Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are all set to win the audiences over with their performances in Bharat. The Ali Abbas Zafar directorial is this year's Eid release and fans have been quite excited for the film after the trailer was released last month. In a recent chat with a news agency, director Ali Abbas Zafar revealed that he spent several days thinking about a perfect name for the lead character of his upcoming film and the director says he even delved into mythology until he got a perfect title in Bharat. 

For the unversed, Bharat is a remake of a Korean film Ode To My Father. Ali mentioned that the title of the film had to be in sync with Indian sensibilities. "I told Salman I'll make the film as not only his but the nation's journey. But I needed to know what the character should be called," Ali told PTI.   

Sharing about the options he came up with instead of Bharat, Ali said, "I thought Ram is an ideal hero from mythology. Could the character be called Arjun because he is doing it for his dharma, karma? Or should he be called Karna, a selfless hero. What do I call the film?"

He added, "I felt if he is synonymous with what the nation has been over the generations, he should be named after the country. One night at 3 am, I was tossing on the bed, thinking hard, and then I had it: 'Bharat'." The film is slated to release on June 5 and also features Disha Patani, Tabu, Sunil Grover, Sonali Kulkarni and Jackie Shroff in pivotal roles.

I feel bad that people r trolling Salman n Katrina n you have to promote the movie. The trollers whoever they r should understand that Salman is bringing business to the industry. Stop trolling him rather bring money to industry. He is the only superstar risking to work with any producer so that production houses earn more n start producing more movies. Whole industry should come together in support of Salman.
