Salman Khan's Eid release this year, Bharat, has made more than ₹42 crore on the first day of its release. Looking at the response, the actor thanked his fans on Twitter with a message that read, "Big thank you to all for giving me my career's biggest opening ever. What made me the happiest and proudest is when during a scene in my film, the national anthem is recited and everyone stood up as a mark of respect. There could be no bigger respect for our country than this... Jai Hind." 

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat is an official remake of the Korean film 'An Ode To My Father.' and depicts the history of India through the life of an ordinary man. Responding to the first-day collection, he said, "It is humbling to be showered this kind of love by audiences. I have tried to present Salman Khan in a totally new light and as a totally new hero with 'Bharat'. I'm ecstatic that audiences have liked our attempt to make 'Bharat' a thoroughly entertaining joyride that also has its soul in the right place."

Besides making noise in India and many other parts of the world, Bharat also has become the first ever Salman's film to release in UAE and Gulf. It has also become the biggest release in Australia with screening in 75+ location.

The film also features Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Tabu, Satish Kaushik and Disha Patani.
