Is Salman Khan pushing his luck with ‘Bodyguard’ sequel?

The latest news about the possibility of a sequel to the superstar’s recent film makes me wonder if he is overdoing the success formula

Bodyguard’s producer Atul Agnihotri is considering making a sequel of the Salman Khan-Kareena Kapoor hit. He adds that there is no plan at the moment though. Like all of Salman’s recent films Bodyguard too got a grand opening and great box-office collections. It was a typical Salman flick replete with super heroic stunts and funny antics weaved into an incoherent story. And that’s been the case with most of his films – Dabangg, Ready and now Bodyguard. Going by what people had to say after watching Bodyguard it is clear that it wasn’t the story, but the superstar’s charisma that lured his fans to the theatres. So if the sequel happens, one question that comes to my mind is: will his fans throng to neighbouring cinema halls to watch him do a mindless act yet again? Well, they love to see the 40-plus actor portray a childlike lover boy, mouth funny, but incongruous dialogues and rip apart his shirt in the most bizarre manner! But for how long? And can Bodyguard’s already thin screenplay be pushed further? I don’t think so. Hindi cinema’s Rajinikanth equivalent believes he can, but it is possible only if like the southern superstar he was doing only one film a year. While we love Salman and his idiosyncrasies, it’s time he had some believable tales to tell too. Let’s hope to we’ll get to see a different aspect of the star in Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger. But for that we shall have to wait till 2012. Meanwhile, you tell us what you think about the Bodyguard sequel. Will it work?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    UNFORTUNATELY it will work. and if such fils are repetitively made and become Box office hits then Bollywood is truly DOOMED! I’m sorry, I do like salman but I really think he should be involved in more meaningful and better made movies

  • Nelia

    Dabangg 2- Yes! Partner 2 – Maybe! Bodyguard 2- NO,No,No!!
    Should just let Bodyguard enjoy it’s phenomenal success and let it rest to remain a notch on Salman Khan’s post without risking a part 2 that could doom his extraordinary run at the box office.

    Huge Salman fan but I have to agree with the article. Salman needs to start making some movies that at least somewhat portray reality. He also needs to stop hopping around like a child, and start acting in movies like Tere Naam which really set him apart. If only he took some serious roles and stopped trying to be funny. Unfortunate because he has everything going for him, yet he continues to do movies that either have horrible scripts, or that have a somewhat decent script and he kills it with his child like antics.

  • AJIN…COCHIN

    BODYGUARD success not only becoz of salman..Dont avoid the beautiful story. The story line has decided the success of the films in Malayalam & Tamil…
    May be u r saying this becoz u dont know about siddiques career history in film making. check it first

    u r just flattering salmankhan …!!

    u can understand the facts in his next couple of films …sure.

  • Francies Chennai

    you r right Ajin…

    Actually they are manipulated the story horrible in Hindi.

    In Malayalam & Tamil the story was realistic story, if not the audience will not accept this story especially in Malayalam.

    Actually this one man show- & unbelievable fights destroyed the story.
    and they don’t know about siddique .. if they see his old films they can understand what is he>>!! but siddiques Hindi and English communication is bad

  • Divyajeet

    No matter what salman make it will gross high amount. See movies like Bodyguard, Dabangg, Ready, no story still top grossers. Just wish Indian audience gets more sensible to watch good movies. Soon, Salman will become typecast like Akshay Kumar Once became after Singh is Kinng.

    Hope Bollywood gets better soon

  • Divyajeet

    Salman is totally insecure. He cannot make original films, so instead of copying south movie now he moves to sequels. Same characters, same story, less story. Salman’s little brain will be less pressurised.
