Salman Khan’s next film is an adoption of a Korean film called “Ode to my father” The actor has been busy in the shooting of Bharat which also stars Katrina Kaif alongside him. The Tiger Zinda Hai duo is back to rekindle the magic on screen with their endearing chemistry.
The film is being helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Ali Abbas Zafar has previously directed Salman khan’s film Sultan. Sultan saw immense success in Pakistan back in 2016. The upcoming film is anticipated to be a hit too. The film is now nearing the end of its shooting and is slated for release on Eid this year.
Seemingly, Salman Khan thinks that the festival of Eid is lucky for him. The actor is accustomed of releasing his films on Eid. However, Pakistan has banned the release of Indian films on Eid in order to let the domestic market of films to flourish here. Does this mean that the Salman Khan starrer will not see release in Pakistan? Or perhaps it will not be able to see a timely release here?
If this film fails to release in Pakistan, it will become the third Salman Khan film which will not release here. Previously, Tiger Zinda Hai and Tubelight did not release in Pakistan at all.
Salman Khan’s Sultan released back in 2016 and since then we only saw his film Race 3 release in Pakistan and that too hit the theaters a week later than India.
Bharat is being produced by Salman Khan’s brother in law, Atul Agnihotri. Atul who has previously made Bodyguard with Salman Khan is also confident that the film will do wonders on Eid.
The producer reportedly said that he believes Salman Khan is the right choice for this film. “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.
