All the Bhai fans! Get ready to see your favorite star in a never-seen-before avatar. Megastar Salman Khan, who is currently the face of action films in Bollywood, is about to try something totally different for his upcoming film, ‘Bharat’. In the film, where Salman’s character will span over 70 years, director Ali Abbas Zafar has decided to show the actor in five extremely different looks. That’s right. Ali Abbas, who will be directing this venture, made this surprising revelation in interaction with a leading tabloid stating how Salman will be seen transforming from one look to another with the help of prosthetics and VFX, considering it spans over 70 years from the 1940s.
Ali confirmed the news by saying, “Bharat is a beautiful story seen through the eyes of Salman’s character. Since it spans seven decades, we decided to feature five extremely different looks. Each avatar will reflect the character’s transition; reflect on his life and times. We start shooting in June but prep kicks off on February 6.”
‘Bharat’ is said to be an official remake of the 2014's South Korean film 'An Ode To My Father' which revolves around a young boy’s promise that he made during the chaos of the Korean War. However, the Hindi version of the film will reportedly be different from the original and will be set during India- Pakistan partition. It is also believed to be majorly shot in Punjab, Delhi, Abu Dhabi and Spain.
The rights of the film have been purchased by Salman’s brother-in-law, Atul Agnihotri, and it is slated to release on the occasion of Eid next year.
