Eid gift from Salman
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.
