Who is Genghis Khan?
Genghis Khan was the founder and first Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his death. After founding the Empire and being proclaimed “Genghis Khan”, he launched the Mongol invasions that conquered most of Eurasia.
There were several campaigns initiated in his lifetime which include Caucasus, Khwarazmian, Western Xia and Jin Dynasties. These campaigns were mostly accompanied by large-scale massacres of the civilian populations – especially in the Khwarazmian and Western Xia controlled lands. By the end of his life, the Mongol Empire occupied a substantial portion of Central Asia and China.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film Bharat features Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan, Nora Fatehi, Tabu, Jackie Shroff, Direction Patni and Sunil Grover in the lead role.
Bharat is scheduled to hit the theatres on June 5.
