Salman Khan and Disha Patani are all set to begin their next film, Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat that rolls this Sunday. Priyanka Chopra, who plays the female lead in Bharat, will join the shoot in August. Elaborate sets have already been put up at Mumbai’s Filmistan Studios resembling a circus tent. Later, the shoot will shift to Malta and Abu Dhabi

It has now been revealed that the film set in 60s will have Salman playing a stunt motorcyclist while Disha Patani will be a trapeze artiste. Director Ali Abbas Zafar told Mumbai Mirror, “The idea is to create an Indian-Russian circus like Raj Kapoor’s Mera Naam Joker. Performers from all over the world are flying down for the circus tricks which will be a mix of trapeze hoops and rope stunts. This is Salman and Disha’s introduction. He plays a daredevil stunt motorcyclist in the circus while she is a trapeze artiste.”

The director also shared a sneak peek into Bharat’s prep. “Straps #flying people @Bharat_TheFilm preparation,” he captioned the video.

Disha has been training for her role for more than a month now. A Holi song will also be shot on Salman and Priyanka in Mumbai once the Quantico star joins the shoot. The film will cover a span of 60 years from India in the 1960s to present day.

The film will features Salman Khan sporting five different looks in these 60 years, wherein a crucial part will showcase the actor in his late 20s, looking much leaner and younger. Salman Khan will be recreating his ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’ look
