The movie will have some mindblowing action, chartbuster masala songs, Salman's bare-chested body, few classic dialogues, a beautiful damsel in distress and massive box office collections. The audience and the critics don't expect more than this. 'Tubelight' was exactly none of it and maybe this didn't go too well with anyone because of some solid preconceived notions about a typical 'Salman Khan Film'.

Sangh leader Bajrang Dal national president Vinay Katiyar claimed that the move to construct a Ramayana museum as a 'lollipop' and said that Hindus would be satisfied with nothing less than a 'beautiful and grand Ram Temple' in Ayodhya.
The proposed Ram museum however has had the support from all sides, Centre and the State, but has stirred up further insistence for a Ram Mandir.
'Why only Subramanian Swamy, every devotee of Ram wants the temple to be constructed soon. Until that happens we cannot live in peace. Be it through a bill in Parliament, through dialogue or a court verdict, the government has to find a solution' said Katiyar.
The close timings of the construction of the Ram Museum has raised further questions of there being a political motive.
