Salman Khan books Eid 2019 for Bharat

Eid is generally associated with a Salman Khan release as the actor owns this date. Now he has announced his upcoming film on Eid 2019 titled as "Bharat". The film is directed by filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar and is produced by his brother-in-law, Atul Agnihotri.

Bharat is an official adaptation of 2014 Korean film, ‘Ode to My Father’ which depicted modern Korean history from the 1950s to the present day through the life of an ordinary man. The film will go on the floors in April 2018.

Talking about the movie producer Atul Agnihotri said, “It’s the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat.” Adding about officially acquiring the rights of the Korean film for the remake, he added, “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.”

Happy about teaming up with both Salman and Ali Abbas Zafar, Atul was all praises for the duo. “Ali is a friend, I love his work and eventually it’s all about connecting with the source. If you speak to him, you will realise that Ali is far more passionate about the material,” said the producer on signing Ali as the director for his next.

On Salman being the right choice to play the protagonist in Bharat, Atul insists it’s a decision taken from the heart. “It’s a character that I thought would resonate with him. It’s a huge responsibility making a film with Salman as there are big expectations that come with the job. I’m very conscious of 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,” he added.

Revealing more about the movie, Atul said, “We will be shooting in Abu Dhabi and Spain, besides Punjab and Delhi in India. Casting will be our main agenda over the next three months and since it’s a character-driven story, we will take actors who fit the part. It won’t be about getting names together but will be honest in its depiction,” Atul promised.

Salman Khan is currently shooting for his next release Tiger Zinda Hai. Reportedly the slot of 2018 is booked by another Salman starrer Race 3.

  4. Eid me bharat me bharat ke roop me bharat bankar dhoom machane aaraha hai apna Salman bhai all records will be in danger so pehle se hojao savdhan.
    Salman in & as Bharat

  5. The Title itself is Blockbuster just like the Bajrangi Bhaijaan......With this title Record Breaking opening is guaranteed.....Great Going Salman Bhai.....

  6. The movie is about a man and his family and it using India Pakistan Partition as a Backdrop, if they make it in a right way (proper direction) with a touch of entertainment (just like BB, Dangal, Sultan) then no one can stop this movie, not only it will break all records but it will takes the Bollywood to another level.....I hope it do as I thought.....

    Best Of Luck Salman Sir and BHARAT Team.....

  7. if they made it with proper balance of Emotion and Humor then it will become Best movie of all time, because in paper it is high on content.....Now everything depends on how they execute it......

  8. SRK and SK are true superstar...baki secret super star...ghar ke star...khud ke naam ke aage superstar laga rahe hai....LOL

  9. In Salman upcoming movies list I am most excited for Race 3 . I think it will be a perfect action thriller .
    Plus heroine is my favourite . Love u Jacquline .
    And gerne is also looking very exciting.

  10. Salman is in hurry.Race 3 isn't started yet.and he booked Eid 2019 also.his last release without EDX was Jai ho 3.9 years ago.

  11. NANHE KHAN URF Amir khan facts....

    RAJA HINDUSTANI=RANI HINDUSTANI...Rani steals the show....Karisma Kapoor all the way winner Amir loser
    RANGEELA = RANGILI....Urmila became over night sensation and steal the show from KHAN...
    Danagal = geeta babitas show....zaira waseem out class this ...
    once again Zaira out perform this limbu khan...and became secret superstar....

    1. Mental patient, this article is nothing to do with Aamir. So obsessed with Aamir. Take a chill pill and enjoy JHMS.

  12. The tubelight disastrous performance somehow made Salman to play safe. The rumors of him associating with upcoming movies are either franchisee of his/other movies or remakes.
    TZH,Race3,Bharat,kick 2 abd dabangg 3. If he want to do sequal than why not he giving dates for No Entry me entry. Being completely honest i think Salman is going on wrong path. Lack of versatility and the fan following he has developed particularly this decade stopping him to experiment. Strictly my opinion, could be right or wrong.

    1. Lack of Versatility are you mad;
      Kick: A theif/Robinhood
      Bajrangi Bhaijaan: A common man/ Honest Man
      Sultan: A Wrestler
      Tubelight: A Man Child/ Slow Learner
      TZH: A SPY
      Race: Negative Role

      Bhai do you even know the meaning of Versatile, go and google it first.....and yes you are wrong...

  13. Now few will say that he book EID so early or he only comes on EID, toh Bhai log whether he book EID or not, no one else have guts to book EID slot, so what is the difference if he book the date so early.....and EID 2018 is best example for this, just few days back Salman book this date (EID 2018) while Diwali and Christmas have already booked by others in the starting of this year.....why nobody book EID then? its because no one can afford to clash with Salman in today's time......Though Salman is always ready for clash and Raees & Padmavati were the recent examples, but both these movies were postponed & preponed respectively.....

