Frankly speaking, all the stories we’ve heard and going to hear in future can be conveniently classified into 5-6 moulds. Hence if one feels a fresh story isn’t really fresh and it has the connotations of being inspired from some other concept or theme, then it’s not a big surprise.
Vijayendra Prasad is one writer-director who is making all headlines @70 with two of his movies making mega noise at the box-office aka ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Bhajrangi Bhaijaan’ for which he has provided the story. Talking about the story of Salman starrer ‘Bhajrangi Bhaijaan’, the writer says he is inspired by Chiranjeevi’s old film ‘Pasivaadi Praanam’.
Besides giving a contemporary touch to Chiru’s story, Vijayendra Prasad gave the movie Indo-Pak background which is working wonders for the movie to fare well both in domestic market and overwhelming reception in Pakistan as well. The writer also was inspired by a Pakistani couple who came to India for their daughter’s heart surgery.
All this together, adding the Hanuman devotee twist to Salman’s role in the movie made Salman to deliver his career’s best performance. Such beautiful story and overwhelming figures! What made Rajnikanth, Aamir Khan, Allu Arjun and Puneeth Rajkumar to refuse the story? Made in Hindi, Prasad’s movie now has pan-Indian audiences.
