Here’s some gossip that’ll get fans of both Salman Khan and Aamir Khan talking. The character of the journalist Rakesh, played by actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, prominently displays a silver and blue bracelet, which is the exact same piece that Salman’s been sporting for years.
Even Salman noticed the similarity. “I loved Peepli Live, especially my character in it,” Salman said, when asked whether he had seen the movie. “I thought he (Rakesh) should have been more justified. But they killed him off.”
Director Anusha Rizvi, too, admits, Basically, Rakesh is from a small town and he’s probably seen Salman’s posters featuring that bracelet. Since imitations of those bracelets are available for R 10, we used that.”
