Bollywood’s Bodyguard creates Box-Office history!
All of Bollywood is buzzing with the latest Salman Khan starrer, Bodyguard with its much anticipated release this past weekend. The film has created box-office history by grossing nearly 88.75 crores in its 5 day opening weekend.
It may echo the name of the Whitney Houston starrer The Bodyguard in Hollywood territory, but let me tell you, Salman Khan’s film is much, much different. To eliminate any confusion, Bodyguard is in no way a remake or version of The Bodyguard. They are two totally different films, that happen to have a similar name.
Lately, Salman Khan’s film have been these fantastical, over the top, action packed thrillers that harp back to the retro-Bollywood days. While its great to see Salman Khan on screen, as he is one of Bollywood’s leading actors, his films require a lot of patience – especially during the moments where the buttons on his shirt magically pop off and his shirt mysteriously tears away from his body revealing his six-pack abs – similar to what we would see in an animated version of Hulk (Dabanng, anyone?).
In Bodyguard, we see his shirt zapped off too. Also note: the jumping biceps in the song trailer below. Classic Salman.
