The film will feature Salman sporting five different looks spanning 60 years, wherein a crucial part will showcase the actor in his late 20s, looking much leaner and younger. Salman will also be recreating his Maine Pyaar Kiya look which has created immense excitement amongst the audience. Bharat will be shot across locations in Abu Dhabi and Spain, besides Punjab and Delhi in India.
The film is produced by Atul Agnihotri’s Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and is releasing Eid 2019. It also marks Priyanka Chopra’s return to Bollywood after two years.
