The underwhelming performance of Salman Khan’s last release Race 3 (2018) has proved one thing quite clearly that no matter how many stars headline a film, but if it does not have a powerful story to tell, nothing can stop it from sinking at the box-office.
Looks like Salman Khan has learnt his lessons and hence he is taking extra measures to ensure that his forthcoming film Bharat does not become a Race 3. We hear that the superstar is brainstorming ideas with his team to ensure that his next offering strikes the right chord with the audience.
“A lot of the problems stemmed from Race 3’s shoddy script. This time, Salman and team have spent more time writing than they have in any other film. In terms of political resonance, Bharat will be Salman’s most important film yet, and so director Ali Abbas Zafar is consulting with eminent historians to get detailed information about post-partition India,” a source divulges.
The source goes on to add, “Salman can’t afford to get any details wrong in Bharat. If he slips up, he won’t be spared by academicians, intellectuals and activists. So he is being extra-cautious.”
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat also stars Tabu, Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff and Suniel Shetty. The film is produced by Alvira Khan Agnihotri, Atul Agnihotri and Bhushan Kumar. It hits the silver screen on Eid, next year.
