After Tiger Zinda Hai and Sultan, Salman Khan is all set to team up again with filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar for their third film, Bharat. The duo has already locked the date and their film will be coming on Eid 2019.
Though, their collaboration is already a treat for all of us. But there’s something more to this!
According to Ali’s quote in Mumbai Mirror, he confirmed that we will see Salman in five different avatars in the film. We will see him donning different looks with the help of prosthetics and VFX in the film which spans 70 years, beginning in the 1940s.
The film is set to go on floors in June and the look test will commence in the first week of February so that the team can experiment more and plan well. Ali told Mumbai Mirror, “Bharat is a beautiful story seen through the eyes of Salman’s character. Since it spans seven decades, we decided to feature five extremely different looks. Each avatar will reflect the character’s transition; reflect on his life and times. We start shooting in June but prep kicks off on February 6.”
Bharat is an official remake of the 2014 Korean drama An Ode To My Father and it will be produced by Salman’s brother-in-law, Atul Agnihotri. It will be shot in Punjab, Delhi, Abu Dhabi and Spain.
On the other work front, Salman is currently shooting for the third franchise of Race in Mumbai. The film is helmed by Remo D’Souza and the film stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem. After shooting in Mumbai, the team of Race 3 will head to Bangkok, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Race 3 is all set to release on Eid 2018.
He is also expected to start the shooting for Dabangg 3 which will be directed by Prabhu Dheva and produced by Arbaaz Khan.
