‘Bodyguard’ promos are on and they are igniting heat in just the way it was always expected. While all the spotlight is (rightly so) on Salman Khan and to an extent Kareena Kapoor, the film’s producer Atul Agnihotri and director Siddique are happy with the way film is showing good hype building for itself.
While Siddique is expectedly gung-ho about his leading lady here, it is but obvious that he has strong sentiments reserved for the biggest superstar actor that he has worked with till date. Though he has been making movies for over two decades and has worked with quite a few actors down South, ‘Bodyguard’ is Siddique’s first ever Hindi film and that too with none less than Salman Khan.
“And you know what, this was a very big responsibility for me,” confesses the mild mannered director, “Salman is number one superstar in India and there are big expectations that audience have from him. The toughest task is to meet such huge expectations. From him, audience want all sort of ‘masala’ as has been the case in his recent superhits like ‘Ready’, ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Wanted’. To make it four-in-a-row has been a huge task for me.”
Also starring Mahesh Manjrekar, Raj Babbar and Hazel Keech in important roles with Katrina Kaif in a specially designed item number, one does hope that Siddique’s promise does hold good once ‘Bodyguard’ releases all over on 31st August.
