Over the past one decade, Salman Khan seems to have marked the festival of ‘Eid’ under his trademark. The Bollywood superstar who has worked in many South India film remakes, will now appear in ‘Bharat’, the official remake of 2014 Korean film ‘Ode to My Father’ which showcased the modern Korean history from the 1950s to the present day through the life of an ordinary man.
Even though Salman’s last Eid release ‘Tubelight’ bombed at the box office, most of his blockbuster films, be it Sultan or Bajrangi Bhaijan have come on this festival.
‘Bharat’ will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar who also directed Salman’s last blockbuster ‘Sultan’ and is being produced by his brother-in-law, Atul Agnihotri.
‘Bharat’ is scheduled to go on the floors in April 2018 and the shooting will cover locations such as Abu Dhabi and Spain, besides Punjab and Delhi in India. “Bharat will be about the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat.”, Atul Agnihotri said.
Salman’s fans, however, will not have to wait till 2019 to see him on big screen. ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ , the second installment of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, will be released on 22nd December.
