Salman Khan starrer Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali has undergone a title change a year ago, in May 2021. In actuality, the picture had been renamed Bhaijaan, thanks to Sajid Nadiadwala’s financial backing. However, the film has undergone a number of changes since then, including Nadiadwala’s withdrawal from the project, Salman Khan’s takeover of the production reins, and even Aayush Sharma’s withdrawal. Despite the multiple changes, Salman is continuing to work on the film, which now has a new cast.
A well-placed industry source reveals to BH why the film underwent a title change. “Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali started shooting on Salman’s farm on the outskirts of Mumbai last month, and now the title has been changed to a shorter Bhaijaan. The reason behind this is the fact that, Bhaijaan is the affectionate name fans use for Salman. In fact, Bhaijaan was the title Salman wanted for this particular project, a family saga of patriarchal family where the eldest son lords over the rest of the family.”
Further talking about the reason the source continues, “Salman’s role in the film is similar to the one he plays in real life in his own family. Salman Khan, in all his wisdom, has decided to eponymously name the film after his own character.”
