Bajrangi Bhaijaan is one of Salman’s most successful films. Also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Harshaali Malhotra in pivotal roles, Bajrangi Bhaijaan narrates the story of an ardent Lord Hanuman devotee in India and his childlike relationship with a little girl from Pakistan. He puts his life at stake to protect in order to hand her over to her mother on the other side of the Indian border.
Both Dangal and Secret Superstar starring Aamir Khan, which narrated tales of ambitious young girls, were loaded with human emotions. Salman’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan too is an extremely overwhelming film that highlights the bond between an Indian man and a Pakistani child.
And now it will be interesting to see if Salman succeeds in derailing Aamir’s Dangal at the Box Office in China.
