Salman Khan’s ‘Bharat’ To Have An Eid Release In 2019

Salman Khan’s film Bharat, reportedly an official remake of a South Korean film titled An Ode To My Father, has been booked for Eid release in 2019. Film insider Taran Adarsh reported the news this morning, sharing that the film will go on floors in April next year.

The film will be produced by Atul Agnihotri and directed by Salman’s Tiger Zinda Hai director, Ali Abbas Zafar.


Agnihotri, speaking to Mumbai Mirror, watched the original film at the Busan International Film Festival and thought it would make a good Bollywood film.

“That film is just the starting point for ours but since it was an inspiration, we wanted in all fairness to officially own it and acquired the remake rights before going ahead with Bharat. It starts in 1947 and ends in 2000 and is the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat,” he said.

The film’s shooting will take place in Abu Dhabi and Spain, besides Punjab and Delhi. The next three months, the team has dedicated it for casting.

Meanwhile, Salman Khan has Tiger Zinda Hai, a sequel to Ek Tha Tiger (2012), starring him and Katrina Kaif. The film is scheduled for a December 22 release this year.
