Salman’s Bharat:  The Real Facts About This Hush-Hush Project



Bharat is going to be Salman Khan’s patriotic pitch  in the Indian market. According to sources,  the  film  whose plot premise  is  based  on  the the successful Korean  film Ode To My Father, will pitch Salman in the same  mould as Manoj Kumar’s Bharat and the  characters that Akshay Kumar has been playing in  his recent films on socially relevant themes .

Says a  friend  of  Salman. “The whole idea behind doing Ode To my Father with Salman is to pitch  him as the face  of India. If you’ve seen the original film  it features the Korean hero(Hwang Jung-min) as he goes through the various phases  in Korean history. The  entire Korean  film is being re-written in the context of Indian history. Salman’s character will be seen going through  various phases in the history of  India, from the Partition  of the country to present day.”
