BHARAT Bharat traces the journey of a man that starts in 1947 and ends in 2002. Producer Atul Agnihotri says, "It's the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat." Speaking about the film, Agnihotri informs, "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." Salman has once again booked Eid for the release of Bharat. The film will hit the screens in 2019, and shooting of the film will begin in April 2018. "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," Atul shares. "We will be shooting in Abu Dhabi and Spain, besides Punjab and Delhi in India. Prep in every department will be elaborate and happening even as we speak. 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 promises.
