Bharat teaser: Salman Khan’s narration will get you super excited for the film – watch video

India is celebrating the 2nd Independence Day. The day is a good opportunity for Bollywood to unveil the posters, teasers, trailers and make new announcement. So, making a good use of the day, Salman Khan has released the first promo of the movie. You read it right. Though this promo is merely a logo reveal. As we do not get to see any actors from the film. But we do get a very tiny hint at the plot. After the first few seconds pass, in his calm, dreamy voice, Salman says, “Kuch Rishte Zameen se hote hai, Aur kuch Khoon se.. Mere Paas Dono The” Now, we do not know at the moment about the context of the sentence yet, but we sure are excited.

Earlier the makers had released two stills from the movie, which gave us the hint that the plot will be set in The Great Russian Circus. Earlier in an interaction, Ali had revealed how they have created a circus-like set and what character does Salman really play in the film. He had said, “The idea is to create an Indian-Russian circus-like Raj Kapoor’s Mera Naam Joker. Performers from all over the world are flying down for the circus tricks that will be a mix of trapeze hoops and rope stunts. This is Salman and Disha’s introduction in the movie. He plays a daredevil stunt motorcyclist while she’s a trapeze artist.”

During the initial stage of production, speculations were rife that the jodi of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will be repeated in Bharat. However, the role, for a brief period, went to Hollywood return, Priyanka Chopra. But the actress dropped out of the film a few days prior to the shooting. The reason being her decision to take the plunge and get married to American beau Nick Jonas. Well, it was confirmed soon enough that Katrina will be playing the role she was destined to play and came on board for Bharat.
