This is Priyanka's first Bollywood movie post-Jai Gangaajal; the movie star has been busy with her Hollywood and the ABC TV show Quantico. She added, "I'm also looking forward to working with Alvira and Atul and the entire team of Bharat".
The global icon has thanked "all well-wishers who have been so patient and supportive" for the constant support.
Ali revealed that Priyanka is a flawless fit for the film as she brings to the table her incredible talent & global appeal. "She brings in outstanding acting, as well as incredible worldwide appeal, to make the scale of the film bigger and even more global". "She is the catalyst at the film's most important turning point". After rejecting a string of offered projects due to her Hollywood commitments, the actress seems to have finally signed a homecoming film.
When we talk about Sultan, we just think about Salman Khan and his fantastic boxing technique and his chiseled body. He will be seen in Remo D'Souza's Race 3, will reprise his role of Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg 3 and also be seen in the Hindi remake of Ode to My Father titled Bharat, which will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Priyanka loved the storyline and was convinced immediately to do the film. They were earlier seen in David Dhawan's romcom, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004), Nikkhil Advani's anthology, Salaam-e-Ishq (2007) and Rumi Jaffrey's fantasy-comedy God Tussi Great Ho (2008).
The director started his prep in London before travelling on to Spain, Poland, Portugal, Malta and Bulgaria. Bharat will release in theaters on this eid. But now that it's official, our excitement has not only doubled up to see PC back in the movies but also her much awaited reunion with Salman Khan, after nearly a decade. It has also come to light that Salman will be sporting five different looks for the film.
