Bollywoodhungama Movie Review

For most of us, the festive season is also about entertaining ourselves with a Bollywood biggie. Following two blockbuster Eid releases in the last two years, WANTED [2009] and DABANGG [2010], Salman Khan, the darling of the masses, unleashes yet another entertainer this Eid [this time, it coincides with Ganesh Chaturthi] -- BODYGUARD. The buzz around a Salman movie only got bigger this year, but the pertinent question is, will Salman deliver yet another festive hit with BODYGUARD? After having set such high standards for himself, will Salman surpass his previous achievements? Well, that should be easy to pull off taking into account [a] Salman's current form at the box-office and [b] The film has the merits to stand on its feet.

A section of the industry feels that Salman is limiting himself to hardcore masala films that defy logic. That he's slowly getting typecast in similar genre movies. Perhaps, you may assume that BODYGUARD is no exception. You may also assume that BODYGUARD is an extension of what we've witnessed in DABANGG and READY. But it is not so. Let me say, BODYGUARD is atypical Salman entertainer, yet there are moments [in its second hour specifically] that make it stand apart from all Salman starrers we have witnessed in the recent past, which includes WANTED, DABANGG and READY.

Let me elaborate. You expect Salman starrers to be larger-than-life, superhero films. You expect him to be the messiah of the masses. BODYGUARD presents Salman exactly the way we expect him to be presented, but, at the same time, the film brings back memories of the soft, romantic roles that Salman essayed in his initial films. What makes the film tick is that Salman and director Siddique have done something hatke within the limitations of the typical Bollywood formula, which, I am sure, should appeal to the Hindi movie buff abundantly.

Final word? BODYGUARD is a perfect family entertainer that compliments the spirit of the festive season.

When it comes to being punctual and doing his duties perfectly, Lovely Singh [Salman Khan] is unmatchable. Taking great pride in what he does, he spares no effort in giving his everything to his profession.

Lovely is summoned for an assignment of guarding Divya [Kareena Kapoor], the daughter of Sartaj Rana [Raj Babbar], a business tycoon. Lovely accompanies her to her campus, but ends up rubbing her the wrong way with his over-protective nature. She finds him to be a major obstacle in leading a regular campus life. To throw him off-track and get him out of the way, she comes up with a 'master plan' -- that of trapping him in a fake love affair. 'Once he's smitten by the girl of his dreams and is reveling in his new-found romance, he will leave us alone and we shall be free to do our own thing unhindered', says Divya to her friends.

She becomes an anonymous admirer of his and starts hounding him, expressing her 'feelings' in no uncertain terms. Lovely, however, proves to be a tough nut to crack and it takes quite a bit of doing from her side to penetrate his fort-like exterior. But once she succeeds in doing so, he transforms into a completely different person. Divya is triumphant and is all set to relish her regained freedom.

But things take an unexpected turn when she learns a few things about Lovely. Things that she could've never even imagined. And she soon finds herself trapped in a dilemma that she's unable to resolve. And with her, soon enough, Lovely finds himself trapped in a web of lies, trickery and deceit.

BODYGUARD is a simple-n-sweet tale of love that's engaging and relatable. At the same time, there's an unexpected twist in the pre-climax which shocks you completely. At no point does the director swerve from the main plot to provide a few extra laughs or thrills. Besides, this is a script which gives actors a lot of room to emote. And both Salman and Kareena seize the opportunity with both hands. More on that later!

Like I pointed out earlier, with BODYGUARD, Salman returns to a genre he started out with -- love story. Sure, BODYGUARD is a remake of a Malayalam film [remade in various South Indian languages as well], which has all the trappings of a perfect masala film -- action, music, comedy -- but BODYGUARD is essentially a love story at heart. Salman's intro may give an impression that it's a hardcore masala film, especially the song and fight sequence [frankly, the first half of the film is routine, with not much happening in the plot]. The director reserves the best for the second half, when it transforms into a love story. The action scene in the second half -- when Salman and Aditya Pancholi get into a fist fight -- is outstanding and will send his fans in raptures. Especially the moment when Salman's shirt rips off and his ripped muscles can be seen. The twist in the tale is a complete shocker. In fact, the penultimate reels of the film catches you complete unaware since you don't expect the story to change so dramatically.

