SALMAN KHAN’S BHARAT WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM THE ORIGINAL!
As reported earlier, Salman Khan announced his next film with T-Series’ Chairman and Managing Director Bhushan Kumar and Atul Agnihotri of Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd to produce Salman Khan-starrer Bharat, which will be helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
Blockbuster jodi of Salman and director Ali Abbas are coming together again for Bharat to be produced by Bhushan Kumar and Atul Agnihotri. The hit duo who has given us unforgettable films such as Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai together is now being backed T-Series Bhushan Kumar and Atul Agnihotri of Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd for their next venture titled Bharat.
Ali Abbas Zafar said the offer to direct the movie, which is a remake of the 2014 South Korean film ‘Ode To My Father’, came to him from Salman himself. “That film came to me from Salman himself. He gave me the film and said he really likes it and asked me to watch it. I saw it and really liked it.
“(But) You can’t make the film exactly how it is in the original. The socio-political scenario affects your story and the character. But I liked the basic crux of the film,” Zafar said. ‘Ode to My Father’ was directed by Yoon Je-kyoon and revolves around a young boy’s promise made during the chaos of the Korean War.
The film’s remake rights belong to Khan’s brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri. The Hindi film will reportedly be set in the backdrop of the Partition. Ali is, however, tight-lipped about the plot. “We will begin Bharat in March. We are at the elementary stage.” said the director.
Well, let’s see what the makers have it for us in bag!
