The director Ali Abbas Zafar after the two successful outings with Salman Khan in Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai, is looking forward to their third collaboration in Bharat.
Zafar said the offer to direct the movie, which is a remake of the 2014 South Korean film Ode To My Father, came to him from Salman himself.
Ode to My Father was directed by Yoon Je-kyoon and revolves around a young boy’s promise made during the chaos of the Korean War.
Though Bharat is an official adaptation of the South Korean hit, Ode To My Father (2014), it has been learnt that Salman Khan and director Ali Abbas Zafar have tweaked the script to suit the taste of Indian audience.
Before taking his period drama on floors, Zafar submitted the final draft to the makers of the South Korean film director Yoon Je-kyoon, co-producer Park Ji-seong and writer Park Su-ji who greenlit the revised scrip.
While they were impressed with the Korean drama, Khan felt that the remake would strike a chord with viewers if they added a more emotional flavour to the narrative.
