"Desh logon se banta hai, aur logon ki pehchaan unke parivaar se hoti hai. Tujh mein poora desh hai, Bharat" This power packed dialogue perfectly encapsulates the true essence of Bharat, an endearing story about a man’s sacrifices to abide by a promise made to his father. Transcending you into Bharat’s journey, Zee Cinema will air the World Television Premiere of Bharat on 20th October, Sunday at 8 pm.
With Bharat, Director Ali Abbas Zafar marks his third association with the mega star Salman Khan and yet again the movie successfully crossed 200 Cr+ just like the previous ones. Starring Salman Khan in the titular role, the movie is a perfect blend of drama, comedy, romance, emotions etc. making it a complete family entertainer. The movie also features Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Sonali Kulkarni in pivotal roles along with Jackie Shroff, Disha Patani and Tabu making special appearances.
It is a heart-warming story that traces Bharat’s journey post his separation from his father Gautam (Jackie Shroff) and sister Gudiya (Tabu) during the Indo-Pak partition in 1947 as a child. With the hope that someday their family will reunite, Bharat keeps the promise made to his father of looking after his family. Bharat takes up every opportunity that comes his way to fulfil the needs of his family. During his journey, he finds a best friend in Vilayti (Sunil Grover) who stands by him through thick and thin and comes across Kumud Raina aka Madam Sir (Katrina Kaif) who becomes the love of his life.
Salman Khan said, “Bharat is a film that I am really proud of. Bharat depicts the jazba of a common man to overcome all the hurdles in life. Get ready to experience Bharat’s incredible journey, the slow-motion style as Zee Cinema airs the World Television Premiere of Bharat on 20th October.”
Speaking about her character Kumud, Katrina Kaif said, “The minute Ali approached me with the script, I said a yes. My character in the movie is very strong and unusual and I had exactly 2 months to prepare for the role. I took it up as a challenge and I am glad that it has turned out so well and it ended up being unlike anything that I have done before. Since the movie spans over decades, the team has done a lot of research on how the characters will look and I had to work harder so that I have a better command over the language. All in all it has been a great learning experience and I hope the audience enjoys watching the movie as much as I loved working on it.”
Sunil Grover who plays the role of Vilayti Khan said, “I was extremely excited to be a part of this project and to share the screen space with Salman Khan. I have always believed in doing script led films and Bharat is one such good story. I am glad that Ali Abbas Zafar gave me the opportunity to essay the character of Vilayti. The whole experience has helped me grow as an actor and become more confident.”
Director Ali Abbas Zafar said, “I love making heartfelt and entertaining movies and Bharat is one paisa vasool movie. The success of my films bolsters my belief in making cinema that is accessible and is entertaining and has its heart in the right place. With Bharat, I got to experiment with a different style of filmmaking, the experience was surreal. The energy on the set was very positive and everyone right from Salman to Katrina came with a vibe that was very energetic and different. I am glad that I got to work with such brilliant actors on an equally brilliant film- Bharat. I hope the audience will be able to watch the World Television Premiere of this compelling journey on Zee Cinema.”
Along with the storyline, Bharat’s sound track also won millions of hearts. The chartbuster dance number ‘Slow Motion’ and ‘Aithey Aa’ continues to be a crowd puller with 235 million and 96 million views respectively. In addition, songs like ‘Chashni’, ‘Zinda’ and ‘Aaya Na Tu’ too struck a chord with the audience with the soul stirringly beautiful lyrics.
