Cute banter with Harshali Malhotra
Salman’s equation with kids is always magical and we saw that in films like Biwi No 1, Ek Ladka Ek Ladki and Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai. But in Bajrangi Bhaijaan his cute banter with Harshali Malhotra won everyone’s hearts and was truly one of the highlights of the film.

Apart from Harshali Malhotra, versatile actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui also played a key role in Bajrangi Bhaijaan as Pakistani reporter. The camaraderie between him Salman was so natural and fresh that it found an instant connect with the audience.
Salman Khan’s attempt to do something different
Bhaijaan is always popular for his macho image on the silver screen. But he broke the stereotype with Bajrangi Bhaijaan by portraying the kind-hearted and lovable character of Pavan Kumar Chaturvedi. This role was easily one of his best acts till date.
Social message in a subtle manner
Undoubtedly, Salman’s films are entertainers, but Bajrangi Bhaijaan also had the social message of humanity with all the elements that appealed to the moviegoers.
