Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

For Sal­man Khan fans, his movies are noth­ing less than a fes­ti­val that they ea­gerly look for­ward to. And, to make it a dou­ble treat, Sal­man’s next re­lease, Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan, is set to re­lease this Eid. The ac­tor, along with di­rec­tor Kabir Khan and singer Mika Singh, re­leased a spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion song, Aaj Ki Party, re­cently. “As we celebrate unity with Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan this Eid, we felt it was manda­tory to have an Eid cel­e­bra­tory song,” says Kabir. The mak­ers be­lieve that the song is so peppy and cel­e­bra­tory that it will be on ev­ery party playlist. Ap­par­ently, when the dance num­ber was re­leased online, it be­came an in­stant hit among Sal­man fans across the globe. It has gar­nered a lot of views within two days of its re­lease, and also seems to have taken over the so­cial media. The mo­ment Sal­man tweeted the song, it be­gan trend­ing world­wide, and the ac­tor is over­whelmed with the re­sponse. The mak­ers say that it’s a gift from Sal­man for his fans. Talk­ing about the num­ber, Amar Bhutala, COO of Sal­man Khan films and co-pro­ducer of the movie, says, “Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan is a story of or­di­nary peo­ple, who are caught in ex­tra­or­di­nary cir­cum­stances. The film has a larger-than-life back­drop, which will en­ter­tain fam­ily au­di­ences. Aaj Ki Party cel­e­brates the essence of the film.” Talk­ing about the song, Sal­man says, “It’s a dhamakedar (mind-blow­ing) track, and is a cel­e­bra­tion in it­self. There are two ver­sions to the num­ber. While the first ver­sion is out al­ready, the sec­ond one will be con­cep­tu­alised as per public de­mand, once the film re­leases.”

Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan is an up­com­ing fam­ily en­ter­tainer, di­rected by Kabir Khan, and pro­duced by Sal­man and Rock­line Venkatesh. It stars Sal­man, Ka­reena Kapoor Khan and Nawazud­din Sid­diqui in lead roles. The film will be dis­trib­uted world­wide by Eros In­ter­na­tional, and is sched­uled for re­lease on Eid 2015.
