Salman on Thursday took to social media to thank his fans for giving “me my career’s biggest opening ever”.
He tweeted: “Big thank you to all for giving me my career’s biggest opening ever.” “What made me the happiest and proudest is when during a scene in my film, national anthem is recited and every one stood up as a mark of respect. There could be no bigger respect for our country than this... Jai Hind,” Salman added.
Bharat, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, is an official remake of the Korean film An Ode To My Father. The Bollywood film depicts the history of India along with the life of an ordinary man.
After receiving a positive response from the audience, Zafar said in a statement: “It is humbling to be showered this kind of love by audiences. I have tried to present Salman Khan in a totally new light and as a totally new hero with Bharat. “I’m ecstatic that audiences have liked our attempt to make Bharat a thoroughly entertaining joyride that also has its soul in the right place,” he said. The film also features Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Tabu, Satish Kaushik and Disha Patani.
