Salman Khan fans have been eagerly waiting for the release of the movie. In Bharat, Salman Khan will be seen in five different looks whereas Katrina Kaif's looks are being inspired by the veteran actors of 60's and 70's. Bharat is the official adaptation of a South Korean movie- Ode to My Father.
In an interview, Ali Abbas Zafar, the director of the movie said, “I feel that there couldn’t be a better choice to play Bharat than Salman because the film is about a father-son relationship and anyone who is aware of Salman and Salim uncle’s bond will know how close they are to each other and how much respect is there between them”. In fact, he also added, “Also, the fact is that when you do a film like Bharat, you need a superstar that is identifiable by each and every person in this country and somewhere or the other both these things create a magical bond. Salman’s power and stardom and the relationship he shares with his father get translated very well in his performance in the film, making him a better choice”. Salman Khan values his relationship with his father more than any other relationship in his life. He has learned a lot from him and it has left a deep impact on his life.
Ali Abbas Zafar, thus said that Bharat is actually an ode to Salman Khan's real father, Salim Khan.
