Salman Khan starrer Bharat to commence first schedule at month-end


According to reports, director Ali Abbas Zafar will begin the first shooting schedule of his much-awaited movie Bharat on the 22nd of this month. The film, which is an official remake of South Korean movie Ode To My Father (2014), is being headlined by megastar Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Tabu, Disha Patani and Sunil Grover.

If a source close to the development is to be believed, the makers will commence the first schedule with an important sequence. This sequence will feature Salman Khan, Disha Patani and Sunil Grover.

“We begin shooting an important sequence that has a circus set up. Since Ali Abbas Zafar is very specific about the details, he roped in Bulgarian gymnasts who will be performing acrobatic moves in this sequence. We will be shooting with Salman Khan, Disha Patani and Sunil Grover. Ali has roped in South Korean action director SeaYoung Oh who has earlier worked with Shah Rukh Khan on Fan (2016).”

Besides being the next venture of hit director-actor duo of Ali Abbas Zafar and Salman Khan, Bharat is also in news for being the comeback project of India’s international star, Priyanka Chopra. The actress was last seen in Prakash Jha’s moderately successful film Jai Gangaajal (2016).

Bharat is being produced by Alvira Khan Agnihotri, Atul Agnihotri and Bhushan Kumar.
