No other actor was better suited for “Bharat” than Salman Khan.
That’s according to director Ali Abbas Zafar, who believes there is a personal connection for the actor.
Zafar points out that Salman is especially devoted to his family, and also, the story in “Bharat” mirrors the relationship between the actor and his father Salim Khan.
Expressing how Salman Khan was the right choice, Zafar said:
“I feel that there couldn’t be a better choice to play Bharat than Salman because the film is about a father-son relationship and anyone who is aware of Salman and Salim uncle’s bond will know how close they are to each other and how much respect is there between them”.
“Bharat” follows India’s post-independence history from the perspective of a common man, through the age of 18 to 70.
Salman will be seen sporting six varied looks through the years of his life.
The movie also stars Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Disha Patani and Jackie Shroff.
It is scheduled for release on June 5th.
