Rumours now suggest that either Katrina Kaif or Jacqueline Fernandez is likely to replace Priyanka in the film. They both have worked with Salman in big ticket projects in the past.
Now, a source has been quoted by DNA saying that Katrina has agreed to join the project. The source said, “Producers Atul and Alvira Agnihotri share a warm relationship with Katrina Kaif and when this whole mishap happened, they just called her and sorted out her dates. She will play the lead opposite Salman Khan now.”
However, Priyanka is still a part of Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink. Priyanka will play a mother in the movie which also stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. Roy Kapur Films shared a short video on their Instagram page of the crew getting together and ideating about the film. Priyanka joined the film earlier this month.
Bharat will hit the screens on Eid, 2019.
