Alongside Priyanka Chopra, Salman Khan and Sunil Grover, it has been revealed that Disha Patani is now on board.

Confirming this news, director Ali Abbas Zafar told an Indian daily:

“I’m happy to welcome Disha on board. She is a promising star. For Bharat, we needed someone who was very athletic and yet possessed a kind of vulnerable beauty and Disha perfectly fit the bill. 

The pairing of Salman and Disha in the set up of a 60s circus is going to be very unusual and exciting.”

Also, Disha Patani is thrilled to be a part of this Salman Khan starrer. Sharing her excitement, she states: 

“I am very excited to be a part of Bharat. It is like a dream come true to get an opportunity to work with Salman sir. 

I cannot wait to begin my journey with the entire Bharat team, Atul sir and Ali Abbas sir, whose work I have been a big fan of.”

Ali Abbas Zafar had told a news outlet about the film’s plot. He said:

“Since the story spans over a period of 70 years, there will be many historical references.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.”

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.
