The Hindi-language film Bodyguard has nothing to do with the Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner love story from 1992. But it’s a bit closer to Jason Statham’s Transporter movies, with plenty of over-the-top fight choreography.
Bodyguard is an out-and-out Salman film, meant to be taken in the festive spirit of the season. If you value the grey cells in your head and want to guard yourself, give it a miss.
Salman, the son of noted writer Salim Khan, made his debut in Bollywood with a supporting role in Biwi Ho To Aisi. He has featured in films like Maine Pyaar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Karan Arjun, Hum Saath Saath Hain, Tere Naam and Bodyguard
The court has also questioned the credibility of Salman Khan's bodyguard Ravindra Patil, a key prosecution witness who had said that the actor was driving drunk and had ignored his warnings repeatedly. No one but Mr Patil had given this version, the court noted
In what weakens the case against Salman Khan considerably, the court has questioned the credibility of his bodyguard Ravindra Patil, a key prosecution witness who had said that the actor was driving drunk and had ignored his warnings repeatedly. No one but Mr Patil had given this version, the court noted
The prosecution maintained that only three persons were present in the car - Salman Khan who was driving the vehicle, his bodyguard and policeman Ravindra Patil, and the actor's friend, singer Kamaal Khan
Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan spoke about her relationship with Salman Khan. In a conversation with NDTV, the Bodyguard actress, who has known Salman since 25 years, said that their relationship has matured over time. "Salman does not let anything affect him which is why he is such a superstar. I am yet to meet someone who is as honest as Salman. He has everything but he looks like he has nothing. He has never taken his stardom seriously," said Kareena.
One of India's most bankable stars, Salman Khan made his debut as a leading man in the 1989 Rajshri production Maine Pyar Kiya. The teen romance was an instant hit and his love affair with the Indian audience has continued ever since. Wanted in 2009 was followed by seven superhits in four years - Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger, Dabangg 2, Jai Ho and Kick - crossing almost a 1000 crores.
Almost two weeks after a morphed picture of Kareena Kapoor was splashed on a religious group's magazine cover as a warning against 'love jihad', the actress is said to have beefed up her personal security. She has hired two bodyguards and increased security near her Bandra residence.
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut will reportedly portray mountaineer Bachendri Pal in a film to be directed by Hansal Mehta. Meanwhile, actor Salman Khan has apparently shown interest in the sequel to brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri's Bodyguard which was a huge hit in 2011.
