Salman Khan-starrer ‘Bharat’ books Eid 2019 release date

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Atul Agnihotri, ‘Bharat’ is a remake of a South Korean film.

The Salman Khan-starrer Bharat, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, has booked Eid 2019 as its release date,Ahmedabad Mirror reported. Bharat is an official remake of the South Korean drama Ode To My Father (2014), which charts modern Korean history from the 1950s to the present through a single character. The movie will be produced by Atul Agnihotri, the former actor and Khan’s brother-in-law.

“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,” Agnihotri told Ahmedabad Mirror. He decided to adapt Ode to My Father after he watched it at the Berlin Film Festival.

“It [Bharat] 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,” said Agnihotri. The film will reportedly go on the floors in April 2018, and will be shot in Abu Dhabi, Spain, Punjab and Delhi.

Agnihotri had also produced Bodyguard with Khan in the lead. The 2011 Eid release made big money at the box office.

“I’m very conscious about Salman’s fan base and what they want,” Agnihotri said about booking an Eid release. “And once again, I’m convinced that being a family film Bharat is worthy of coming during the festive time. Anyway, an Eid release is always every producer’s preferred choice.”

Khan was last seen in Tubelight in July. Bharat is the actor’s third film with Zafar after the 2016 hit Sultan and the December release Tiger Zinda Hai.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
