After giving two hits (Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai), Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar will team up for the third time for Bharat.
Salman’s lately released movie Tiger Zinda Hai, which also stars Katrina Kaif has already entered 300-crore-club. In an interview with a famous daily, director Ali Abbas Zafar expressed how it feels to work with Salman Khan.
Ali told, “There is a secret method of working with Salman and I will keep that information to myself.
He further revealed, “The face of Indian cinema is changing and you need to make a statement with every film. One must be open to experimenting with genres instead of sticking to one. To keep up with the current landscape, it is important to keep rediscovering the superstar that Salman Khan is. It is imperative that as a writer, I give him the material that enables him to discover new dimensions while portraying his character.”
Ali also disclosed that Salman Khan has an immense knowledge of numerous things including different kinds of cinema. The Sultan director specified, “Salman harbours new ideas. Couple that with the years of experience he has and you will realise he is a powerhouse of knowledge. He watches contemporary movies, documentaries and shows spanning language. His conversations on movies are evolved because he is constantly learning. When you sit and have a conversation with him, you realise the extent of knowledge he has. It isn’t limited to cinema alone, but extends to socio-political topics too.”
In the meantime, Bharat will be a remake of South Korean movie Ode To My Father (2014). The original movie was directed by Yoon Je-kyoon.
