Continuing the tradition of releasing his films on the festive occasion of Eid, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has booked the auspicious date for his 2019 release titled ‘Bharat’.
Bharat is being directed by filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar and producer Atul Agnihotri with whom Salman delivered the hits like Sultan and Bodyguard respectively
“It’s a journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat,” Agnihotri said.
He further told media that since Bharat is inspired from the Korean movie, the executives wanted “in all fairness to officially own the idea and acquired the remake rights” before they went ahead with the project.
About Khan who will be playing the protagonist, Bharat producer said, “It’s a character that I thought would resonate with him. I’m very conscious of Salman’s fan base and what they want.”
“And once again, I’m convinced that being a family film it’s worthy of coming during the festive time. And anyway, an Eid releaseis always every producer’s preferred choice, Agnihotri said.
