In 2015, director Kabir Khan and actor Salman Khan had teamed up for Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The film was a blockbuster at the box office and even received positive reviews from critics. It had won the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment. There have been reports of a sequel to the film being planned, and recently, Salman finally confirmed that Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2 is happening. At a promotional event of RRR, Salman stated that he worked with SS Rajamouli’s father, K. V. Vijayendra Prasad, in Bajrangi Bhaijaan and they will team up soon for Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2.
According to PTI, Salman 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.”
Director Kabir Khan has earlier mentioned that he is not much keen on sequels. He had directed Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai was helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar. BollywoodLife recently interacted with Kabir Khan and the filmmaker EXCLUSIVELY told us whether he will be directing Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2 or not.
Kabir told us, "I have often said that I am not very fond of sequels because I feel that one should not make a sequel just because the last film was successful. Having said that if Vijayendra Prasad is writing a story and Salman is excited about it then it would be a great story. I have not heard it yet. I do know that there's something being written. But, having said that I don't do sequels, I will never say never. Ultimately if the story excites me, as a filmmaker I will definitely jump for it."
Further talking about collaborating with Salman, the filmmaker said, "Of course, I would love to work with Salman again. I had a brilliant relationship with Salman. We have done three films together; his contribution to my career is immense. I can easily say that without my collaborations with Salman I would not have the position that I have today in the industry. So, if something excites both of us, and if we feel that there's something worth collaborating on of course we will collaborate whether it's a Bajrangi sequel or something else."
Kabir is currently busy promoting his film 83 which stars Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. The movie is slated to hit the big screens on 24th December 2021.