Director Siddique, who has directed the same script for the third time, ensures that a simple story is narrated with simplicity and unfussiness. The twist in the tale comes at the right time, the songs are smartly integrated in the plotline and of course, there are ample comic moments, courtesy Rajat Rawail. The best thing about the film is that Siddique has made a very conscious effort to project Salman as a sensitive human being and not as a demigod, which is why the character becomes all the more relatable and endearing.

The soundtrack fits the genre of the film well. The title track at the very start [Salman's intro] will draw whistles and claps, while 'Teri Meri' is undoubtedly the pick of the lot. Soulfully rendered, this one's simply mesmerizing. Overall, it's a hit score from Himesh Reshammiya and Pritam. Sejal Shah's cinematography is appropriate. Vijayan's action sequences are stylish. Though not an action film, the action sequences do stand out.

Salman delivers one of his best performances in recent times. He makes magnificent use of his tough physique and soft face. Salman's fans are sure to lap this knockout performance in a big way. BODYGUARD would be incomplete without Kareena's contribution. Some roles are tailor-made for actresses who can deliver with aplomb and who better than Kareena to infuse life in a challenging character. She looks gorgeous [as always] and gives this character the dignity that it deserves. Raj Babbar is perfect. Mahesh Manjrekar is as usual. Aditya Pancholi, in a cameo, stages a welcome comeback. He's first-rate. Rajat Rawail is a joy to watch. He's truly funny. Hazel is quite good. Asrani and Vidya Sinha are okay in their respective parts.

On the whole, BODYGUARD works for varied reasons -- it has a simple, but captivating story with a dramatic twist in the tale, the chemistry between the lead actors is perfect and the music is well juxtaposed in the narrative. But its biggest USP is, without doubt, Salman Khan. He carries the film on his broad and brawny shoulders and that alone is the imperative reason for watching this film. BODYGUARD should emerge his third festive hit and fourth super-success at the ticket window. Expect a hurricane called BODYGUARD to strike at the box-office.

Rating: 4.5/5

“I am very passionate about acting” – Kareena Kapoor

Bodyguard, being released on August 31st, stars the very exciting jodi of Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Directed by Siddique and produced by Alvira Agnihotri and Atul Agnihotri, Bodyguard is action, it is comedy, it is music, it is dance, and it is, of course, romance. Kareena plays Divya a girl who just wants to go to college, but things go very wrong when her father hires her a bodyguard, played by Salman Khan. To get rid of him she gets the idea to get him involved into a fake love affair: “Once he’s smitten by the girl of his dreams and is reveling in his new-found romance, he will leave us alone, and we shall be free to do our own thing unhindered’, says Divya to her friends. However, this being Bollywood, the hero and the heroine have to fall in love and on the way have many adventures…the rest of that story is what makes up the rest of the film. We were able to catch Kareena for a very quick chat and she talked all things Bodyguard and a few extras as well!

What went into your decision to do Bodyguard?

Well, of course apart from the fact that I have Salman as my bodyguard and the film is releasing on Eid, I think it’s one of my very special roles that I’m projecting on screen till today. I’m excited about it.

Can you tell us about your character?

She’s quite a loyal, endearing kind of a girl. She’s a girl that, you know, you would want to protect. A girl like every man would want. How she fights for her love is very much part of her. She’s pretty much the pure pristine kind of girl…that kind of a character.

Was she fun to play?

Oh, yes! It was great fun working with Salman. It’s like a family production since Alvira Agnihotri and Atul Agnihotri are producing the movie. It’s just been great. Manish has done some fabulous clothes for my character and that’s what made it even more energetic and fun.

What goes into your preparations for your roles?

Actually I don’t prepare too much. It’s more like I rely a lot on my instinct and spontaneity because that’s the way I am as a person. My reactions are quite instinctive and very, very spontaneous. I think that is something that I rely on more than preparation as an actor.

What do you think you and Mr. Salman Khan bring out in each other as actors?

I feel we make a great pair because we are quite dynamic on screen. Salman has a great charm and I think he adds that to my personality a lot. That’s why I think it’s become one of the hottest films today in the movie industry and why people are really eager to go watch the movie.

Tell us about working with the director Siddique.

It was great. He made the original film. It’s actually the remake of a Malayalam film Bodyguard and he made it in Tamil as well, which are the two South Indian languages, and now he’s directed us in the Hindi one. He was very sweet, and what better to work with than somebody who’s made the movie twice before?

