Katrina Kaif will be seen opposite to Salman Khan in Bharat! Read more to know.
Katrina Kaif will next be seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat opposite Salman Khan and the film will release on June 5, 2019. That Priyanka Chopra was the first choice for Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat is a known fact, and later, due to other commitments and her marriage to Nick Jonas, PeeCee had to walk out of the film at the eleventh hour. Soon after, the makers of Bharat roped in Katrina Kaif opposite Salman Khan but after Priyanka’s exit, a lot has been said about Priyanka’s rapport with Katrina, Salman and Ali but in an interview, Katrina Kaif said that although she wasn’t the first choice for Bharat but she is happy to have bagged the film.
Katrina informed Mirror, “Although I wasn’t Ali’s first choice and it was Priyanka (Chopra), I’m happy it has come to me. When I read the character of Kumud, I felt there’s so much I can do in it and I wanted to immerse myself completely into it. I just hope that I keep getting to play such exciting characters which have enough meat in them.” Everyone knows that Katrina Kaif and producer Atul Agnihotri share a great rapport and after PeeCee’s exit, Atul really wanted Katrina to do the film. “Atul has always been very supportive and really wanted me to do the film. And in the end, that’s what happened. Yes, Salman and I share great chemistry, but when I walked onto this set, I was very clear that the script demanded a different kind of dynamics between us and I had to maintain it,” Katrina explained.
But unlike other films wherein Katrina Kaif usually enjoys on sets with Salman Khan, during the shooting of Bharat, Katrina used to make sure that she is not hanging out with Salman because Katrina’s role of Kumud demanded her to maintain a certain demeanor with Salman. “So, I would not have lunch or hang out with him. It’s different with an action film like Tiger (Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai) where you can chat and chill. But here, I wanted Bharat and Kumud to appear like two people meeting for the first time and forging a connection. I hope you see that in the film,” informed Katrina. A few days back, Katrina Kaif took to Instagram to share a picture of Kumud from Bharat and alongside the picture, Kat penned a heartwarming note as she wrote, “Kumud Raina 1975 …. I had the most incredible time working on this character, the whole journey has been the most exciting for me yet , after working with @aliabbaszafar in three films. Cant wait for everyone to see the film.”
On the work front, after Aanand L Rai’s Zero, Katrina Kaif will next be seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat where she will be seen playing the role of Kumud Raina and the film stars Salman Khan, Disha Patani, Jackie Shroff, Tabu and Sunil Grover in lead roles. Post Bharat, Kat