    And about why he release his movie only on EID, then I can tell you in a simple way that only a Biggest Superstar can afford Solo Festival Release....Now no matter how much you bark at him but tum GHANTA kuch nahi Ukhad Payoge.....

    So instead of bashing Salman for EID release ask other actors to clash with him......Good Luck

  14. Why r u not doing fresh scripted movie?

    Always remake.. Bore hua iss salman se.eid ke chakkar me isne khali remake dikhaya hai logonko ek do movie chodke

    Sallu fans koi toh samjao isse remake karna band karde.khali eid pe paisa kama raha hai dusronki copy karke bhale hi rights kharidle par wo copy hi hai.

    Ise fresh script kyun nahi milti hamesha remake remake kya isse tum superstar kahte ho jo dusro ki copy karke khudki movie batata hai.

    I like his Tere naam,Sultan,BB.
    Sallu fand tum log iss remake se bore nahi huye.ya khali sallu ko dekhne jate ho.

    1. Salman ne jiski copy usey credit toh diya. Aamir toh copy karke credit bhi nahi deta. 'Ghajini' was remake of a South Indian movie aur woh South Indian movie khud ek Hollywood movie "Memento" ki carbon copy thi. Aur Aamir bolta hai ki usne kabhi 'Memento' dekhi hi nahi.
      '3 Idiots' was adapted from Chetan Bhagat's novel '5 point someone' lekin waha bhi Chetan Bhagat ko koi credit nahi.
      Salman fans bore ho na ho lekin Aamir fans ko kab sharam aayegi?

  15. Sallu fans ek baat such such batana
    Tum log sallu ke remake se bore nahi huye?

    Hamesha remake aur tum log bhai bhai karke dekhne jate ho jabki wo film pahle se hi dekhi hoti hai ya malum hoti hai.

    Jab tak tum log remake dekhoge tab tak sallu remake banayega aur logonko ullu banayega.

    Are bhai kuch apna bhi toh naya kuch dikhao.khali shirt nikalne se khuch nahi hoga.

    Sallu fans tumhara idol remake king hai aur kuch nahi.

    1. Remakes of Aamir: "Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke" (1993) was remake for Hollywood mobie 'Houseboat'. "Mann" was inspired by Hollywood movie 'An Affair To Remember' (1957). "Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin" as inspired by Hollywood movie 'It Happened One Night'.
      pehle tu khud bore hoja phir Salman fans ko bolna.

      1. Thugs of hindosta remake hai ya inspired? It sounds like pirates of carabians. If Any of khan fans know.

  16. First it adaption not remake.
    That's fine if Salman have good story of korean film general lot of ppl don't know about korean film .
    To remade in hindi it good idea at the end public want good story and entertainment.
    If this film have good story and entertainment unlike Tubelight being boring film it will do good business.
    Most of the Bollywood film inspired from some of the other country film or books.
    Newton is best example even barfi.
    For akshay RR,boss ,bhulbhulaya,garam masala,holiday etc all remake.
    Even Salman akshay starer mujh se shadi karogi also remake of Hollywood film.
    Akshay recently not remaking the film.

  17. @parshya Why amir did ghajni being first 100cr film.
    If story is good why not.
    Who knows Korean film it not Hollywood film.
    Bhai film entertain honi chahiye tubelight boring thi.

  18. Amir ki film raja hindustani b old hindi film ki remake hai.
    Ghajni remake hai.
    Did hai k manta nahi remake hai.

  19. Only Kabir and ali abbas zafar..
    Dusra director hai ke nahi.

    Back to back films with
    kabir-3 fims

    Bahot bore chuka hoon yaar iss sallu se..

    1. ab director se bhi dikkat hai tujhe?
      phir to tujhe Fatima Sana Sheikh aur Zaira Wasim se bhi dikkat hoti hogi. woh bhi Aamir ki movies mein repeat ho rahi hain.

  20. @Parshya Aunty ko tension ho rahi hai, that why Salman not do fresh script, but Its funny that Aamir fans talk about fresh script.....
    Ghajini was a copy of south movie
    3 Idiot based on Chetan Bhagat book
    PK was a copy of OMG
    Dangal based on Phogat's life (again nothing new since everyone knows his story)
    TOH is a cheep copy of Pirrates Of the Caribbean

    Abe sharam karo, before pointing on other actors 1st look at your own star.....

    Aamir fans tumhara star Chor King hai or kuch nahi......

    1. Abe pally @S.G. Who told you TOH is copy of children's movie POC? You loser it's completely different movie and it's confirmed by aamir many times that it's no remake. Get a life. Your star is a chor of south movies and other foreign movies not Amir. Get a life.

    2. @S.G. Salman ki puri career remakes pe dependant hai. At least aamir has done only few remakes not like lallu who does remakes after remakes. Sharm Karo lallu fans.
