The teaser starts with the visuals of an overcrowded train at a railway station in Pakistan alluding to the heart-wrenching pictures from the Partition of India.
His accompanying voice-over says, ” “People often ask me what my surname is, what caste or religion I belong to. I smile and tell them that my father named me Bharat after this country. I cannot possibly reduce the value of such a weighty name by adding a surname or a caste/religious identity.”
In the teaser, the filmmakers describe Bharat as the “journey of a man and a nation together,” and we saw Salman Khan as a daredevil motorcyclist performing exhilarating stunts, a Navy officer and an ageing boxer.
