Here’s all the scoop you need!
In a conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Ali revealed how they had made the decision of doing Bharat after Sultan and due to limitations in date, he had to do the research work alongside script writing. “We made a decision of making Bharat after Sultan, so I was writing Tiger and simultaneously everything into my research work for Bharat. The writing and research for Bharat took one-and-half years before we went on to make the movie. There was no break for me between Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat as we were bound by Salman’s dates.”

The director also spoke around the famous ‘larger-than-life’ movie as he shared, “There is no element of fantasy in Bharat. It’s larger-than-life yet grounded, real and yet contemporary and mainstream for today’s audience. And because it’s real it requires even more spend to make it look so – like you have to get those newspapers made, photographic references, vintage cars and costumes etc. Detailing was very important and minutely followed. Because it’s a movie obviously we take a little creative leave to create your own style but majorly when you see what they are wearing is very specific to the time frame.”
Bharat will witness Salman Khan in various looks amidst the 7 different eras starting from 1947-2010. The movie also stars Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff and will see a June 5, 2019 release.