Do you have a favorite song?

I think the romantic song ‘Teri Meri’ is the best song on the album. It’s my most favorite. Salman heard it somewhere and told Himesh that he wanted this tune for my song in it. I think after a long time Himesh has given music to an album so I love that song! For the picturization we’ve shot in different kind of sets and I think it is the best on air.

What are audiences going to love about Bodyguard?

Just the fact that it has both of us in it. It has a great story. It has some fabulous action, and of course Salman playing a bodyguard. Plus some fun scenes to it. People are really excited for this Salman starrer.

What do you love about being an actress?

I’ve always wanted to be an actress. It’s something that has been there since I’ve been a child. I’m extremely passionate about acting. I guess that’s why it just comes to me because it’s something that I always planned to do. It is something I have been doing and something that I wanted to do since I was 4-5 years old.

Looking back over your career so far, tell us about your journey.

I think it’s been great. I mean, of course there’s been ups and downs – there have been things that you learn from. I think I’m at a stage where I’m really, really thankful to my fans, to my producers, and to my costars who’ve worked with me, supported me, and made me what I am today.

What else do you have coming up after Bodyguard?

There’s Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One that will release on Diwali, and Agent Vinod with Saif in December. And next year a film with Aamir will come out as well as a film with Imran. I have also given my yes to Heroine.

Message for your fans?

Just that they’ve been so loyal and so supportive. It’s because of them I have this energy and this kind of passion and fire in me. It’s only because of them. So, thank you for all the love.

I don’t sell boredom to my audience

(Gesturing dismissively) We had Pritam compose a romantic track for us, I Love You. But then we wanted something dhamakedaar and that isn’t Pritam’s forte. So I called Himesh and told him to make music for us. In half an hour he was ready with three songs.

But then he had sworn to not make music for films other than his own.

Please yaar, everyone wants to make music in this industry. And Himesh is such a talented guy, I am sure he wanted to come back.

You aren’t among the best dancers in the industry, but these days you seem to be innovating with your dance moves.

Even today I do only easy steps, which children can imitate. Now that I have run out of hands in pocket, on the belt, holding the collar etc. I will have to finally start dancing.

Kareena Kapoor and you haven’t been the most successful pair in Bollywood. Is that a reason for worry?

I don’t believe in history. Some people have been saying this is a panvati, unlucky couple. All this is rubbish. She suited the role and hence we took her on.

But you have often said that you look upon Kareena as Karisma (Kapur)’s kid sister. Has she grown up in your eyes?

I don’t look at her as a baby anymore, I look at her as a babe now (smiles). I have done almost 13 films with her sister and I used to often see her hanging out at the sets. So when I started working with her it was difficult for me to look at her as a grown-up girl. But then this time I was like, ‘What is wrong with me? Why am I thinking of her as a kid? I should look at her as a woman.’ Our chemistry this time is just outstanding; on screen that is. If I say off screen, Saif (Ali Khan) heart attack se marr jayega (laughs).

I was always there for Salman: Himesh Reshammiya

After almost six years apart, Himesh Reshammiya returned to his mentor Salman Khan to compose music for Bodyguard. He denies there being any rift between the superstar and and him.

"It is just that I had got busy composing for the films that I was acting in. But I was always there for Salman," he says. The duo has worked on 11 films together with 2005's Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya being the last. When Himesh was offered Bodyguard, he obviously wanted to live up to the expectations. The creative inputs kept flowing from the star so often, that Himesh has decided to dedicate the film's music to Salman.

"The title track has already become a huge hit. Desi Beat is a big success overseas but my personal favourite is Teri Meri that completely has Bhai's inputs. Salman always keeps his stock of tunes ready and one day he called me at around 3 am and told me about the melody he was working on," says Himesh.

"After a six-year gap, I don't find any change in him as a person but he has certainly got creatively more evolved. He is blessed in that regard at the moment," adds Himesh.

Guest composer Pritam, who has composed a love song - a ballad - I Love You, says Salman approved of it on the first hearing and there was no need to give another option to him. "And then the way Salman enacts a song enhances the song further. He puts in so much life in it making it more electrifying," says Pritam.

Kareena Kapoor grooves to Salman Khan's tunes



He is an actor. He is a painter. And now he is a music composer. Salman Khan has turned music director for his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri's film Bodyguard.

