As we all know that Priyanka Chopra is no longer part of Ali Abbas Zafar’s dream project Bharat which stars Salman Khan in lead role. We have got some good news for all the Bhaijaan fans out there.
Yeah, you will be rejoiced to know that Salman’s Tigress Katrina Kaif has yet again grabbed this opportunity to play the role in the movie.
Moreover, we can now expect this movie to be a huge blockbuster like their earlier collaborations, Ek Tha Tiger(2012) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017). Also, the actor duo has featured in several movies like Yuvraaj(2008), Partner(2007) and Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya(2005).

Director Ali told Mirror, “I am extremely excited to work with Katrina and Salman again. We have had exciting collaborations in the past. Katrina got on the board in the nick of time for this project.”
According to a source, “Producers Atul and Alvira Agnihotri share a warm relationship with Katrina Kaif and when this whole mishap happened, they just called her and sorted out her dates. She will play the lead opposite Salman Khan now.”
Moreover, Bebo aka Kareena Kapoor Khan was also considered for the role. Sources say that she had already given her dates to another movie.
Around 2 weeks ago, the period drama had gone on the floors with a grand circus sequence featuring Khan and Baaghi 2 star Disha Patani,
Meanwhile, Ali had even shared a glimpse of Bhaijaan from the sets performing a daredevil stunt on a motorbike.
