After eight years later, Jackie Shroff and Salman Khan will come together in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. The last time both were seen together was in Veer: An Epic Love Story Of A Warrior (2010).
However, unlike their last film, where they clashed with each other, in Bharat, Jackie will play Salman’s father and Priyanka will play Salman’s wife. Like Salman, as they become older in the film, she too will sport five different looks in the movie with the help of prosthetics.
Says a trade source, “The role of Salman’s father may not be a big one but it’s pivotal to the film and shapes Salman’s character and who he becomes later. It was Salman who wanted Jackie to play this powerful role. It starts in 1947 when the Partition takes place and thousands of families are separated and ends in 2000."
The movie is the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat.
Ode To My Father, the film from which Bharat is inspired from, begins with the Hungnam Evacuation in 1950 when many families got separated in Korea and the father tells his son Yoon Deok-soo, ‘If I don’t come you are the head of the family that means whatever happens you put the family first. Now, that you are the head of the family, look after them well.’ Jackie plays Salman’s father and his words remain with the young boy (Salman) right till the end. They get separated during the Partition in Bharat but his father’s words and desire to reunite with him remains right till the end.”
