Mumbai: After Race 3, Salman Khan will start working on Bharat, a film produced by his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
The film will be set in the backdrop of India in 1947 and will take us through the events during the country’s partition. Not just that, the film will showcase significant events over a period of 70 years since partition.
According to a report in DNA, a source revealed, “Salman will sport five different looks in Bharat, which begins with him witnessing one of the most dramatic chapters of our history — the Partition. It’s an Indian adaptation of the Korean movie, Ode to My Father and will be a commercial film with a mix of action, drama and music.”
When DNA contacted filmmaker Ali, he said, “The Partition sequences will be shot in Punjab, keeping in mind the minute details which have been researched over the last three months. Original steam engines will be used for this shoot along with art, costumes, and nuances, which will give the feel of that era.”
The title of the film is self-explanatory. We can expect Salman to showcase his patriotic side by essaying a character that has witnessed partition.
The makers of the film have however remained tight-lipped about the rest of the star cast.
Bharat will mark Salman and Zafar’s third collaboration. The duo has already delivered two blockbusters – Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. Slated to release on Eid next year, Bharat may turn out to be another blockbuster.
