Vijayendra prasad reveals interesting facts about ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’

Kabir Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ has been receiving overwhelming response globally for its heart-touching story and the fabulous performances by Salman Khan and Harshaali Malhotra. But, many are not aware of the fact that Salman wasn’t the first choice to play the role of Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi.

In a recent media interaction, writer Vijayendra Prasad, who has written ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, said that he had Aamir Khan in mind to play the role of Bhaijaan, but Aamir was busy with ‘PK’ and ‘Dangal’ and hence couldn’t do the movie even though he had loved the script.

He further admitted that not just Aamir Khan, legendary actor Rajinikanth too turned down the film, which was later lapped up by Salman Khan. ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, which hit the screens on July 17th, also had Kareena Kapoor and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles.
