Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's much-anticipated venture 'Bharat' is all set to hit the silver screen on June 5, 2019. Ahead of the same, on Friday, Salman and Katrina had a question-answer round with fans during a social media live. The actors answered several interesting questions asked by their fans about themselves and their film.
As revealed by the makers, everyone knows Salman will be featured in five different age groups in the upcoming venture. As the film will follow his character's journey from being a fresh-faced youth to a bearded old man, the actor had to make some drastic changes in his appearance. During the fan interaction, a Twitter user asked Salman how challenging was it to play different versatile characters (referring to the age graph) in the same film.
While Salman agreed to the fact that it was indeed challenging as he fits in neither of the age groups, the 'Kick' star also added a hilarious twist to his answer saying he doesn't even consider himself of the age group he is in, hinting that he is still young at heart.
"It was indeed challenging because I am in an age group that I neither fit in the older group nor in the younger. Also, I don't consider myself of the age group I am," he said.
However, when asked about which role was more difficult to play old or young, the actor said playing the younger version more difficult for him as he had to gain and lose a lot of weight in six months owing to the requirement of the role.
Katrina also opened up about the same and said that she also had found it very challenging to mould into an older character and match with their thought process.
