There have been conflicting reports on the release of Salman Khan's upcoming film Bajrangi Bhaijaan in Pakistan. Rumour has it that its release might be delayed in order to accommodate local films (Bin Roye and Wrong No.) being released on Eid. However that hasn't stopped the Bollywood megastar from showing love to his fans on this side of the border.
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Salman didn't hesitate to say that he wouldn't mind coming to Pakistan for the premiere of his film.
"I don't know, I'm promoting it here (India) only but if there is a chance, if there is a premiere I'll definitely go to Pakistan. If the film is releasing there I will go there, of course," said Salman.

All the more reason to rejoice, fans! But there's more. The superstar also revealed that Bajrangi Bhaijaan's music composer Pritam Chakraborty is trying to get him to sing in the film.
"I'm dying to sing, I'm dying to sing for anyone. I just need a good song," confessed the star.
Salman also spoke at length about his character in Bajrangi Bhaijaan and the emotional connection he feels with the little girl in the film.
"For this girl, I'll go everywhere. I will go everywhere for Munni so she meets her parents. I'll go to churches, I'll go to mandirs, I'll go to masjids, so this girl goes back to her mother and father. So we set humanity above religion," said the actor.

Salman also claimed he didn't have to use glycerin while shooting the emotional scenes of the film.
"Emotions were extremely strong, you look at the helpless girl, the shoot was very charged and the tears automatically rolled down, it has never happened to me before," he said.

A prominent Indian filmmaker, while speaking to Bollywood Hungama, cited multiple reasons as to why the film will do well at the box office.
"What certainly works in favor of Bajrangi Bhaijaan is its very title. It is not just the bhaijaan factor that would pull in a staple Muslim crowd which throngs each of Salman-starrers every Eid in any case. The presence of Bajrangi brings in a strong Hindu audience as well. The whole cross-religion element right at the title stage has been very well-integrated into the narrative of the film. You couldn't have a better harmony generating title than this," Bollywood Hungama quoted the filmmaker as saying.
