Sajid Nadiadwala is one of the few people whose opinion matters to Salman Khan. The 'Bhai Of Bollywood' often turns to Sajid to acquire creative advice. Sajid was one of the people to whom Salman had shown the trailer of 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' before viraling it in the digital space. Sajid and Salman's camaraderie dates back to 1996, where the duo had worked on a film together. They returned the following year with 'Judwaa' which brought immense appreciation to the duo.
Sajid and Salman's bond has strengthened over time since. Recently, Salman held a special screening of his upcoming film 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' for Sajid. Sajid thoroughly enjoyed the film and was mesmerized by the latter's performance in the film. He told Salman that he could instantly connect to his "Bajrangi" character in the film. Sajid, who earlier called the actor by his name, now addresses Salman with his nickname "Bhaijaan" ever since watching the film.
Also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' releases on 17th July.
