Many started wondering whether ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ starring Salman Khan can withstand the unexpected storm before Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali’ in Bollywood. It is known that ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is releasing on July, 17th. Already Salman’s family offered prayers for the film’s success.
Director Kabir Khan is undeterred by ‘Baahubali’ storm. He says, “I am absolutely thrilled by the response to ‘Baahubali’. What Rajamouli has achieved is absolutely unprecedented. But with due respect, the film’s lead actors Prabhas and Rana Daggubatti are not superstars in the North. The film has worked overall for its concept, execution and screenplay”.
Kabir Khan is thrilled with ‘Baahubali’ success however, he says, “The film is written by K. Vijayendra Prasad who has also written ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. Writing and direction are clearly the stars of the show. I am hoping Vijayendraji’s magic works for our film too”. He says, Baahubali will not affect ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ or vice versa.
Kabir Khan adds, “Not at all! We are talking that way only because of the scarcity of screens in India. We have only more than 4,000 screens, while China has 12,000. There will always be a tussle for a large number of screens between two big films”.
