As we know Salman Khan is shooting Bharat in Malta and now Katrina Kaif also flew there to kick-start her part. Katrina yesterday took to Instagram and shared a story as she headed to the Mediterranean island. Along with the picture she wrote: “Destination Malta.”
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar Bharat’s first choice was not Katrina Kaif, the makers first approached Priyanka Chopra but she opted out of the film due to “very, very special” reason that is her engagement with the Nick Jonas.
Well, recently at an award show Katrina revealed, I was only doing the film out of love and respect for her “very dear” friend and past director, Ali.” “Ali Abbas Zafar is a very, very dear friend of mine and we have worked together before. Both of the films were extremely successful and, more importantly, they were experiences for me which were really wonderful and I really enjoyed both the experiences of working with him,” Kaif told.
She also said, “When Ali contacted me, he said, ‘I’m going send you a script and just react and tell me what you think’. I read the script and thought it was absolutely wonderful and I was extremely excited about the character and very happy to be part of the film.”
Talking about the Bharat, it is based on an official adaptation of the South Korean film – Ode To My Father. Produced by Atul Agnihotri’s Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series. Apart from that, Nora Fatehi is also a very important part of the film and regarding that, the director said, “Nora has a special character and contrary to speculation, it’s not an item number. Her role is important to the story and will see her share screen space with Salman and Sunil’s characters. She will be seen in the mid-’80s portion of the film.”
