Bhaijan not bothered by legal notice

MUMBAI: Indian superstar Salman Khan has dismissed a legal notice slapped on him and the makers of his upcoming film Bajrangi Bhaijaan saying that it does not bother him.

“It (legal notice) doesn’t bother me. I don’t think any religious group could think like this, as religion teaches to follow and be respectful towards other religions. Every religion respects other person’s religion,” Khan told reporters at a song launch event of his film.

“I don’t think any religious group can protest over the title. Don’t malign them. Islam means peace. Tell me one group that is against peace and harmony,” he said.

A local from UP had recently sent a legal notice to Salman and director Kabir Khan raising objections on the title and some scenes in the film stating that ‘Bajrangi’ stands for a Hindu God and it can’t be linked with ‘Bhaijaan’, and that it is hurting Hindu sentiments.

Launching a Eid party number Aaj Ki Party Meri Taraf Se for his fans, Salman said the song would not be a part of movie but they would consider adding it later depending on the response to the film.

Directed by Kabir Khan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan will hit the screens a day prior to Eid on July 17.
