In the film, which has Salman in six different looks – from a young circus champion to a 60-year-old man, strong word of mouth has helped attracting more family audience to theatres.
The film is jointly produced by Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Khan Agnihotri, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Nikhil Namit and Salman Khan under the banners Reel Life Productions, Salman Khan Films and T-Series.
The complete ensemble includes Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Sunil Grover, Disha Patani and Jackie Shroff. It traces India’s post-independence history from the perspective of a common man, and follows his life from the age of 18 to 70.
Bharat was theatrically released in India on 5 June 2019, on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr. It received mixed reviews from critics, with praise directed to Kaif’s performance, while the pace, Zafar’s adaptation and screenplay received criticism.
