Katrina Kaif has been confirmed for the role opposite Salman Khan in the upcoming Eid 2019 film ‘Bharat’ directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. After an unexpected exit of actress Priyanka Chopra due to personal reasons, Katrina was the only one who was deemed suitable for the role.
Ali had told a leading daily that “Katrina is a very big superstar and I’ve worked closely with her in two films. I shared the [Bharat] script with her and she liked the role.’’ (Hindustan Times)
Ali when further questioned about if someone suggested Katrina’s name for the film he stated, “The way Salman sir’s and my vision is, we talk about everything. But he leaves the decision to me. Katrina was solely my decision, only for the reason that I’ve worked with her in two films, and her work was very nice.”
We are super excited to see the hottest pairing back together again and having the Ali as a director, it can’t get any better! We hope this journey is super exciting and can’t wait to see the final outcome next year on Eid!! Best of luck to this trio.
Yesterday both Salman Khan & Ali Abbas Zafar welcomed Katrina into the life of Bharat on social media, check out their tweets:
