The much-awaited Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Bharat is less than a week away now, and as expected, all the spotlights are on the leading stars of the movie as they are promoting it everywhere. By the looks of it, the movie seems to be quite patriotism heavy and Bhai fans just love to see him play such roles. In a one of a kind movie, this will show Salman Khan’s life journey as Bharat along with the country spanning about 60 years, from the 1960s to 2010s. The movie, from the footage we have seen, will take us through several emotions of war, partition, love, and patriotism.
Coming back to the promotions, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, in the interviews lately, have been spilling a lot of beans, and recently, Salman has shared a throwback incident of him being thrown out in school once. Though how other-worldly we imagine the Bollywood superstars to be, they are as normal as the common man and this is just proof of that.
Sharing how mischievous as a child he was, he recalled the incident and said,
“Once my father (Salim Khan) was passing by and seeing me out on the corridor asked exasperatedly what mischief I had up to now. I confessed that even I didn’t know the reason this time.”
Well, the reason is quite surprising as he later got to know that the teacher had thrown him out of the class because of delayed fee payment. He added,
“The very next day my father paid the fees and the teacher apologised.”
Salman went on to narrate another incident from his childhood when he had hurt his youngest brother Sohail Khan badly, to the extent that the latter started to bleed profusely. He said,
“Long time back, we three were watching the movie ‘Tarzan’ and playing a game that involved stones. I got so engrossed in the game that accidentally, I threw the stone at Sohail who was very young at the time. He went behind the dustbin and within a few seconds, started bleeding profusely.”
“Arbaaz and I got so scared thinking about how badly the family, especially our father will scold us.”
Well, such an incident can be scary then, but all of it becomes memories to laugh at later. Doesn’t all this remind you of your childhood?
Bharat, apart from Salman and Katrina, also stars Jackie Shroff, Tabu, Disha Patani, Aasif Sheikh, Nora Fatehi and Sunil Grover and in supporting roles. The movie is based on a Korean drama ‘Ode to My Father’, the rights of which Atul Agnihotri, Salman’s brother in law bought. The film is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar who has earlier collaborated with Khan in movies like Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. Both the movies were huge box office hits and this one too looks extremely promising. It is produced by Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Khan Agnihotri, Krishan Kumar, Bhushan Kumar, Nikhil Namit and Salman Khan and is slated to open on Eid next week, on June 5.