Himesh Reshammiya, the music composer for the film made way for the hero to add his tunes to the last song. The rain song, picturised on Khan and Kareena and shot last Sunday at Filmcity will play during the end credits of the film.

A source close to the film revealed, "Salman decided to compose music for the song Teri Meri Prem Kahaani at the spur of the moment.

He did take Reshammiya's inputs on the same. They worked on it together and then churned out the entire tune. Salman already had a tune in mind, it seems. And he wanted that for this Kareena number.

Looks like Salman is ready to take no chances with his films anymore. For his last film Ready, the actor had taken to editing. And with Bodyguard now, he seems to have taken to music.

Salman and Reshammiya sat for two hours before they reached a mutual consensus on the tune for the song. "Bodyguard is very important to Salman.

This is also his brother-in-law's film. His money is at stake. And it has his ex-Katrina Kaif playing a cameo," explained the source.

The rain song in question, was shot last Sunday with Kareena Kapoor in an orange saree. "Kareena looked hot. the song was shot on the last day of the final schedule. Bodyguard is now complete in all respects. After the shoot, Kareena headed straight to Shah Rukh Khan's RA.One wrap-up party," added the source.

Bodyguard marks the return of Himesh Reshammiya to mainstream Bollywood music composing.

Pritam was earlier composing music for the project and was replaced by Himesh after he finished composing a few songs. Looks like the composers list has just got a new name attached to it - Salman Khan.

Shera shoots for item song with Salman in Bodyguard

After unveiling the first look of Bodyguard, Salman Khan's real-life bodyguard Shera will now be seen shaking a leg in an item song in the film.

Shera, who recently shot for this special item number with Salman, was taken aback when Sallu asked him to join him for a song in Bodyguard. Shera has been by Salman's side since the last 15 years and they indeed share a close bond.

Bodyguard is slated to release on August 31 this year.

http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/news/2011/07/28/16092/index.html

Katrina will be dancing on 'Aaya Re Aaya Bodyguard' along with Salman

'Aaya Re Aaya Bodyguard'....that's the item song which Katrina would be joyously gyrating to in Bodyguard. Even as Katrina gears up for the challenge of outdoing her 'Sheila Ki Jawaani' number she has a bigger challenge to meet up to.

Salman Khan aka the King Of All He Surveys, will also be part of the song. Apparently, he reasoned that since the song is about his character, Bodyguard ka hona to haq banta hai, boss. Now Ganesh Acharya has been asked to incorporate Salman into Katrina's elaborate item number.

Apparently, Salman wants the number structured like 'Sheila Ki Jawaani' where Akshay Kumar joins Katrina. That is easier said than done.

Says a source, "Salman likes to do his own thing in the dance numbers. Everyone knows in 'Munni Badnaam' he didn't follow Farah Khan's instructions. Katrina will be rigorously rehearsing her steps for 'Aaya Re Aaya Bodyguard'. She wants it to be as perfect as 'Sheila Ki Jawaani'. Salman's improvisations are bound to distract her. But the there is not much she can do about it. Because as Salman pointed out the song is about him, so he has to be part of it."

Bodyguard producer Atul Agnihotri confirms that Salman would be part of Katrina's item number.

http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/news/2011/07/26/16077/index.html

Katrina Kaif to do item number in Bodyguard

In Ready, it was Zarine Khan who heated up the screens with her scintillating performance in 'Character Dheela' along with Salman Khan. And now for his next film Bodyguard, Salman's former flame Katrina Kaif will be heating up the scene.

Bollywood Hungama has learnt that the Katrina won't just be doing an ordinary cameo in Bodyguard. Instead, Kaif is all set to sizzle in a grand item number that will play during the opening credits of the film.

It is said that Salman was so impressed with success of 'Sheila Ki Jawaani', that he requested Katrina to be a part of the opening-credits of the film. The item song in question for the opening credits will be composed by Himesh Reshammiya and Ganesh Acharya will choreograph the song.

If that wasn't enough, we also hear that the item number will be on the lines of James Bond's opening credits.

The song will be shot on July 26.

http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/news/2011/07/20/16039/index.html

Sallu gets his Sheila back

Katrina will be doing an item number for the opening credits of Bodyguard styled after James Bond films

Katrina Kaif will be a part of Salman Khan’s forthcoming film Bodyguard. And she won’t just do an ordinary cameo. The actress is all set to sizzle in an item number that will play during the opening credits of the film. In fact, after her success with Sheila Ki Jawaani, it was Salman who requested his ex-girlfriend to be a part of the opening-credit item number. Needless, to say, leading lady Kareena Kapoor hasn’t taken this news too well.

