- Bharat chronicles Salman Khan's journey from the age of 18 to 70
- "He can reduce weight and look 10 years younger within four weeks"
- Salman Khan's Bharat is expected to release on Eid 2019
Bharat will be a bit different from Salman's other films, where he is seen showing off his well-toned body. (He won't be taking off his shirt anymore). Speaking to mid-day, Ali Abbas Zafar said, "It is important to show Salman in a different light as Indian cinema is changing and leaving a mark with every film is important."
Salman Khan's recently-released Tiger Zinda Hai has broken all his previous film's records, including those of Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan. Without revealing many details, Ali Abbas Zafar hints that the story of Bharat will portray Salman's journey from the age of 18 to 70, reports DNA.
Currently, Ali Abbas Zafar and his team are busy with the groundwork for the film that will involve a lot of age-reduction technique; reason why they are in talks with the same prosthetics and VFX team of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which had previously worked on Shah Rukh Khan's Fan.
Ali Abbas Zafar, who has worked closely on Salman Khan's body transformations during Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai days, said: "He's such a good-looking man. He will work a little harder, as I keep pushing him to lose more weight and look younger. He can reduce weight and look 10 years younger within four weeks." Bharat will be Salman Khan's third alliance with filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar, with whom he has previously worked in Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. The movie will be jointly produced by Salman Khan's brother-in-law, Atul Agnihotri, and T-series scion Bhushan Kumar, and is expected to hit theaters on Eid 2019.
