Bharat, an official adaptation of the South Korean tear-jerker Ode To My Father (2014), has been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. This happens. But it’s okay because all those people who have watched the film and liked it, this is to say a big thank you to them. That means people have liked or not liked a film.

It also features Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover and Sonali Kulkarni in pivotal roles. Everyone’s work is being appreciated. It’s their bread and butter.
