Is the Khan era actually coming to an end? We've had this debate over and over again, especially through the last two years when a number of films starring the three Khans (Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan) failed to either mint money or impress the audience. This includes SRK's Jab Harry Met Sejal, Salman's Tubelight and Race 3 and Aamir's Thugs of Hindostan. It is also an indication that just star power wouldn't work until the content is strong.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui, another actor who is unstoppable right now, doesn't agree with this though. According to him, one flop is too less to dismiss the legacy that the Khans have formed through years. "Ek picture flop ho gayi toh thodi na Khan ka zamaana chala gaya... Aisa nahi hota (Just because one film flopped, does it mean that the era of the Khans is over? It doesn’t happen like that)," he said during an interview to Times Now.

“Change in cinema happened a long time back... Filmmakers like Shekhar Kapur, Anurag Kashyap, Ram Gopal Verma are to be credited for it. Nowadays actors are saying they are bringing the change but that’s not true... whatever shift in cinema has happened is because of the filmmakers I mentioned," he added while talking about the trend of content-driven cinema.
Speaking of careers, Nawazuddin is on steady footing. His last fim Thackeray did fairly well at the box office and his next one titled Photograph, which will hit screens on March 15, looks interesting too.
