While most Salman Khan’s films are a remake of Southern projects, and films like Wanted and Kick, have been originally inspired from South films, Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s plot is completely unique and creatively unexplored. It will be interesting to watch the actor in a movie that has not been made in any language.

Importance of Bajrangi

This time around Salman Khan has got an one of a kind character in the plot. The character is by all accounts motivated by the Hindu divinity, Hanumanji. Salman Khan’s character is called Bajrangi and he is by all accounts an enormous adherent of Hanumanji. The ‘Selfie Le Re’ tune likewise highlights performing artists dressed as the Hindu god, Hanumanji. A gigantic symbol of the divinity likewise highlights in the melody. Aside from that, Salman Khan’s character likewise wears a pendant fit as a fiddle of Hanuman ji’s weapon, mace.

All praise for the beauty of Kashmir, Salman had posted on Twitter, “KASHMIR bahut AMEER in natural beauty… Maashallah Maashallah [sic]” This film will have Kashmir play a vital role, which has not been explored much in Salman Khan’s earlier movies.

India-Pakistan angle

From the first look of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the story seems to be set in India and traces the lead actor’s journey to Pakistan. The trailer starts off with the last thread of transportation being cut off between India and Pakistan. In the past, a similar India-Pakistan reference was used in Salman’s film, Ek Tha Tiger. However here is a more humanitarian take on it.

While fans were waiting eagerly for the trailer, it was launched in a mega manner at a multiplex theatre for the first time, as Salman Khan usually releases the trailers at single-screen theatres.
