Mumbai, Aug 22: Actor Salman Khan’s ‘Bodyguard’ scheduled to release on August 31, is all set to create fresh records at the box office, according to trade analysts.
Salman is known to have his annual Eid hits which have created a hat-trick at the box office.
Commenting on it, Salman said, “The media and the trade say that Eid and Salman have become synonymous, etc. I don't think like that. This time Eid and Ganesh Chaturthi are likely to be on the same day. I'm more excited about that. Hindu-Muslim revelry is something I cherish. If I bring a film that doesn't do it for my audience in a festival season, then it will not work. No one is going to see a film unless a promo excites them. The festive season is all about watching a purely entertaining film. If the promo is boring or ridiculous, then the audience will not come to see my film whether it is Eid, Chaturthi or Diwali. You have to excite your audience.''
Well spoken Salman. It looks like it indeed is up to the audience to decide the fate of ‘Bodyguard’.
Speaking about the movie, Salman says, "Bodyguard is special, because apart from all the action, the comedy and the music; the love story is beautiful. It is a different kind of love story. It has not been seen before. I love it. All the macho men; the stud kind of guys are going to come out with khushi ke ansoon. If you consider Maine Pyar Kiya as an innocent love story, Bodyguard is somewhere close to that.''
With his fans eager to watch their hero, the ideal candidate to play bodyguard, a flattered Salman Khan quips, “If you are loyal, respectful and sincere, you can be a bodyguard. I don't make a show of being anything that I am not.''
So whose bodyguard are you Sallu Bhai? Katrina Kaif's or Kareena Kapoor's? "Interestingly, I am a bodyguard to both,'' he smiles.
