Earlier, it was reported that Priyanka Chopra would be opposite Salman Khan in Bharat, which is being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Alas, the news was never confirmed, there was still a question mark. Now, it is being reported that Katrina Kaif might be the leading lady in the film; however, even this news has a question mark.
There were reports that also said Priyanka might be opting out of the fourth season of Quantico to accommodate her dates for Bharat, but these sudden reports of Katrina joining in comes across as quite unexpected. However, hardcore fans of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will surely be elated as their favourite on-screen pair will sizzle on the celluloid again. After the blockbuster success of Tiger Zinda Hai, the trio of Salman-Katrina-Ali could set the cash registers ringing.
And to be honest, Salman and Priyanka’s pair hasn’t been as historic and memorable as Salman and Katrina’s. Mujhse Shaadi Karogi had people talk more about Akshay and Priyanka, and the less said about Salaam-E-Ishq and God Tussi Great Ho, the better.
On the work-front, Salman is all beefed-up and prepped-up for the last schedule of Race 3, after which he’ll start his work on Bharat, where he’ll play one of his most challenging roles yet, spanning from 17 to 70 years old. Katrina, meanwhile, will be seen in YRF’s Thugs of Hindostan and Remo’s dance film with Varun Dhawan.
But will Salman’s experiment with Bharat prove to be a blockbuster or turn out like the tepid Tubelight? Again, a question mark. All we can do is wait till Eid 2019, when the film hits the screens.
