It is believed that she has already signed for the movie also.
Talking about the plot of movie Bharat, director Ali Abbas Zafar has said “Since the story spans over a period of 70 years, there will be many historical references. It is essentially about a man who lives through several significant moments from India’s past to present. We are currently working on the film’s pre-production and details will be announced once we are in a position to talk about them.”
According to a source, “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.”
Release of the movie is expected on Eid 2019. Shooting the movie is expected to start in July following to the release of Race 3 with Salman Khan.
