With legal hassles behind him for now, Salman Khan has resumed shooting at the Zoji La mountain pass in Srinagar. A court suspended Khan’s 5-year sentence in the 2002 hit-and-run case and granted him bail on May 8 pending his conviction appeal.
Salman is presently shooting 11,700 feet above sea level at a -2 degrees temperature.
Salman Khan wants to thank fans for their support with a special song in his upcoming Eid biggie, Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Titled Selfie, the song is said to be a fun-filled number that defines the 49-year-old Bollywood superstar as a bad boy with a heart of gold. According to sources in the film unit, director Kabir Khan could use the song right at the start of the film as the hero’s big introduction scene. A special five-day schedule was planned for Salman to shoot the song on a set that cost crores.
Selfie has been composed by hotshot music director Pritam, who promises a peppy, foot-tapping number to fans. The choreographer of the song is Remo D’Souza. Apparently, the brief given to Remo was to create some never before energetic steps for the songs because Salman wants to try something new with the number.
Salman is currently in Kashmir to wrap up the final schedule of the film, and the makers have meanwhile confirmed launching the trailer of Bajrangi Bhaijaan with the Kangana Ranaut-starrer Tanu Weds Manu Returns, slated for a May 22 release. Although Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a far bigger film than Tanu Weds Manu Returns, the decision to attach the film’s trailer with Kangana’s film was taken because both films have a sort of heartland connect.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan marks Salman’s return opposite Kareena Kapoor for the first time since Bodyguard. In between, Kareena had done the special item number Fevicol se in Salman’s Dabangg 2. Their latest outing together is incidentally co-produced by Salman, Kabir Khan and Rockline Venkatesh.
The film is said to be an action romantic drama that narrates the love story of a Muslim boy and a Brahmin girl. Meanwhile, after completing the shooting of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Salman will focus on shooting Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. The film is slate to open on Diwali 2015.
