Salman Khan starrer “Bharat” is going to release on 5th June, 2019, and the fans of the actor are already going gaga over the trailer of the movie. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the flick also stars Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff and others.
Katrina may have impressed many people in the trailer but the fact is that earlier, Priyanka Chopra was signed for the role of Kumud but she left the movie due to some of her personal commitments and later the role went to Katrina.
Recently in an interview, Katrina opens up about replacing Priyanka and bagging “Bharat”. According to her, she knows that she has not been the first choice of the makers but she is very happy for doing this role. After reading the script, she wanted to engross herself completely in this role. Moreover, now she hopes that she gets to play more strong characters like this.
Talking about her rapport with Atul Agnihotri, the producer of “Bharat”, she says that he is very supportive of her and has always wanted her in the movie, which actually happened. Katrina also adds that even though she shares a good chemistry with Salman, , she knew that she had to maintain some distance with him when she started working in the film in order to bring a feel in the character.
She used to have lunch and chit-chat with Salman on the sets in previous movies but this time, she wanted it to look as if Bharat and Kumud were meeting for the first time and for this purpose, she didn’t behave like she used to do during the shooting of other flicks.
After “Bharat”, Katrina will be seen in Akshay Kumar starrer “Sooryavanshi” which is being directed by Rohit Shetty.
