Ladies and gentlemen, it is here. We now officially live in a post-Bajrangi-Bhaijaan-teaser world.
Salman Khan, whose last release was 2014's 'Kick', is back in Kabir Khan's 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', whose teaser was released online on Thursday evening. It comes just a fortnight after the 49-year-old star was sentenced to five years in jail for a hit-and-run case that occurred in 2002, and the subsequently given bail.
Marking his second collaboration with 'Ek Tha Tiger' director Kabir Khan, Salman plays "a man with a heart" who worships Bajrangbali (Lord Hanuman) and helps save a little Pakistani girl who is lost in India. It is implied that the girl is also mute.
Kareena Kapoor and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Khan's co-stars, are also visible in the teaser but only for a few seconds each. While Siddiqui has the teaser's only real laugh, we don't hear a word from the film's lead actress. Aside from that, it has everything one would expect from such a product: Salman beating people up, Salman dancing goofily, Salman looking self-righteously angry... you know, the works.
Early reactions to the trailer from within the industry were, expectedly, positive.
