Bhushan, Atul on board for Salman’s Bharat
The film, announced on the occasion of the star's 52nd birthday, will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar
On the occasion of Salman Khan’s 52nd birthday, producers Bhushan Kumar and Atul Agnihotri announced that they would be co-producing the Bollywood superstar’s new film Bharat, which is to be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
Kumar of T-Series said in a statement: “We have had a long-standing association with Salman Khan from when we acquired the music of Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya. We have produced two other films of his too — Lucky: No Time For Love and Ready, both of which were successful collaborations. Atul and I gel well, and we’ve decided to join hands for Bharat, which will be a touching human drama.”
Agnihotri, who is also Salman’s brother-in-law, added: “Bhushan and I have interacted many times in the past. His sensibility for content matched ours. So, having T-Series on board with us was a smooth and organic process.”
Agnihotri has previously produced Salman-starrers like Hello and Bodyguard. Salman’s latest release, Tiger Zinda Hai, also directed by Zafar, is running in theatres.
