On the occasion of 21 years of Salman Khan starrer ‘Hum Apke Hain Koun’, the Kabir Khan film hit the right chord. Apart from minting money in India, the film is doing really good business overseas as well. (See Pics of Preity Zinta, Dia Mirza on ramp at IIJW)

In the recent years, ever since Salman Khan made a comeback with ‘Wanted’, he has been releasing his movies on Eid. All his movies that were released on Eid have entered the Rs 100 cr club, and Bajrangi Baijaan which showcases his innocence onscreen has been liked the most by his fans. He has played the role of Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi, who is a true follower of Hanuman and has very simple ideologies.

Apart from Salman, who has won accolades for his role, child actor Harshaali Malhotra, who played the role of Munni has been receiving appreciations from all over. Nawazuddin Siddiqui played the role of a Pakistani journalist Chand Nawaz and Kareena Kapoor Khan is seen playing the love interest of Salman Khan.

Commenting on the success of their first film Amar Butala, COO, Salman Khan Films and Co-Producer of Bajrangi Bhaijaan said, “It’s a matter of pride for Salman Khan Films that our first film as Producers continues to set new box office benchmarks both in India and worldwide and has found both box office success and critical acclaim. We are overwhelmed with the love and appreciation the audience is showering on the film across the globe”.

Nandu Ahuja, Sr. VP, India Theatrical, Eros International Media Ltd added, “We are so delighted that our first collaboration with SKF has garnered such an unprecedented response and we hope for many more to follow. Bajrangi Bhaijaan has created box office history; Salman mania persists amongst his fans and audiences and records continue to shatter as there is no stopping the film”.

Commenting on the overseas success, Pranab Kapadia, President – Marketing and Distribution, Eros International Plc, said, “Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s performance in the overseas markets has amazed trade pundits with unheard of numbers. The movie has surpassed the overseas collections of Salman’s previous blockbusters and has gone on to become the highest grossing Salman Khan movie ever.”
