Bajrangi Bhaijaan turns 5: Director Kabir Khan gets nostalgic, thanks audience for the love and appreciation
Kabir Khan's big-budget film Bajrangi Bhaijaan completed its 5 years in Bollywood on Friday. The director shared a heartfelt post on Instagram calling it his most special film.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan remains one of the best performances by Salman Khan in Bollywood. The film received humongous praises and accolades for its story and direction. As the film completed its 5 years in Bollywood, filmmaker Kabir Khan shared a behind the scenes video from the sets of the film. He also shared some insights on the films making and cast. The film starred Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Harshali Malhotra in lead roles.
Kabir took to Instagram to share a video from the making of the film. In the video, he is seen talking about Bajrangi Bhaijaan and his thought process during its entire shoot. Kabir says, “The whole journey for Bajrangi Bhaijaan began when I got a call from this south Indian writer. The casting of Shahida was the biggest challenge for the film – as it is the key character. When I was writing Bajrangi Bhaijaan, I knew the perfect Bajrangi Bhaijaan would be Salman. When you have actors like Salman, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Kareena Kapoor Khan, your life as a director is easier because they are such brilliant actors, there is a certain energy they bring onscreen.” Harshali Malhotra later played the lost kid in Bajrangi Bhaijaan and won several awards for it.
In his caption for the video, Kabir wrote, “A film that came from our hearts and will always be special for me because of the unprecedented love that you’ve showered upon Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Thank you for the continuing appreciation #5YearsOfBajrangiBhaijaan.”
