This Bollywood heartthrob will play the role of young DHIRUBHAI AMBANI in Salman Khan’s Bharat
After the box-office success of Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will next be seen sharing screen space in the currently under production film Bharat. Earlier it was Priyanka Chopra who was the leading lady in the movie but she walked out of the project and the role went to Salman’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif. According to the sources, Varun Dhawan has also joined the project and will play the role young Dhirubai Ambani.
The source adds, “Ali and team are keeping the details of Bharat under tight wraps. Though we all know that the film is a remake of the Korean flick Ode To My Father, the team has been pretty discreet about their given roles. But, yes Varun Dhawan who has joined the cast in a small role will be seen playing the younger version of a well-known Indian businessman.” When asked for details of the role the source continued, “Earlier it was unclear whether Varun’s cameo would be a song or a role, but now it is known that he will be seen playing the younger version of the late Dhirubhai Ambani in Bharat.”
The source also revealed that unlike their earlier pairings where Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif were equals, we will see Katrina boss over Salman. “In Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai both Salman and Katrina were equals. However in Bharat, Katrina will be playing Salman Khan’s boss”, exclaimed the source.
Bharat will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and is stated to release on June 5, 2019.
