The makers of Bharat have shared the first official poster of the film. It features actor Salman Khan in his old avatar and also gives away the glimpses of Jackie Shroff‘s and Sonali Kulkarni‘s characters. While sharing the poster on Twitter, Salman wrote, “Jitne safed baal mere sar aur dhaadi mein hain, usse kahin zyada rangeen meri zindagi rahi hain! #Bharat” (sic), hinting that the character of his life in the film has got many interesting shades.
Salman is shown as a bearded man with glasses and white hair, wearing a crisp checkered tweed blazer while carrying intense expressions in eyes. The poster further features the tagline of the film: Journey of a man and a nation together and highlights the year 2010. Here’s the post:
Another interesting detail about the poster is how it hints at Jackie and Sonali playing a young Salman’s parents in the film. On observing closely, one can see both the actors holding kids and the young boy looking at Jackie’s character in dismay could just be Bharat dealing with the time of partition. Here’s a close look:
