It is well known that Priyanka Chopra was announced as the heroine for the Salman Khan starrer Bharat. But just before the film went to the floor, the actress opted out of the project. Katrina Kaif stepped in and Ali Abbas Zafar's directorial is now all set for release on June 5.
While at first the reason for Chopra opting out was not known, very soon it became evident it was because she was planning to get married to American singer-actor Nick Jonas. While talking to a daily, Khan revealed that “She (Priyanka) came to meet me one day and said she is going to get married and hence won't be able to work in the film. I had told Priyanka that we will adjust the dates for her."
But it seems that Chopra was not sure about how long she would take in the wedding preparations and how soon she would be able to join the film. Salman further stated that he would definitely work with her in the future if an interesting role came by.
Bharat is produced by Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Khan Agnihotri, Bhushan Kumar, and Krishan Kumar under the banner of Reel Life Productions, Salman Khan Films and T-Series. The film also stars Disha Patani, Sunil Grover and Tabu in the pivotal roles.
