Ali, who has previously worked with Salman in Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai, also shared some photographs from the film sets with Jackie Shroff.
The film is touted to be the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat. It features Salman, 53, in several looks, depicting the changing decades.
Produced by Atul Agnihotri, the film also features Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Disha Patani, Sonali Kulkarni, and Tabu.
