Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Bharat has been making headlines for several reasons. The promotions are going on in full swing and the trailer, poster and songs are earning praise. Now, director Ali Abbas Zafar spilled the beans on how he came up with the movie title.
Speaking to PTI, the director said, "I told Salman I'll make the film as not only his but the nation's journey. But I needed to know what the character should be called. I thought Ram is an ideal hero from mythology. Could the character be called Arjun because he is doing it for his dharma, karma? Or should he be called Karna, a selfless hero. What do I call the film?”
He added, "I felt if he is synonymous with what the nation has been over the generations, he should be named after the country. One night at 3 am, I was tossing on the bed, thinking hard, and then I had it: 'Bharat'.” In no time, he shared the name with Salman Khan and producer Atul Agnihotri. "Producer Sajid Nadiadwala had the title registered under him so I told him about our film. Both Salman and Atul also jumped on it. Once I found the title, I started writing the film."
"To bring out an emotion is the most difficult thing in a film. If you can crack that code, crack the reason you're making the film and how the audience will react, everything else becomes peripheral. Once I understood the emotion we were trying to show the film was set," he explained.
Earlier, the filmmaker revealed that he struggled to write love scenes between Salman and Katrina in the film. Bharat also stars Disha Patani, Jackie Shroff, Tabu, Sunil Grover in pivotal parts.
