Bollywood actor Tabu was reported to be playing Salman Khan’s sister in his upcoming film Bharat. However, her absence from the film’s trailer and most of the promotional videos and events sparked speculations about her role and she has now revealed that she just has one scene in the film that also stars Katrina Kaif. An Asian Age report claimed Tabu said she has just one scene in the film so there is no point in joining the promotions.

Earlier, while announcing Tabu’s involvement in the film, director Ali Abbas Zafar had said, “I’ve been a huge fan of Tabu’s work and always wished to work with her. After several meetings with her, I’m happy it is finally happening with Bharat and am looking forward to the shoot.”

Tweeting the pictures, he wrote, “Partition was the most challenging part of (the) shoot, to recreate the scale of this defining moment of history and to keep the emotions Zinda in the middle of that chaos the soul of an extraordinary journey of an ordinary man.”

Currently promoting her film with Ajay Devgn, De De Pyaar De, Tabu will also be seen in Saif Ali Khan’s Jawaani Jaaneman.
