Recently, Salman, as ever, took a dig on critics saying he gets scared when they praise his work. He said, In an interaction with the media here, Salman said: “I get scared when critics praise my work because usually, their thinking does not match with mine or that of my audience. So I wonder why are they giving stars to my film and writing good things about my work?”
“Having said that, in recent times, the kind of films that I have done, I did those because I loved those stories. Also when I do a film, I have a few parameters… I want people to come to the theatre, forget their worries and when they leave the theatre, become happy, with a sense of heroism, or become a better human being… at least (have) the thought of (being) a better human being.”
For his role in the film, Salman Khan has undergone multiple look changes as its timeline is spread across decades – from 1960 till current times. Bharat also stars Disha Patani, Tabu and Nora Fatehi, Jackie Shroff among others. The film is an official adaptation of a 2014 South Korean film Ode To My Father. It is produced by Atul Agnihotri’s Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series. Bharat released on 5th June 2019.
