Is Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2 Release Around The Corner?

On Sunday, December 19, actor Salman Khan attended the pre-release event of RRR movie in Mumbai along with SS Rajamouli, Alia Bhatt, Ram Charan and junior NTR. Salman used the opportunity to reveal that Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2 is in the pipeline. The sequel will be scripted by SS Rajamouli’s father, K. V. Vijayendra Prasad.

SS Rajamouli, also known as Koduri Srisaila Sri Rajamouli, is a prominent film director and screenwriter. He primarily focuses on Telugu cinema.

Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan avatar is quite close to his heart and is one of the actor’s most widely accepted portrayals. His followers adored him as the noble Bajrangi who stepped beyond the border of the motherland in a bid to return Munni (Harshali Mehta) to Pakistan, her home country. In the sequel of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Salman is expected to assume his role as Bajrangi.

The Hype About The Release Date

Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2 release date is yet to be finalized. The first segment of the shoot has already been completed. The shooting phase may begin immediately after the final closure of Salman’s upcoming film Tiger 3. The shooting of the remaining part of Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2 is most likely to resume by next year and the release may happen any time in 2023.

The Movie Cast

Salman Khan is said to be cast in the lead role. However, it is uncertain whether he will portray a new character or return to his role as ‘Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi’ as depicted in the previous edition. Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2 cast other than Salman Khan is still in a premature stage.

The Story

The plot of the film is yet to be decided, but given how well the first movie was received in Pakistan, it’s safe to assume that it will once again focus on the contentious India-Pakistan relationship. It will be fascinating to see how everything turns out!

The Director

According to current sources, the director’s name is yet to be disclosed. The previous version was directed by Kabir Khan. It may not get repeated this time due to a feud between Salman Khan and Kabir Khan. There are strong rumours that director Ali Abbas Zafar might helm the sequel.

The Movie Budget

The original film had a budget of nearly Rs. 90 crores. Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2 has an allocation of at least Rs. 150 crores. However, it may go beyond the estimates!

Conclusion

Bajrangi Bhaijaan had described the tale of the protagonist, namely, Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi. He was a passionate devotee of the Hindu deity Hanuman. Pawan embarks on a mission to return a mute six-year-old Pakistani Muslim girl Shahida to her homeland, Pakistan after being separated from her family in India. One hopes the same treatment will be given to the sequel for the delight of the masses!
