Mumbai: After the mega success of his latest 'Tiger Zinda Hai', Salman has re-established his credibility and capability as the superstar of Bollywood. As Salman celebrates his 52nd birthday on Wednesday, there is a good news for all his fans. Salman's brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri and Bhushan Kumar’s T-series have joined hands to produce his next big project 'Bharat', which is an adaptation to the South Korean film Ode To My Father (2014).
'Bharat' will again have Salman working under the direction of Ali Abbas Zafar, who churned out two blockbusters with the superstar in ‘Sultan’ and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the same news on Twitter:
On Salman Khan’s birthday today, here’s a BIG announcement... Bhushan Kumar and Atul Agnihotri join hands to produce their new film #Bharat... Stars Salman Khan... Ali Abbas Zafar [#Sultan, #TigerZindaHai] directs... Eid 2019 release... #HappyBirthdaySalmanKhan— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) December 27, 2017
On the collaboration, Bhushan told Bombay Times, "We have had a long-standing association with Salman Khan from the time we acquired the music of Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya (1998). We produced his two other films Lucky: No Time For Love (2005) and Ready (2011), both of which were successful collaborations. Atul and I gel well so we decided to join hands on Bharat, a human drama that is bound to strike a chord with the audience."
“In life, you just click with some people. Bhushan and I have interacted many times in the past. His sensibility for content matched with ours. So, having his company on board with us for Bharat was a very smooth and organic process," said Atul Agnihotri, to the same publication.
Bharat is slated to release on Eid, 2019....
