Mumbai, Mar 30 (PTI) Director Ali Abbas Zafar has said that he has “locked” the script for his next “Bharat”, which once again features Salman Khan in the lead.

The film is an official adaptation of 2014 South Korean film, “Ode to My Father”, which narrates modern Korean history from the 1950s to the modern-day through the life of an ordinary man and events such as the Hungnam Evacuation during the 1950 Korean War.

The 37-year-old director shared the news on Twitter.

“God paints a beautiful picture as we lock the final script draft of #Bharat the film… End phase of writing holiday,” Ali tweeted.

“Bharat” will mark the director’s third collaboration with Salman, after “Sultan” and “Tiger Zinda Hai”.

The film will hit the theatres on Eid next year.
