Race 3, Salman will be next seen in ‘Bharat’ opposite Priyanka Chopra and Disha Patani.
