On Saturday, Disha Patani, who will be seen with Salman Khan in Bharat, tweeted a unique photo. In it, she is holding a black dress with Radha written over it. She hash-tagged it #Bharat, which suggests that this might be her character’s name in the film.


Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat will see Disha in an important role. The film earlier had Priyanka Chopra in the lead role, but she has now left the project after reportedly getting engaged to singer Nick Jonas. However, she is still a part of Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink.

One of the producers of Bharat, Nikhil Namit, has told Mid-Day that he is unhappy with Priyanka’s decision to quit the film on such short notice. “Priyanka told us she had to exit due to her engagement, two days ago. It was a little unprofessional of her to do it so suddenly,” he told the daily.

Ali has announced that he is in search for a leading lady once again. “Yes yes yes... We will announce the leading lady of ‘Bharat’ soon. We have been shooting non-stop and simultaneously preparing for international schedules,” Zafar tweeted on Saturday.


Ali and Salman have previously worked together in blockbusters like Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. The film is an official adaptation of a 2014 South Korean film Ode To My Father. It is produced by Atul Agnihotri’s Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series.

Bharat, which will be shot across locations in Abu Dhabi and Spain, besides Punjab and Delhi, is slated for an Eid release in 2019.
