Bharat will be helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar and has Salman Khan playing the lead role. A lot of speculation has been on ever since the film was announced regarding who will be seen opposite Salman in Bharat. The film spans over 70 years and is about a man who witnesses some of the most important happenings of Indian History. It is the Indian adaptation of the Korean film, Ode to My Father.
After reports of Priyanka Chopra being interested in doing the film surfaced a few weeks back when she returned from New York, it faded away when the actress left for another shoot in Ireland without revealing details about any of her upcoming Bollywood films.
Fresh reports suggest that Ali and Salman’s close friend Katrina Kaif can be seen taking up the role of the female lead in the film. Katrina is currently busy with the shooting schedule of Anand L Rai’s Zero opposite Shah Rukh Khan and Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Thugs of Hindostan opposite Aamir Khan. Will the actress now sign a film with Salman in the same year making this year memorable by working with all three Khan’s in 2018? We’ll have to wait and watch for that.
