Mumbai: Salman Khan has already booked the 2019 Eid slot with Bharat and reportedly the shoot for the same will go on floors in April 2018. The film is an official adaptation of a South Korean film titled An Ode To My Father and will be helmed by Sultan director Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Salman's brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri. Rumours are rife about Katrina Kaif being roped in for the female lead opposite Salman Khan in the film.
Although no official announcement has been made yet about the casting of female lead. But it would come as no surprise if Katrina gets on board in this film, as her bonding with Salman Khan is really getting stronger post her break up with Ranbir Kapoor.
Salman and Katrina have previously starred together in Partner, Maine Pryaar Kyun Kiya, Yuvraaj, Ek Tha Tiger and the upcoming Tiger Zinda Hai.
Speaking about the project, Atul earlier told Mumbai Mirror, “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. It starts in 1947 and ends in 2000 and is the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat.”
Bollywood's much loved on-screen jodi Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will be seen together in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai. The film is slated to release on December 22.
