Bharat is Salman Khan’s next film after Race 3, which is being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Bharat is a highly ambitious projet and it will be fascination to see Salman ageing from 18 to 70, which is basically a lifetime. Older look can be easily achieved by make up but to create his younger look, makers will have to use extreme vfx. Biggest of VFX artists around the world have mentioned that it is most difficult to do VFX on a human being in comparison to a visual imagery of infrastructure.
This kind of VFX has been used by a few film makers in the world. Master of this was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in which Brad Pitt ages from 80 years old to a few months, a life in reverse order. This form of technology has been used on Chris Evans for Captain America: The First Avenger, in which his whole body was shrunk with the face as well. Hugely successful de-ageing was done to Robert Downey Junior in Captain America: Civil War, where for a few minutes he was aged to 17. Shahrukh Khan has done this technique in his film Fan and it was one of the most successful VFX experiment in the world.
Salman Khan will be the second actor from Hindi film industry to go through this facility of technology and use it in a massive way in his film. Ali and Salman are both very excited about this film as they have announced the release date on EID 2019. Ali and Salman have just delivered Salman’s career biggest hit by the name of Tiger Zinda Hai and their previous collaboration called Sultan was also a blockbuster. Salman’s upcoming film is Race 3 and after wrapping this shoot he will start Bharat because VFX film making always takes time. Plot of the film can have Salman ageing from 18 to 70 or him playing multiple characters varying in that age group.
