Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat went on floor last month and after completing their Mumbai scheduled the team headed to kick-start the second scheduled in Malta. Recently, the main lead of the film Salman Khan shared a picture of himself on his social media account with the caption read as, “Starting the shooting schedule of Bharat in Malta, lovely country.”
The film also starrer with Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Tabu and Nora Fatehi. However, first in place of Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra was on the board but she suddenly called off to the project. Salman Khan plays a daredevil stuntman and Disha plays the role of a trapeze artist in the film.
Salman when asked about Priyanka’s exit from Bharat, said, “I’m really happy for her. If we knew it before that she has been signed for a very big film there, we would never have stopped her. Just that we got to know about it in the very end, just 10 days before her schedule was to begin. She came home. I said ‘no problem, if you don’t want to do it, then don’t do it’. We were given some other reasons at that time, that (laughs), well, you all would understand! That might also be the reason, or maybe this one. Whatever be it – marriage, or some other film or she doesn’t wish to work in India at the moment, or she doesn’t wish to work with me, she just wants to do Hollywood films and TV shows, whatever be the reason, it is her call. We are really happy and supportive about her doing really good work. Even if she isn’t working here, she is making India proud outside. Even if she doesn’t wish to work with Salman, it’s fine, she is working with some big star there. At least it makes India proud. We were pretty okay with that.”
After PeeCee’s exit from the upcoming film, director approached Katrina Kaif opposite Salman Khan and the diva also said yes. Salman Khan took to his Twitter announced her entry and tweeted, “Ek sundar aur shusheel ladki jiska Naam hai Katrina Kaif …. Swagat hai aapka #Bharat ki zindagi mein …”
