Salman Khan’s Bharat has been in news ever since its announcement. Ali Abbaz Zafar is behind the lens for the movie and the movie’s first shoot began yesterday. A lot has been flowing in about the movie in the recent days, especially a couple of pieces related to the leading lady of the movie. Earlier there were reports that Priyanka Chopra will be signed opposite Salman. However, she was said to have backed out the project due to her Hollywood series Quantico.
But the good news is that Peecee is back! She is making her Bollywood comeback with Salman Khan starer Bharat. While Miss Chopra was reading a couple of scripts in the recent days, she finally said a yes to Bharat.
She confirmed the news recently saying, “Bharat it is! I’m looking forward to begin shooting this film and working with Salman and Ali again after a considerable time. I’ve learnt a lot from them in our previous collaborations and am excited to see what this one has to offer. I’m also looking forward to working with Alvira and Atul (Agnihotri, Salman’s sister and brother-in-law and film’s producers) and the entire team of Bharat. To all my well-wishers who’ve been so patient and supportive… thank you for your constant support and I’ll see you all at the movies.”
Director Ali also confirmed that Priyanka is going to be the leading woman of the film. He recently said, “Bharat is Priyanka’s homecoming to Bollywood after having proved herself as a performer in a global TV show, Quantico, and in Hollywood. Bharat is rooted in India and its culture, spans over seven decades and travels across the world. Priyanka is the biggest Indian artist globally today and a perfect fit for the film as she brings to the table her incredible talent and international appeal.”
We are super excited for the movie which is an official adaptation of 2014 South Korean film Ode to My Father. Salman and Priyanka will be reuniting after 10 years in the movie. Coming to the first look of the movie, it is right here.
The movie is scheduled to release on Eid 2019. Are you excited seeing the first look of the movie? Let us know in the comments section below.