A source revealed, “When Salman asked Katrina to be a part of Bodyguard, she didn’t even blink before saying ‘yes’. But on hearing Salman’s grand plans for the item number Katrina got a little unsure.

Salman’s brief was simple, an item song for the opening credits that would put Sheila to shame. Considering Kareena was the leading lady of the film, Katrina feared that this might not go down too well with her. However, when Kat told Salman about her cause of worry, he said that he’ll take care of Bebo.”

The item number in question has been assigned to Himesh Reshammiya for the music and Ganesh Acharya for the scintillating steps. Interestingly, both Himesh and Ganesh are Salman protégés.

And that’s not all. The item number in question will be on the lines of James Bond opening credits. So Katrina has to now match up to the Bond girls for Bodyguard. “It’s a challenge for Katrina to take the item song beyond Sheila Ki Jawaani.

She has already started preparing for it. She’s been watching the James Bond credit songs in Goldfinger, Octopussy and other Bond films to get an idea of the same,” said the source.

Despite Salman’s claims of taking care of Bebo, the leading lady is not too happy about Katrina’s intrusion in the film. Bebo who had maintained for the past few years that she would like to work in single heroine films, apparently is miffed with the addition of an item number to be picturised on Kaif. This however, seems not to have affected the filmmakers’ decision.

When contacted, the spokesperson for the film confirmed that Katrina, indeed will be performing the opening-credit item number inspired by Bond films.

Pritam back in Bodyguard, for one song only

A fter Salman Khan’s flash decision to rope in Himesh Reshammiya instead of Pritam for his upcoming Bodyguard had not gone well with the ousted music director, the actor has now decided to retain some of Pritam’s music in the film, leading to much consternation on the part of Himesh.

Though the two composers don’t see eye to eye, and are averse to sharing credits with any other music director, with Salman they don’t seem to have much of a choice.

“When Salman got him on board at the eleventh hour, Himesh left all his work, including the pre-production of his album, for the film,” a source close to the project told Mumbai Mirror.

“Salman’s brief to Himesh was that the songs should rock, and to be done quickly to replace some of Pritam’s songs. Himesh was to make a comeback as an independent music composer in Bodyguard.”

But now, the source said, both composers will be included.

When contacted, Himesh said it was too early to talk about Bodyguard, but the film’s producer Atul Agnihotri confirmed, “Pritam has recorded a superb love song that has been filmed and will be part of the Bodyguard soundtrack.

All the songs have been filmed. We’re all set for an Eid release.

Pritam said he was flattered that his song had found a place in the film. “It’s a compliment.

That is the only song I worked on for Bodyguard. Working for Salman and Bhushan Kumar is always a pleasure.”

Kareena to do another Mauja hi Mauja style song

Actor Kareena Kapoor will groove to a Punjabi number in her upcoming film, Bodyguard, with  Himesh Reshammiya.
Reshammiya is making a comeback to singing after two years. The song has already been recorded, and actor Salman Khan loved the number.
The song has the flavour of the popular Mauja hi Mauja track from Jab We Met.

The actors are currently shooting the film, directed by Salman’s brother in law, Atul Agnihotri, in Patiala.

Himesh back with Salman after 6 years with Bodyguard

This was one combination that one had been waiting to be back in Bollywood for quite some time now. Together, Himesh Reshammiya and Salman Khan had delivered close to a dozen odd chartbuster albums. However, the last album for which they had collaborated was Kyon Ki which was way back in 2005. Now more than half a decade later, the duo is coming together for Bodyguard which is Salman's home production (Atul Agnihotri, Salman's brother-in-law, produces the film).

Our source spills the beans:

The history

Himesh's last film for an outside banner was Namastey London, the songs of which are playing till date. However, after turning an actor, Himesh stopped doing films for outside banners. He has recently made an exception with the sequel to the film, Namastey London 2. Next step in the same direction is Bodyguard.

The fact

Their biggest album till date happens to be Tere Naam. Other films like Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge, Kahi Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye and Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya boast of chartbuster music as well.

