Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the much awaited new romantic action-adventure featuring two of Bollywood’s most popular stars, Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor, will be released at select Ster Kinekor cinemas today.

The film’s global release date has been timed to coincide with the start of the celebrations for Eid ul-Fitr, which marks the end of the month of Ramadan. Directed by Kabir Khan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan revolves around a five-year-old girl from Pakistan who gets separated from her mother at an Indian railway station. Lost and hungry, she finds shelter at the home of Pavan (Khan), an ardent devotee of Hanuman, a devout Hindu who hails from a robust wrestling family. Bajrangi Bhaijaan is the moving story of Pavan’s quest to fulfill his promise to unite the child with her parents, against all odds.

Set against the backdrop of colourful Chandni Chowk, the film travels from the heartland of Punjab through the deserts of Rajasthan and over the snow-capped mountains of Kashmir. Bajrangi Bhaijaan embodies all that is expected of a Bollywood blockbuster – action, drama, passion and music.

The film is written by Vijayendra Prasad and produced by Salman Khan and Rockline Venkatesh, with the music composed by Pritam Chakraborty. It also stars Harshaali Malhotra and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles. – Citizen reporter
