After collaborating with Antim: The Final Truth, Salman Khan reunites with his brother-in-law in Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. The title of the film will soon be renamed as Bhaijaan.
The film is helmed by Farhad Samji and is action-packed social comedy, which also stars Zaheer Iqbal. Zaheer made his Bollywood debut with Notebook which was bankrolled by Salman. Salman will be seen donning the character of Aayush and Zaheer’s older brother in this much-anticipated film.
A source told Bollywood Hungama, “The premise of Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali urf Bhaijaan is a tale of three brothers, with Salman playing the eldest followed by Zaheer and Aayush. The humour stems from the fact that his younger brothers can’t get married because the oldest in the house is yet unmarried.”
Adding to this, the source says, “Salman believes that emotions in reel are real when someone shares a similar bond in real life too. He shares a unique off screen bond with both Aayush and Zaheer, and Sajid too was on the same page with the cast. He agreed to Salman’s point of view of bringing the two youngsters on board the film. The chemistry of three brothers is said to be highlight of the Farhad Samji film.”
“Imagine the relief that younger brothers would get, when eldest in the lot finally finds the love of his life. It’s a tale of comedy padded with drama, romance, action, emotion and self-discovery. Though the title might be changed to Bhaijaan, the core message of the film remains the same – celebrate unity in diversity – and Salman’s character too will remind the audience of the vintage Prem, who always stood for love over hate,” the source added.
The film also stars Pooja Hedge as the female lead. After Salman Khan finishes Yash Raj Films’ Tiger 3 with Katrina Kaif and Emraan Hashmi, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will begin filming.
