Salman’s Bodyguard First Day Collections 20 Cr

Actor Salman Khan has scored a hat-trick at the box-office with his latest release, Bodyguard, which net Rs 20 crore on the first day of its release. His two other recent films, Dabanng and Ready, raked in the moolah

While Dabanng collected Rs 14 crore on the first day, Ready garnered Rs 12.5 crore. Till then, these Khan capers hit the silver screen, actor Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots had been the highest first-day grosser with Rs 13 crore.

The massive opening for Bodyguard, which also stars Khan along with Kareena Kapoor, could not have come at a better juncture for Salman Khan, who is battling ill-health. He is in the United States for two surgeries to tackle his neurological problems-trigeminal neuralgia and a form of brain aneurysm. The neuralgia results in painful spasms across the actor’s jaw.
He is scheduled to undergo the procedures within a couple of days. Regarding Bodyguard’s opening, Fun Cinemas’ head of operations Vishal Anand, said, “This has to be the highest-ever opening in Bollywood, beating Dabbang by nearly 15% or so.

” He feels Bodyguard should be able to net Rs 70 crore because of the present five-day weekend due to the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. “It is on the verge of making a record in Bollywood,” he said. Bodyguard could have gained from the fact that there was “30-day lull at the box office”. However, the impending release of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Mausam may change things.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh said, “Salman has become a phenomenon if one goes by the first day collection alone.” He credits the first-day rush to the “Salman phenomenon”. He said, “I feel after Salman has started doing charity he has found a special connect with the audience and they make his films work.”

However, many other industry watchers have panned the film. “In terms of content, ‘Bodyguard’ is an average film as compared to Dabanng and Ready.

One will have to wait and watch to see how it fares beyond the first day,” said a film analyst. Adarsh feels otherwise: “Salman and Eid are a lethal combination. I think this film will break the first weekend record as well.”

Bodyguard – Movie Review Wanted and Dabangg, Salman Khan is back with yet another release this Eid festive season. His latest movie Bodyguard is his usual masala entertainer film, but director Siddique seems to have grown beyond Salman’s limits. The film is sure to rock the family audience with its simple and captivating story.

Bodyguard is remake of Malayalam movie with the same name, which is a romantic-action film. Salman Khan’s rocking performance is the main attraction of the movie. Rajat Rawail’s comedy timings, Himesh Reshammiya and Pritam’s music, Sejal Shah’s cinematography, Vijayan’s action sequences and beautiful costumes and act direction are the other highlights of the film.

he movie Bodyguard has simple and engaging story that is relatable. Nothing much happens in the first half of the film and it runs with a routine Bollywood masala. But the movie turns serious with a twist at the end of the first half. Siddique has shown the best part of the film in the second half. The film has an unexpected twist in the pre-climax, which is completely shocking.

Lovely Singh [Salman Khan] is very punctual and perfect guy in his duties. He is becomes a bodyguard for Divya [Kareena Kapoor], who is the daughter of a business tycoon named Sartaj Rana [Raj Babbar]. He follows her to her college campus, but soon he becomes a menace for her with his over-protective nature. In bid to avoid him, Divya makes up a fake lover, who falls in love with ‘private number’. Who is that girl? Is she really in love with him? Will he gets his true love in her? All these questions are answered in the climax.

With Bodyguard, Salman Khan has returned to a genre he started out with love story. He emotes well in sentimental sequences and he surely rocks the viewers in action, music and comedy sequences. Kareena Kapoor has a tailor-made role and she has really used it to show her acting skills. Rajat Rawail provides perfect comedy timings. Aditya Pancholi, Raj Babbar, Mahesh Manjrekar, Hazel Keech, Asrani and Vidya Sinha have delivered their best to suit their respective roles.

Himesh Reshammiya and Pritam’s soundtracks are major highlights in the technical front and they fit well with the genre. The title track and ‘Teri Meri…’ are sure to rock the audience. Sandeep Shirodkar’s background score is also good. Sejal Shah’s camera work is the other attraction in the technical stuff.

Sallu says he is Katrina’s bodyguard!

Mumbai: Recently Salman and ex- girlfriend Katrina Kaif came together for an item number for Bodyguard’s title track. Apparently Kat did not charge any fee for it either.

With this item number the two will be seen together for the first time after their break–up. The last time they worked together was in ‘Yuvraaj’ back in the year 2008.

Their coming together after break-up has obviously built up a lot of hype around Sallu’s forthcoming film but Salman thinks there is nothing to react, he told a daily.

“What’s there to react? Katrina and I are also doing Ek Tha Tiger together. Likhne waale likhenge jo unka man karega (those who have to write will write whatever they want); they have time to write such things. Why should I waste my energy on it? We would rather work harder on our films.”

A few days back, a tabloid had quoted Katrina as saying thus: ‘I can’t deny my equation with him (Salman) has changed.’

To that Salman retorted, “What equation? I really don’t know what she said. As far as I am concerned, our equation is absolutely the same as earlier.”

The two are also working together for Kabir Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and they seem to be getting along absolutely fine and enjoying it.

Kat recently stated to a daily that she’s comfortable working with him.

“Yes, she is very comfortable with me and my entire family. In fact, she is a part of the family. We have known her for the longest time now,” said Salman.

He also added, “Like in the movie, I play Kareena’s character’s bodyguard, like that I am Katrina’s bodyguard.”

Well, we are amazed at their friendship and we can’t wait to see them in ‘Bodyguard’ now!
