New Delhi: Superstar Salman Khan has some meaty roles to look forward to. The hunk of an actor is currently busy shooting for Race 3 which has him step into the shoes of Saif Ali Khan, who played the lead in first two parts of the franchise.

Salman will be again joining forces with Tiger Zinda Hai helmer Ali Abbas Zafar in Bharat. The film was announced a few days back when Sallu Bhai's brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri shared a picture on Twitter.

Now, the latest on Bharat will surprise you. According to DNA, the film captures the journey of the central character played by Salman from age of 18 to 70 and reportedly the actor will go back to his Maine Pyar Kiya days.

Filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar told DNA, “We have just locked the script. The idea is to make Salman look the way he appeared in Maine Pyar Kiya — from the time he began his career to now. But we will know how much we can achieve only after our complete research is done.”

“We are in talks with the prosthetics and VFX team of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. They had worked on the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Fan, too,” adds Ali.

He further added, “He’s such a good-looking man. He will work a little harder, as I keep pushing him to lose more weight and look younger. He can reduce weight and look 10 years younger within four weeks.”

Bharat is scheduled to hit the screens on Eid 2019. The hunt for the leading lady is on and it will be interesting to see how bags the role opposite the Khan of all seasons.
