‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’ set for release in Bangladesh

After Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’, another Bollywood film is all set for its Bangladesh release. This time it is Salman Khan’s ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’, reports Times of India.

The importing company recently submitted an application to the Information and Broadcasting Ministry of Bangladesh they were quite confident that the approval for importing 'Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan' to Bangladesh will come soon. Finally, the Ministry of Information has granted permission for the movie’s release in the neighbouring country.

As part of the importation deal, in exchange for releasing ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’ in Bangladesh, A recently released Bangladeshi film 'Kosai', directed by Ananya Mamun, will now be released in India.

The government of Bangladesh recently granted permission for the import of Indian films. The ministry specified that a maximum of 10 films can be imported in a year. After the decision, ‘Pathaan’ was finally released in Bangladesh on May 12 and now it’s time for 'Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan'.

With its release in Bangladesh, Pathaan created history. Films produced by Bollywood have been banned from cinemas in Bangladesh since the country's independence in 1972, in a bid to protect the local movie industry. However, in 2009, the decision was relaxed to allow Salman Khan’s 'Wanted' to open in the territory. The release was met with protests led by a local film industry organization and the film was pulled from the 50 cinemas it was running in after a week.

Directed by Farhad Samji, ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’ stars Salman Khan, Pooja Hegde, Venkatesh Daggubati, Jagapathi Babu, Raghav Jual, Siddharth Nigam, Shehnaz Gill, Vruoka Chawla, and Vijendra Singh in key roles. Additionally, RRR star Ramcharan has made a special cameo in the movie which was released in India on April 21.
