Siddique Ismail co-wrote and directed Bodyguard, a 2011 Hindi-language romantic action comedy film. It’s a remake of the director’s original Mollywood film of the same name, which starred Dileep and Nayantara and was released in 2010.
Atul Agnihotri and Alvira Khan Agnihotri produced the film. It stars Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles, as well as Aditya Pancholi and Karisma Kapoor in supporting roles. Raj Babbar, Mahesh Manjrekar, and Hazel Keech also appear in supporting roles.
When it was released, the film set a number of records. It went on to become the highest-grossing opening day film of all time, as well as the highest-grossing single-day film up to that point.
The film broke another box office record by collecting Rupees 1.03 billion (US$14 million) in its first week, making it the highest-grossing Bollywood film to that point. With a worldwide total of Rupees 2.34 billion (US$31 million), the picture was a huge commercial success.
Reliance Entertainment paid Rupees 450 million for the film’s production business, Reel Life Production Pvt. Ltd. Reliance was given co-producer status and an equal portion of the IPR in perpetuity as a result of this.
Bodyguard was released in Dolby Surround 7.1 on 2,250 screens in 70 Indian cities and 482 screens in the rest of the world.
