A recent report suggests that Priyanka Chopra will be paired opposite Salman Khan in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. The movie will mark Priyanka and Salman’s onscreen reunion, after a decade.
Ever since we last saw her in Jai Gangaajal (2016), fans have been waiting with bated breaths for Priyanka Chopra to announce her next Bollywood project. Every time, Priyanka came to Mumbai, we would assume that PeeCee would announce her next but we are still left waiting. However, her recent trip to India may bear fruit as the actor is on a script reading spree.
And which movie has enticed the global phenomenon? According to a leading daily, Priyanka may star opposite Salman Khan in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. If the news is indeed true, Bharat will mark Priyanka and Salman’s onscreen reunion, after 10 years.
A source revealed to the daily, “Priyanka has also worked with Ali in Gunday (2014) and shares a good rapport with him. This film will see the three of them collaborate for the first time.”
Ali discussed the movie with Priyanka during his trip to New York while the actor was shooting for her American TV show Quantico, which is in its third season underway.
Are you excited to see Priyanka starring opposite Salman in Bharat? Let us know in the comments below.
Salman and Priyanka had earlier worked in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004), Salaam-e-Ishq: A Tribute to Love (2007) and God Tussi Great Ho (2008).
Earlier, while talking about Bharat, Ali had said, “Since the story spans over a period of 70 years, there will be many historical references. It is essentially about a man who lives through several significant moments from India’s past to present. We are currently working on the film’s pre-production and details will be announced once we are in a position to talk about them.”
Bharat is the Indian adaptation of the Korean movie, Ode to My Father and is slated for an Eid 2019 release.
