Salman Khan’s Bharat movie shooting has already started and it is going on with full-swing. Earlier, it was revealed by Director Ali Abbas Zafar that Priyanka Chopra is no longer part of Bharat due to her engagement with Nick Jonas. Since than a lot of news flooded in the media about Peechee and Salman Khan. Well, the rumours has been slowed down as Katrina Kaif has been roped in to play the lead in Bharat.
Ali Abbas Zafar in a conversation with Mumbai Mirror told, “I am extremely excited to work with Katrina and Salman again. We have had exciting collaborations in the past. Katrina got on board in the ‘Nick’ of time for this project.”
Earlier Abbas tweeted, “Priyanka Chopra is no more part of Bharat the film and the reason is very very special, she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her. Team Bharat wishes Priyanka Chopra loads of love and happiness for life.”
Even the producers were not happy with Priyanka Chopra exit and called it an unprofessional. Co-producer of Bharat, Nikhil Namit said, “Priyanka told us she had to exit due to her engagement, two days ago. It was a little unprofessional of her to do it so suddenly.”
Well, now Katrina Kaif has replaced Priyanka in this film, which is one of the most challenging roles. In this film, Katrina has to play five different shades of character from the age of 20’s to 70’s. This will be the biggest challenge for Kat to face in Bharat movie, which is an official remake of South-Korean film Ode To My Father (2014).
Altogether, Katrina has recently completed Thugs Of Hindostan shooting and will wrap up Zero movie by the end of August or early September. From September 2018 onwards, she will join Bharat movie.
