Salman’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijan’ to release in 5,000 cinema screens globally today

bajrangi-story_650_051315012511New Delhi, Jul 17 - Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s much-awaited ‘Bajrangi Bhaijan’ is all set to release today in 5,000 cinema screens globally. Directed by Kabir Khan, the film is the story of an Indian man on a mission to take a mute girl lost in India back to her home in Pakistan. The film is latest in the line of Salman’s Eid releases after ‘Wanted’, ‘Dabangg’ , ‘Bodyguard’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Kick’. The film is to simultaneously hit more than 5,000 screens globally, with 4500 being in India only. The film will release in approximately 50 countries outside India, and more than 700 screens abroad. From North African countries to the smallest towns in India, the movie will be distributed far and wide. It includes the four major international markets — the US, UK, UAE and Australia having nearly 450 screens. Trade experts say that a tremendous buzz around the film, which also features Kareena Kapoor, would lead this flick to emulate the success of Salman’s earlier Eid releases with heavy advance booking across the country. According to the experts, there has been a heavy rush for advance booking for the film, being produced by Salman Khan productions, at multiplexes and single-screens across India. Distributors say that the tickets for the first week have been almost sold out. The film, Salman Khan’s first mega-venture as a producer, also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui, with Khan playing the title role.
