I just want them contributing to cinema. Don't really care for box office. Films to remember by. Just not numbers as numbers are meant to be forgotten or someone else to surpass. To add on,
All I want Salman Khan & Shah Rukh Khan is to be thorough professionals in selecting their roles. Salman Khan got that attitude & instinct right barring couple of wrong choices.
To be more clear, Salman Khan should avoid is bad habit of "lack of effort". The way he has given his best to his films this decade, such carelessness will not make him look good on screen which exactly what happened with Race 3 & Ready. Infact Race 3 was a failure at it's inception & he greenlit the project to please his loyal people which is the same mistake he did last 2 decades & it is the same mistake which he promised to never make again this decade. It is this conviction that made him the number 1 Megastar he is. So all I want him is to remember that. 2 hit songs + 2 expensive action scenes for a mediocre script is enough to get a Hit theory won't work anymore. If he finds a half baked script, he better take the right decision rather trying this theory in vain just to satisfy the ego & his commitment to others.
In case of Shah Rukh Khan, he knows which film works & which film doesn't. A knowledge he seems to have locked away this entire decade. I as an audience do not care for how big RCE grows & what achievement his vfx company earns. If he is putting all the efforts on a film that is destined to fail from the go then it's not just stupidity but arrogance that eventually ends up cheating the audience. (This applied for Salman Khan & Aamir Khan too.) So, Srk should stop cheating himself first in the name of vfx. That alone cannot save a damp script. You make your team work to come up with an average script & you can save it with your performance. Performance not vfx or grand scale the film is shot.
In much simpler words, Salman & Shah Rukh are two seniors who know exactly what works & what doesn't in a script. It's upto them to decide how their final phase of their respective careers will get shaped up.
Lastly, Salman Khan has never disappointed all through the decade in his 3 decade career. It is unacceptable to see Srk do it. I may still be furious over Zero, but having spent an entire decade even if criticizing Srk's choice of roles + films, in a way had defended him saying he deserves better & the industry hasn't had his back. But it's time to say, as an audience, I deserve better & it's time for Srk to deliver on his potential.
