"Yeh toh sirf teaser photo hai... Abhi aagey aagey dekho hota hai kya."
It really has been a month of madness for our favourite Bollywood star, Salman Khan.
From court hearings, global fan frenzy, to Kashmir tourism promotions, it is possible Sallu Bhai has become an bigger star of Indian cinema.
Now fans’ dreams have been answered, as the First Look of Salman Khan’s upcoming film, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, has been unveiled.
The poster itself which was tweeted by the official Bajrangi Bhaijaan team simply sees the upper body of Salman staring piercingly into our welcome eyes.
Salman is dressed in a rugged brown sweater which matches his stubble. He also wears silver earrings and a striking silver locket around his neck.

Directed by Kabir Khan, Salman is known to play a Muslim man in the film, who falls for a Brahmin Hindu (played by Kareena Kapoor).
Understated, yet effective, the poster has created a huge buzz among film fans and the Bollywood fraternity alike.
Director Sanjay Gupta who is currently directing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Jazbaa tweeted out Sallu’s poster with the caption:
“Real SUPERSTARDOM. Teen din shave nahin kiya aur ‘look’ ban gaya. BhaiJaan ka jawaab nahin. :-)))”
Lapping up all the attention, Kabir Khan tweeted out: “Yeh toh sirf teaser photo hai… Abhi aagey aagey dekho hota hai kya 🙂 #BBFirstLook #BajrangiBhaijaan.”
As we might have expected, Salman, who is not one to do things by halves, turned his First Look promotion into a triple Khan threat by roping in megastars Shahrukh and Aamir to personally tweet a glimpse of the poster a day before its official release.
While Aamir tweeted the poster with the caption, ‘Coming Soon…’, Shahrukh opted for a more poetic approach: “I believe Being a brother is bigger than being a Hero. ‘Bhaijaan’ coming Eid 2015. How do u like the first look?”

It is clear that any past animosity between the two Khan’s has long since passed, and SRK was seen showing his support to his ‘Brother’ while Salman’s court case reached its climax on May 6th, 2015.
It is nice to see the ‘frenemies’ getting along for the time-being, and both Khan’s will use the welcome attention to their advantage as both their films release in 2015.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan is most certainly blockbuster-certified, and we are pretty sure that the film will break all records when it releases for Eid from July 17, 2015.
