Bharat Will Have Salman Playing A  Man Who Goes  from 17-65

Salman Khan hates prosthetics.And with good reason. His neurological condition(he had undergone surgery for trigeminal neuralgia in 2011 and was cautioned against excessive stunts and makeup as his skin needs to breathe) makes it hard for him to breathe if he has a beard wig or other facial props slapped. This is why we never see Salman in disguise.

 No matter what he plays Salman Khan looks like Salman Khan.

 In his aversion to prosthetics, Salman is completely at one with Shahrukh Khan.

 But Salman’s equation with prosthetics is about to change. In his next film Bharat to be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar(of Tiger and Sultan fame) Salman has to go through a spectrum of age changes from approximately 17 years to 65.

Various possibilities including the hiring of the younger actor were considered and  discarded.

Says a  source, “The Bharat team considered the prospect of getting a Salman lookalike to play the young Salman.  But Salman  quickly discarded  that line of  thought and agreed  to take on the entire role from age  17 to 65.”

  Apparently, Salman will go through a series of looks tests to decide his final appearance at various stages of his character’s life.

“All the prosthetics may aggravate his neurological condition. But it’s a risk Salman will take for the sake of authenticity,” says a source close to the project.
