Ali Abbas Zafar directed Bharat is a remake of 2014 South Korean blockbuster Ode to My Father. The movie also stars Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff and Sonali Kulkarni in important roles.
Khan’s character in the film is named Bharat (named after the country), and when asked what his surname, caste or religion, here’s what he says…”I cannot dilute respect for myself or this country, by adding another name next to Bharat”.
The movies chronicles Salman’s journey from a child to a man in his seventies. Has been digitally de-aged to look younger for certain portion of the film.
“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,” film’s director Ali Abbas Zafar had said earlier in an interview.
