Though he may not be willing to admit it publically, friends of Salman Khan say that he is ‘deeply shocked’ by the box office performance of his last release, Race 3. The film that was expected to rake in upwards of Rs 400 crore, only managed to make about Rs 180 crore. And for Salman, that spells disaster.

Sources say that Salman is busy conducting intense brainstorming sessions with his Bharat team to ensure that nothing goes wrong this time.

“A lot of the problems stemmed from Race 3’s shoddy script. This time, Salman and team have spent more time writing than they have in any other film. In terms of political resonance, Bharat will be Salman’s most important film yet, and so director Ali Abbas Zafar is consulting with eminent historians to get detailed information about post-partition India,” a source says.

Another aspect that the makers are being particular about is Salman’s different looks in the film. Various chapters of Indian history are showcased from his character’s point of view, and so various stages in his life must be represented.

“Salman can’t afford to get any details wrong in Bharat. If he slips up, he won’t be spared by academicians, intellectuals and activists. So he is being extra-cautious,” our source adds.
