Fans could not ask for more when Priyanka Chopra announced her next project ‘Bharat’ after staying away from Bollywood for close to two years. The award-winning actress was last seen in Prakash Jha’s ‘Jai Gangaajal’, which released on 4th March 2016. ‘Bharat’, which is her comeback film of a sort, has already mounted the shooting floor. And now the news is coming in that Priyanka might start filming her portions from July.
A source close to the development reveals that the actress will wrap up promotions for the third installment of her international show ‘Quantico’ and other international work commitments by June-end and will fly back to India in July to join the team of ‘Bharat’. “She will wrap up promotions for ‘Quantico 3’ and her other international commitments by June-end. She will be back to India and begin to shoot for the Ali Abbas Zafar film from July onwards,” the source told a popular daily.
The source added that before Priyanka comes back, the team will can some important scenes with male lead Salman Khan. “The team plans to shoot a few portions of the film with Salman before PC joins them on the set.”
Besides Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra, ‘Bharat’ also stars newcomer Disha Patani and ace comedian Sunil Grover in important roles. Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, who has previously directed Khan in ‘Sultan’ (2016) and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ (2017) and Priyanka in ‘Gunday’ (2014), the film is being produced by Alvira Khan Agnihotri and Atul Agnihotri in association with T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar.
