Just about yesterday, the director of the upcoming Salman Khan-starrer period drama Bharat, Ali Abbas Zafar surprised the people who have been waiting for the release of the film in a not-so-pleasant way when he announced that Priyanka Chopra, who was finalized for the female lead of the upcoming Salman Khan film, has walked out of the project. The reason for the same, as hinted by Zafar via this tweet, is her impending marriage with the American singing sensation Nick Jonas.
Shortly after which, we learned that Katrina Kaif, who was reportedly the initial choice for the part in question, has been brought on board but nothing has been made official on that topic as of now.
But, it seems like Kat isn’t the only actress that Zafar has in mind. What makes us say so? If a report that has freshly surfaced online is to go by, the makers of the film have dispatched the script of the period film to none other than Veere Di Wedding star Kareena Kapoor Khan, who was last seen alongside Bhai in Kabir Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan. So, can we say that, in a sense, Kat is competing with Kareena for the spot of the leading lady?
Who would YOU like to see opposite Salman Khan in Bharat out of the two? Let us know!
