Disha Patani Joins Salman Khan & Priyanka Chopra for ‘Bharat’

Post the phenomenal success of her last film Baaghi 2, Disha Patani has signed her next biggie. She has signed the dotted line for Bharat, which also stars Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra. Director Ali Abbas Zafar shared the news on social media:

Disha shared that she would be playing a trapeze artist in the film.

“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.”  
Ali Abbas Zafar, Director (as told to Indian Express)

Disha is of course ecstatic about the role.

“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.”
Disha Patani, Actor

This would indeed be Disha’s first Khan film.

Bharat will feature Salman Khan in five different looks spanning a period of 60 years, of which, one will be of Salman as a 20-year-old youngster! Bharat is scheduled to release on Eid 2019.