The Salman factor

There have been speculations all these years about Himesh and Salman separating from each other due to certain irresolvable conflicts. Though Himesh had denied any problems whatsoever, tongues were continuing to wag. Now with Bodyguard as their next project together, all these rumours have been laid to rest. Himesh is said to be mighty excited about the film and is finalising some of the best tunes for Bodyguard.

The original composer

Pritam was originally roped in to compose for Bodyguard. However, the sole track that he has already done would be used for the film while the remaining four would be composed by Himesh.

The resolve

Himesh had announced that all music composed by him would be presented only though his music label and publishing company HR MUSIK. However, Bodyguard is an exception as Himesh has stepped in the project only now while the music rights have already been acquired by T-Series.

The plans

Himesh's next comedy film as an actor, Damadamm, would be releasing this Diwali while clashing with Shah Rukh Khan's Ra.One. In addition the composer is now ready with 500 new compositions and has signed 250 artists, bands, musicians, singers and composers for his company. This is not all as his international album in English, '@ da edge' would be soon released in 122 countries.

Salman Khan and Himesh Reshammiya back as friends?

Himesh Reshammiya has realised that it's not a good idea to not to be in Salman Khan's good books. So, the music composer has apparently decided to bury the hatchet with the superstar and will now compose music for Sallu's upcoming film Bodygaurd. Salman had given a break to Himesh with his film Tere Naam and had even promoted him.

But over the period of time, Himesh had outgrown himself from Salman and began presenting himself as an actor. The trouble between Sallu and Himesh had become apparent when the former had appeared in a TV reality show and had taken a jibe at Himesh.

But now the foes have turned friends again. Himesh is back with his mentor and the rumoured war is over. A good number of songs will be composed by Himesh in the movie. Since he was focussing on his acting off late and promoting his film Damadumm, Himesh will be back in his element with Bodyguard. After all, some of his best work has been for Salman's films.

My Review

My review

My Opinion (before music release)

Whoa! Now this was da least expected sudden abrupt U – turn such that this news is too good to be true n believed, such is its timing in himesh’s career which is already gearing up n building momentum once again due to previous announcements n developments in da months gone by.

This time himesh should be well n truly back. Firstly, because himesh has always reserved his best for Sallu mia, a testimony to that is Tere Naam which was a best seller in that era. Secondly, Salman’s career is at an all time high on cloud nine.

Although himesh’s filmi albums did decently (after release of AKS – The Moviee), they could not generate the same hype n mass hysteria.

People wondered why benchmark album like Kajraare couldn’t create same desired level of impact.

Sadly, good albums need good aggressive marketing n promotion too to make their presence felt (of course there are always exceptions to this case).

Previously, himesh was becoming ‘out of sight out of mind’ whereas there are ‘all eyes’ on Salman’s forthcoming projects after da monstrous success of Dabaang.

Therefore, aam junta just would not be able to forego da soundtrax of Bodyguard which will come across rite ‘in their face’.

Though it would interesting to know if himesh would only be composing or even singing those songs, because Salman has taken digs on himesh’s nazal voice in musical reality tv shows like saregamapa challenge.

If so, then it would be an absolute delight to see Sallu lip-singing himesh’s chartbusting music, as Sallu is / was himesh’s mentor , gave him a break as composer n even promoted him, therefore a perfect re-union n sike givin stuff this!

Let’s see if himesh can match da score to that of Tere Naam which was da hit jodi’s best work together till date.

Also, ever since himesh has decided to score for outer banners, the good thing is that he has very prestigious projects in hand i.e. Namaste London 2 and now Bodyguard, rather than just ordinary medium to low budget projects, which is building da rite momentum in terms of da way forward.

Now if da music of @ da edge n bodyguard release in a short space of time of each other (along with da music of damadamm), himesh suddenly will be all over da place emerging from nowhere, n that may do wonders for Damadamm movie, just as was da case of release of AKS - The Moviee.

As far as this Himesh-Salman reunion goes, it is one of best news that a himesh fan could expect n it is a thrilling news, rest be assured that himesh would leave no stone unturned to win back Sallu mia and be his preferred numero uno choice in Salman’s stable.

After all, himesh hasn’t given music for any other of 3 khans except Sallu, and so he should be da preferred choice n form a bond with other A list actors like Salman n Akshay Kumar.

Sallu doing his thing on Himesh’s best tunes, sike giving stuff!
