Kabir Khan further spoke about the title of the film and indicated that it was coined by Salman Khan himself. “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 Vijendra 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.”
Kabir Khan also mentioned how Bajrangi Bhaijaan changed his life for good and said, “We had a lovely association. Had it not been for that collaboration with Salman, my career and position in this industry would not be what it is. But everything does boil down to the script. We’ll see what happens.”
