After blockbusters like Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai, the duo is reuniting for their third collaboration, Bharat. Months after the big announcement, Zafar had finally started started with the recce. And this first step towards the big-budget film has only added to the excitement around Bharat.Despite more than a year left for the film to hit the screens, Bharat has been in news. Be it Salman’s different looks or the mystery around the leading lady, Salman’s Bharat has become the talk of the town.With Salman busy with Race 3, Zafar has a few months in hand before he begins shooting for the film. But before that, here are a few things that you should know about Zafar’s directorial venture.Old world charmWith four months left for the film to go on floors, Zafar has taken off to London for the preliminary research for his much-anticipated film. “From there they will go into a full scout in Spain, Poland, Portugal and Malta.

And he’s planning to do the same for Bharat too. The film will chronicle Salman’s journey from the age of 18 to 70. The 52-year-old actor will sport five different looks for the film.”Salman sports four-five looks in the film through 60 years, and one crucial part will focus on his late 20s, in which the 52-year-old actor will look leaner and much younger,” a source told Mumbai Mirror.In Bharat, Salman will take on a different role, compared to the action-masala he usually does. “It is important to show Salman in a different light as Indian cinema is changing and leaving a mark with every film is important,” said Zafar. The filmmaker and his team are currently busy with the groundwork for the film, as it involves a lot of age-reduction methods. They are also in talks with the same prosthetics and VFX team of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which had previously worked on SRK’s Fan.An official remake of Korean filmAfter Tubelight, Salman Khan will yet again play the lead in an adaptation of a Korean film. Bharat is the official remake of Ode to My Father which depicts modern Korean history from the 1950s to the present day through the life of an ordinary man. With Bharat set in India, the film will cover some important chapters of our modern history, which definitely includes the most tragic of them all – the partition.Talking about the film, producer Atul Agnihotri had said, “It’s the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat. 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.”Eid releaseIf Eid 2018 has Salman Khan written all over it, 2019 will be no different. It has become almost a ritual that Salman treats his fans to one of his films every Eid, and that’s exactly going to happen in next year as Bhai has already booked 2019 Eid for the release of Bharat. Atul, who’s collaborating with Salman after seven years, said, “I’m very conscious about Salman’s fan base and what they want. And once again, I’m convinced that being a family film it’s worthy of coming during the festive time. And anyway, an Eid release is always every producer’s preferred choice.”No Katrina Kaif, as of nowWhen Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are in the same frame, fireworks are bound to happen. And Tiger Zinda Hai’s phenomenal success at the box office is a proof of it. When Zafar announced Bharat with Salman, rumours of Katrina being roped in as the leading lady spread like wildfire. But Zafar put the speculation to rest when he said that Salman is the only star cast that has been locked. So it seems fans will have to wait a little longer to know about the leading lady in Bharat.advertisementALSO READ | Katrina Kaif, Bobby Deol in Salman Khan’s Bharat?
