‘Salman Khan doesn’t follow protocols of formal announcements’: Kabir Khan denies naming the sequel to Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Days after Salman Khan announced the Bajrangi Bhaijaan sequel, director Kabir Khan said that the actor did so out of enthusiasm, although the screenplay has yet to be locked. The sequel to Bajrangi Bhaijaan will be named Pawan Putra Bhaijaan, according to Salman. In the 2015 blockbuster, Salman portrayed the title character with Kareena Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Harshaali Malhotra.

In an interview with Mid-Day, Kabir said, “Pawan Putra Bhaijaan is what Salman is calling it. It is definitely being written, He mentioned that it is happening because he is excited. I have not read the script, but Vijayendra sir will [always] write something exciting. The idea of [creating] a sequel never excites me. I will never make a sequel to my film only because [the original] was successful. If [I find] a great story, I will be happy to make one.”

On a brighter side, the filmmaker added, “Salman doesn’t follow [protocols] of formal announcements, he talks from his heart.”

In December of last year, Salman revealed the Bajrangi Bhaijaan sequel during a promotional event for SS Rajamouli’s RRR. When asked about it, though, Kabir told India Today, “That announcement is something that Salman did. Neither the script is written, nor has the idea been formed really. There is literally nothing right now we can talk about.”

In India, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is the third highest-grossing movie of all time. It was nominated for a National Film Award for Best Popular Film that Provides Healthy Entertainment. At a function, Salman had joined the RRR team. He’d stated, He had said, “I have a strong relationship with Rajamouli and his father, as he wrote Bajrangi Bhaijaan and soon, we will be working together again for Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2.”
