Age is catching up with actor Salman Khan, at least on screen. The first look poster from Ali Abbas Zafar's upcoming film Bharat captures Khan in a rare greying avatar with a beard to go with. The film, featuring Disha Patani, Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Tabu and Jackie Shroff, will be in theatres on 5 June.
The first look poster captures the profile of Khan looking in the distance. The watermark of 2010 on the side is a reminder of the time period in which this look will feature. Zafar's film is an official adaptation of the Korean film, An Ode To My Father (2014). The film will track the journey of Khan's character from India's independence to the current time.
Jitne safed baal mere sar aur dhaadi mein hain, usse kahin zyada rangeen meri zindagi rahi hain! #Bharat@Bharat_TheFilm @aliabbaszafar @atulreellife @itsBhushanKumar #KatrinaKaif #Tabu @bindasbhidu @DishPatani @WhoSunilGrover @nikhilnamit @ReelLifeProdn @SKFilmsOfficial @TSeries pic.twitter.com/kHaz7kzkXu— Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) April 15, 2019
The poster also offers some leads into the early beginnings of the character. The sight of Shroff trying to help a child with the image of a crowded train in the background seems to suggest the migration during the Partition of India.
Khan's look seems to be fairly simple with the white beard and moustache, but the actor seems to have not gained any more prosthetics to accentuate his ageing.
The film will be out on the festival of Eid this year, 5 June.
