After Priyanka Chopra’s exit from Salman Khan-starrer ‘Bharat, Katrina Kaif is the new face of Ali Abbas Zafar’s film. The shooting of the film will start in September. Katrina and Salman were earlier seen in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ (2012), ‘Yuvraaj’ (2008), ‘Partner’ (2007) and ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya’ (2005).
Ali Abbas said in an interview, “I am extremely excited to work with Katrina and Salman again. We have had exciting collaborations in the past. Katrina got on board in the ‘Nick’ of time for this project.”
Ali Abbas’ confirmation on exit of Priyanka Chopra led to speculation that PeeCee is tying knot with beau Nick Jonas. He wrote on Twitter, “Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of Bharat the film and the reason is very very special, she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her. Team Bharat wishes Priyanka Chopra loads of love and happiness for life.”
Bharat is a period drama which went on floor with a grand circus sequence featuring Salman and Disha Patani. The film will be shot across beautiful locations in Malta and Abu Dhabi, besides Punjab and Delhi in India.
