Superstar Salman Khan has given two hits with director Ali Abbas Zafar – Sultan (2016) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017). The twosome will again team up for another movie titled as Bharat.
Bharat will be a remake of South Korean movie Ode To My Father (2014). The original movie was directed by Yoon Je-kyoon. Director Ali Abbas Zafar revealed that it was Salman Khan’s idea to do this film.
Ali told a leading news agency, “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. Salman said after ‘Tiger…’, you do this.”
The rights of Ode To My Family have been bought by Atul Agnihotri, who is Salman Khan’s brother-in-law.
It was informed that Bharat will revolve around India-Pakistan partition story. But, Ali denied to comment on the same.
When the director was questioned who will be working in the movie along with Salman, he told, “We will begin March onwards. I want to sleep for a month. We are at the elementary stage.”
