Superstar Salman Khan is all set to star in his brother-in-law’s production titled Bharat. The film will be directed by his Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai director Ali Abbas Zafar.
Salman will start shooting for Bharat from April 2018 while the film is scheduled for an Eid 2019 release.
Bharat is the remake of the Korean movie Ode To My Father. A source had disclosed to a tabloid, “It is set against the backdrop of the India-Pakistan Partition and will continue to the present day. And so, Salman will be seen ageing through the film. So, he will have different looks throughout the film, depicting various ages.”
What’s exciting is that Salman will be ageing throughout the film – from a teenager to a senior citizen.
The source revealed later, “It will be a combination of prosthetics and age-reduction technology. The makers are getting a special team that will do the prosthetics for the film. For the CGI, the makers are going to use the same technique that the makers of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button used to show different ages of Brad Pitt in the film. But it’s not the same special effects team from Hollywood. They are just using the same technique.”
A source had previously spoken to a leading daily about how the title Bharat belonged to Sajid Nadiadwala and how as a friendly gesture, Sajid happily gave his acquisition of the title.
