Recently, while speaking about Bharat at the song launch, Salman told media, "This is more difficult than even 'Sultan' because in 'Sultan', I had to gain and lose weight. I was shooting and then going to the gym. Here also ('Bharat') it is pretty much the same. To look younger I had to lose weight and then as I age I had to put on weight."
When asked whether he had any doubts in playing a man in his 70s, Salman said he found it rather interesting.
"No, because I have played it very differently. I have a beard and grey hair. He is a 70-year-old but he is like a 40-year-old. He has swag, style and energy like a young man. He has humour, style and his enthusiasm is not over yet. I will play it in a younger way even when I play older characters."
Salman, who is known for being critic proof courtesy his huge fan following, said Bharat is a blend of emotions. "The title is 'Bharat' and so that amount of respectability should be there. We have given our best to the film. It is not a pseudo-intelligent kind of a film and that is for critics.
We have made the film for the audience. There are a lot of hardships, struggles, fun and entertainment. He is a middle class family man."
The buzz around Salman Khan's upcoming film, Bharat is simply tremendous. Fans are waiting with bated breath to watch this film during an auspicious time i.e., Eid and if everything goes right, it will bring back Salman Khan into the blockbuster race. Having said that, we have got our hands on the first movie review of Bharat and it's everything impressive.
Bharat is slated to be released on June 5.
