What cry babies? What's the point comparing Main Aurr Mrs Khanna screentime with that of No Entry?
Main Aurr Mrs Khanna, Salman is there for initial minutes & appears only in the interval. It's Sohail Khan who takes over. Salman in second half doesn't carry the story forward. It's again from Sohail's perspective. It was clearly a two lead film. Unlike Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, it was Sohail Khan who was given the narrative. Salman got the emotional weight in the third act & he didn't do justice with his performance.
Biwi No.1 again see what's the characterization looked like. Nobody says Kamal Haasan was the main lead in the original. Similarly Anil Kapoor who played him isn't the main lead.
I can take part in this argument if you provide me with proper assessment of "screentime of a character" vs "characterization" itself.
And get this, hit films had Salman's contribution. Flop films though some had his contribution, most others flopped because he couldn't contribute to the extent his roles demanded of him & most importantly, his audience were not happy with the way his characters had shaped up.
Coming to MAMK alone, it was a disaster S people weren't interested in it to give a chance. The ones who did give it a chance, did so for Salman but when they got Sohail Khan instead driving the narrative, they felt cheated. That's what pushed him to realise his worth with Wanted.
