The last time we saw Priyanka Chopra in a Bollywood film was in Prakash Jha’s Jai Gangaajal and it would not be wrong to say that we have really missed her.
Now, PeeCee is all set to reunite with her co-star of many movies, Salman Khan for Bharat. The film is being helmed by Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai director Ali Abbas Zafar and will also star Tabu and Disha Patani.
While we already know that the movie goes on floors in June with Salman shooting the partition scenes in Punjab, Priyanka will be shooting for the same from July, according to media reports.
A source informed a leading outlet, “She will wrap up promotions for Quantico 3 and her other international commitments by June-end. She will be back to India and begin to shoot for the Ali Abbas Zafar film from July onwards. The team plans to shoot a few portions of the film with Salman before PC joins them on the set.”
Earlier, when asked about starring in Bharat by Esquire, Priyanka revealed “I’ve finished up two films: A Kid Like Jake, which comes out in June. And Isn’t it Romantic? Which comes out Valentine’s Day 2019. I play a spoiled rich woman who is a yoga guru, which is not a thing.
[Bharat] is the Indian movie I signed this year. It’s the quintessential Bollywood movie, which I haven’t done in many years. A lot of them were dramatic and thematic. This one’s going to be out and out entertainment. I’m excited! I haven’t been back to do a movie in two or three years now.”
The official adaptation of the Korean film Ode To My Father, Bharat is slated for an Eid 2019 release.
