In Andhra Pradesh, the disappointment over Salman Khan’s Eid release, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan (KKBKKJ), has been mingled with resentment about how the legendary actor Venkatesh is portrayed in the narrative.
In the movie, Venkatesh plays a supporting role. This has not been well received by his supporters. Fans of Venkatesh in Andhra assumed he would play a similar role to Salman. But in the middle, Venkatesh enters. Salman still claims sole credit for the climactic victory over the enemies. You should be aware that Venkatesh comes from a prominent family of Telugu film performers. They won’t accept his exclusion, according to a well-known Andhra filmmaker.
Perhaps in a show of support for actor-producer Salman Khan, Venkatesh entered the movie with his eyes wide open. “That might be true. But just because I happily accept your invitation to supper at your home doesn’t mean you can give me dry bread. Venkatesh’s stature required a role to match it. It’s inexplicable why he agreed to do this, the outraged filmmaker claims.
