On Salman Khan’s birthday (December 27th), Bhushan Kumar and Atul Agnihotri have announced their collaboration to produce Salman Khan-starrer Bharat to be directed by none other than Ali Abbas Zafar.
The blockbuster Jodi of Salman and director Ali Abbas come together yet again after blockbusters like Sultan and more recently Tiger Zinda Hai. But this time around, Bharat will also be backed by T-Series under Bhushan Kumar, and Agnihotri’s Reel Life Production Pvt. Ltd.
And honestly, there couldn’t be a better day to announce T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar joining hands with Atul Agnihotri than today, Bhai’s birthday.
Bharat is scheduled to release on Eid 2019.
About coming on board for Bharat, Kumar says, “We have had a long-standing association with Salman Khan from when we acquired the music of Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya. We produced Bhai’s two other films Lucky: No Time For Love and Ready, both of which were successful collaborations. Atul and I gel well, and we decided to join hands on Bharat, a human drama that is bound to touch you beyond measure.”
Speaking about T-Series coming on board, Agnihotri says, “In life, you just click with some people. Bhushan and I have interacted many times in the past. His sensibility for content matched with ours. So having T-Series on board with us on Bharat was a very smooth and organic process for both of us.”
With the raging success of Salman – Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Haibeating Box Office recordings left, right, and centre, we have a lot that we’re expecting from Bharat for sure.
