EXCLUSIVE: Disha Patani to star in Bharat with Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra?

Director Ali Abbas Zafar has managed to pull off a casting coup with his next, Bharat. After signing Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan, Disha Patani has been roped in for the film.

Director Ali Abbas Zafar has managed to pull off a casting coup with his next, Bharat. The film is a remake of the South Korean movie, Ode to my Father. Salman Khan will star in and produce the film. Priyanka Chopra has signed on the dotted line- this will be her next Hindi film after two years.

Disha Patani who has delivered a 100 crore hit with Baaghi 2 has been roped in to star in the film. Earlier, Shraddha Kapoor’s name was being considered for the film, as it is a two-heroine project. However, sources confirm that it is Disha who has been signed for the film.

Ali Abbas Zafar had told DNA about the film’s plot, “Since the story spans over a period of 70 years, there will be many historical references. It is essentially about a man who lives through several significant moments from India’s past to present. We are currently working on the film’s pre-production and details will be announced once we are in a position to talk about them.”

A source had informed DNA, “Salman will sport five different looks in Bharat, which begins with him witnessing one of the most dramatic chapters of our history — the Partition. It’s an Indian adaptation of the Korean movie, Ode to My Father and will be a commercial film with a mix of action, drama and music.”

The film is slated to release on Eid 2019 and will go on floors in July, after the release of Salman Khan’s Race 3.

Haha. Kat #2 in the making

Amazing cast. Can't wait.

Ali said Disha is Sallus love interest and lead not sister

Salman is ROMANCING 32 year old Jacqueline and 30 year old anushka. Also age difference between priyanka and salman is 18 years. Only actresses apt for him are priety, ashwariya, tabu. But all these khans are doing movies with very young actresses be it mahira(33), alia (25) anushka(30) with shahrukh or fatima sana (26) most probably romancing Aamir in TOH. Vinod khanna was 42/when he romanced maduri 21. Bollywood is Chauvinist, has been and will always be..

Then what about jeetendra?? He also romanced 21 years younger actresses in 80s like sridevi.

It's great for disha but 53 yr old Nd 25 yr old kaha jamega re but I think ali abbas zafar brings a new twist out of our thoughts

She can play a sister role of priyanka but noooooooooooooot salman

Bharat's makers can be trusted. Story line spans several time lines. A younger Salman is part of the mix. I am putting my faith until proven otherwise they know how and what and why

DISHA CANNOT ACT. Seriously

Why do you say that when Disha most certainly can

Both of these actresses have no talent.

They should have cast deepjka instead and Salman and Deepika would have played Eye-power with each other with glycerin of course.. End of movie!

They should have cast deepjka, Sunny Leone, Urvashi Rautela and my pet turtle for a laffa riot. End of story!

Disha is hot PC is NOT, next.

Priyanka is the hottest

Disha is hot PC is fantabulous actress, can't wait, BHARAT

Yay

Pri is old enough to be Dishas mommy

Yes only if Priyanka had had a child marriage at the age of 9.. Kuch bhi....

Cant they even find a good "actress" in the younger lot.. What about Saniya Malhotra, Radhika Apte, there are many many wonderful actresses.. Why!!

Is she going to be playing his daughter? She is 30 years younger. Quite disturbing!

she's playing his sister

Who has a 30 year younger sister!!

Nope, she will play his SISTER LOL

Okkkk so this 25 year old actress is playing the sister of the 53 year old actor? Sure. Makes sense. Can't wait for tubelight part 2.0

My brother and I have a 20 year age gap. When he got marry I was 5 years old.

Poor Priyanka, no one will notice this aunty in Salmans film.

you wish.

Priyanka is the lead opposite Salman in the movie. What are you going on about?

A female lead next Salman Khan? Good joke.....haha

Chalo at least one film going to someone other than alia phew

NO Nooooooooooooo .shardha kapoor is better then disha

They look very similar

Not really

Salman's new toy.

awesome starcast

Disha loves PC

I like Disha. Good news.

Before people start bashing Salman for starring with a 20-something girl, Disha plays his sister in the movie.

I was wondering how Katrina would play Salman's sister. lol so it was just a rumour. Disha is actually the one playing Salman's sister.

Happy for Disha. She's a huge Priyanka fan so this must be a big moment for her. Congrats Disha!

doubt she will met Priyanka in Salmans film, she has only a small side kick role

* I meant Priyanka only has a small side kick role of course!

Don't knock yourself out with corrections. Both comments are meaningless

Priyanka is the lead heroine.

We all know Priyanka is the lead opposite Salman

We all know what lead opposite Salman means. Now that there's another leading lady, it confirms it even more that Priyanka's role is pathetic.

Priyanka always steals the show and you know that too, that’s why you’re always frustrated

Didn't know you've already watched the movie? I guess this is just wishful thinking because you're so insecure.

awww keep burning.

Disha plays Salman's sister
