'Salman doesn't follow protocols'


In an interview with Mid-Day, Kabir said, "Pawan Putra Bhaijaan is what Salman is calling it. It is definitely being written, He mentioned that it is happening because he is excited. I have not read the script, but Vijayendra sir will [always] write something exciting. The idea of [creating] a sequel never excites me. I will never make a sequel to my film only because [the original] was successful. If [I find] a great story, I will be happy to make one." The filmmaker further added, "Salman doesn't follow [protocols] of formal announcements, he talks from his heart." 


Salman had portrayed the character of 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' in the 2015 blockbuster that also starred Kareena Kapoor Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Harshaali Malhotra. The script was written by K V Vijayendra Prasad.
