Starring Salman Khan, ‘Bharat’ will be produced by Agnihotri and will be directed by Tiger Zinda Hai director Ali Abbas Zafar. Sources have also revealed that different parts of the film will be shot in Delhi, Punjab, Spain and Abu Dhabi. The movie is an adaptation of 2014 South Korean film, ‘Ode to My Father’
An Ode To My Father is a story about a man who gets separated from his family during the Korean war and how he manages to reunite with them. It is one of the highest grossing films of South Korea.
Agnihotri said in a statement “I feel I contribute better as a producer. Ali is a friend, I love his work and eventually it’s all about connecting with the source. If you speak to him, you will realise that Ali is far more passionate about the material.”
He continued on the topic of cast for the film, “Casting will be our main agenda over the next three months and since it’s a character-driven story, we will take actors who fit the parts. It won’t be about getting names together but will be honest in its depiction.”
Bharat is a story of a man starting in 1947 and ending in 2000. The story will revolve around a man and a country’s journey, both having the same name i.e. Bharat.
“Bharat is a character that I thought would resonate with him. It’s a huge responsibility making a film with Salman as there are big expectations that come with the job,” said Agnihotri on casting Salman Khan in the lead role.
