MUMBAI: A special screening of 'Bharat' was hosted for the families who experienced the events of 1947 and the partition, says superstar Salman Khan.

He captioned it: "Special screening of 'Bharat' for the real families who experienced the events of 1947 and the partition."

The screening of the film, which is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, was organised here on Wednesday.

It was held via the 1947 Partition Archive organisation. According to a source, the screening featured seven families who had returned to India separately and reunited over a period of time.
