Devi Sri Prasad and Salman Khan have spelled magic together in their previous collaborations. The duo are set to do it yet again with Khan’s upcoming film with Pooja Hegde, reportedly titled Bhaijaan. Prasad is also composing music for Varun Dhawan’s upcoming film Bawaal as well. The composer recently opened up about the similarities he saw between Khan and Dhawan.
In conversation with ETimes, Prasad spoke of how he had known Dhawan only for a brief time now, and didn't know much about him compared to Khan. Prasad had collaborated with the latter for quite a while now, having worked on Khan’s films such as Ready(2011) and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo(2015). But although he did not know Dhawan well personally enough, Prasad said that he loved the actor’s films and how he ‘maintained’ himself.
Prasad revealed that Dhawan had wanted to work with him ever since hearing the composer’s song Bharat Ane Nenu. The composer said that Dhawan had loved the song he did for Bawaal, which Prasad said is going to be a beautiful film. Prasad praised director Nitesh Tiwari for helming such an ‘interesting’ film and said it was a joy to work with him as well. Prasad also said that the subject of the film was very ‘musical’.
On the likeness between Dhawan and Khan, Prasad said that the former had a charm similar to which Khan had during the start of his career, when he did films like Maine Pyaar Kiya. “I think somewhere, I can sense the vibe of a younger Salman Khan in Varun Dhawan”, said Prasad.
Dhawan will share the screen with Janhvi Kapoor, Parth Siddhpura and Satendra Soni in Bawaal. The duo had recently kicked off a new schedule of the film in Warsaw. Sajid Nadiadwala has produced the upcoming film.
