The cast has begun the shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar’s directorial venture Bharat. The film stars Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Disha Patani, Nora Fatehi and comedian Sunil Grover in pivotal roles apart from lead actor Salman Khan. Bharat is set against the backdrop of the Sixties and is an onscreen adaptation of the 2014 South Korean film Ode To My Father.
A few months back, Salman Khan turned photographer for comedian Sunil Grover on the sets of Bharat. The picture of Salman photographing Sunil became viral. Now, it seems the actor is enjoying photography. The producer and Salman’s brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri shared a picture on Instagram in which Salman can be seen exhibiting his photography skills by capturing Varun Dhawan. Atul Agnihotri captioned the post: “Picture perfect.”
If you are thinking what Varun Dhawan is doing on the set of Bharat? He is the latest addition to the movie. As per the reports, the director had approached Varun Dhawan to star in just a particular sequence in the film, which Varun has accepted. So, the actor is on the board for Bharat.
Isn’t it exciting?
Earlier, the film starred Priyanka Chopra in the lead actress role but she opted out of the film and Katrina Kaif replaced her. Talking about her exit 10 days before her shoot was to begin, Salman said, “I am really happy for her. Had we known that she has signed such a big film in Hollywood and known it well in advance, we would not have stopped her from leaving our film. She told us at the very last moment, just 10 days before shoot. My shooting had already begun but we got to know she wants to leave the film just 10 days before shoot.”
Salman further said, “We said of course, if you don’t want to do it, don’t do it. We were given different reasons back then. But whatever the reason may be, the wedding, the movie, or if she doesn’t want to work in an Indian movie, or doesn’t want to work with me, or work only in Hollywood film and TV, these are her reasons. We are really happy and supportive about her doing good work.”
“So what if she doesn’t work here? She is making India proud out there. If she doesn’t work with Salman but works with a big hero in Hollywood, she is making India proud,” the actor added.
