Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is all set to enthrall the audiences once again with his upcoming movie ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. The film will reportedly touch hearts in approximately 50 countries outside India, which accounts for more than 700 screens.
‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ will reportedly be released in four major international markets – USA, UK, UAE and Australia. In totality, the movie will be releasing in more than 5000 screens.
Talking about how excited the industry is about the movie, trade expert Taran Adarsh says “Expectations from Bajrangi Bhaijaan are humongous, mainly because it is releasing on Eid, and brings back the combination of Salman Khan and Kabir Khan (director) after the successful film, Ek Tha Tiger (2012). If the movie gets a wide release in India, as well as in the international markets, it only goes to prove that the film is piping hot among the audience, distributors and exhibitors”.
‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ will follow its tradition and release on Friday (July 17) in most of these countries, in some non-traditional markets such as Morocco, Tunisia, Korea, Taiwan and Poland, it will release at a later date.
Amar Butala, co-producer and COO, Salman Khan Films, says: “Bajrangi Bhaijaan is this year’s most awaited film, be it for the audiences, the distributors or exhibitors. This will be Salman’s widest release till date in India and in the overseas market. We are confident that the content of the film will not only be loved by his fans in India, but will also resonate with newer audiences across the 50-plus countries that the film will release in.”
Produced by Salman Khan Films and Rockline Venkatesh, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ also stars 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 (July 17).
