After Disha Patani's appearance in the earlier poster, Kaif makes an appearance on the new one as 'Madam Sir'.

Bharat's posters seem to be going down the time travel route. The latest poster from the film turns the clock back to the 1970s with Salman Khan playing the angry miner, while Katrina Kaif makes an appearance as 'Madam Sir'.
Khan released the poster on his social media platform earlier today.
Aur phir humare zindagi mein aayi 'Madam Sir'😉 #KatrinaKaif #BharatKaJunoon@Bharat_TheFilm @aliabbaszafar @atulreellife @itsBhushanKumar #Tabu @bindasbhidu @DishPatani @WhoSunilGrover @sonalikulkarni @norafatehi @nikhilnamit @reellifeprodn @SKFilmsOfficial @TSeries pic.twitter.com/qYrN389i16— Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) April 17, 2019
The poster captures two separate elements of the film. The sight of Khan as a middle-aged miner is a throwback to a cult 1970s moment with Amitabh Bachchan working as a miner in Kaala Patthar (1979).
The poster also marks the appearance of Kaif, who seems to be playing a love interest for Khan in the film. However, in his post, the actor addressed her as 'Madam Sir'. The reference seems to imply that Kaif will be playing a senior engineer who runs the mine, and her costume also seems to suggest the same.
The film by Ali Abbas Zafar is an official remake of the Korean film, An Ode To My Father (2014). The film is scheduled for release in theatres on 5 June.
