When a film is going to be headlined by megastar Salman Khan, it hogs all the limelight. The same is happening with his next outing ‘Bharat’. To be helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, who has previously directed Khan in blockbuster films like ‘Sultan’ (2015) and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ (2017), ‘Bharat’ has been in news ever since the project was announced a couple of months ago. While Salman Khan was confirmed to be the leading man of the film even before the official announcement, the suspense over its leading lady is now growing by leaps and bounds.
Recently, Bollywood was flooded with reports that Katrina Kaif will reunite with Khan after the runaway success of ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’. But even before her name was officially announced by the makers, stories started spreading that India’s international star Priyanka Chopra will join the forces with the superstar after their last outing ‘God Tussi Great Ho’ (2008). But then it was reported that the Desi girl opted out of the big-ticket movie as she still had portions of ‘Quantico 3’ to shoot for. However, if latest reports are to be believed, something unusual and unexpected is going to happen. According to latest updates, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra both will romance Salman Khan in ‘Bharat’.
A leading entertainment portal quotes a close source as saying, “Both the actresses will have distinct and important roles in the film and it will be the first time they will feature in one film together.”
Well, if the report turns out to be true, fans of all the three actors are going to rejoice like anything.
We are now waiting for an official announcement from the makers.
To be produced by Atul Agnihotri and Bhushan Kumar, ‘Bharat’ is scheduled to release on Eid 2019.
