Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

Film­maker Kabir Khan, (right) who is all set to re­lease his up­com­ing film Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan which stars ac­tor Sal­man Khan (far right), says he was very im­pressed to hear about an in­ci­dent that showed the In­dian army’s hu­mane side.

It was be­ing re­ported re­cently that the In­dian Army sent an 11-year-old Pak­istani boy, Sameer Kayani, who had crossed into In­dia mis­tak­enly, back home with sweets and new clothes.

When Kabir and Sal­man heard about it, they were all praise for the men in uni­form and were also amazed at the co­in­ci­dence, as even in their film some­thing sim­i­lar hap­pens.

Kabir took to Twit­ter to ex­press his praise. “I swear this is not part of Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan pro­mo­tions. The great In­dian army shows what Be­ing Hu­man means (sic),” he wrote. Even Sal­man n was praise for the men in uni­form at the bor­der. The in­ci­dent is sim­i­lar to the what will be shown in the film. In the movie, Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan, Sal­man meets a girl from Pak­istan, who crosses the LOC by mis­take and makes it his mis­sion to take her back home safely.

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