Salman Khan surprised all his fans as he dropped the much-awaited trailer of Bharat co-starring Katrina Kaif and Disha Patani, two days before its announced release date. The trailer was supposed to release on April 24 earlier. Talking about the trailer, it has all the trappings of being a blockbuster. The trailer follows a middle-class old man Bharat, who takes us back in time to 1947 and from there on a roller-coaster journey of a man along with the nation starts.
While fans were going crazy over the trailer of Bharat and Salman Khan's surprise of releasing it two days earlier, Shah Rukh Khan too, it seemed like, was bowled over by it. Quote retweeting Salman's trailer tweet, Shah Rukh was quick to reply, "Kya baat hai bhai!! Bahut Khoob."
Bharat is an official remake of South Korean film Ode to My Father. The movie has been shot on a huge scale and features Salman Khan in different avatars. The trailer itself shows his character's journey from a 20 something young man to a 70 something man. While in his 20s, Salman is shown to be working for a circus, who then moves on to different jobs from a mine worker to a Navy officer.
Apart from Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Disha Patani, Bharat also features Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Sonali Kulkarni, Tabu, Shashank Arora, Nora Fatehi and Asif Sheikh among others. The movie will also feature a cameo by Varun Dhawan.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Gunday, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai fame, Bharat is co-produced by Salman's brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri. Bharat is slated for a June 5 release.
