After delivering super hits like Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai, Bollywood’s most loved on-screen couple Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are all set to sizzle the screens once again in Bharat. Confirming the news to a leading daily, the filmmaker stated that he is very excited to work with  Salman and Katrina again. They have had interesting collaborations in the past and Katrina got on board for the film in ‘Nick’ of time.

Earlier this week, Ali Abbas Zafar had announced on his official Twitter handle that Priyanka Chopra will no longer be a part of the project and the reason behind that is very very special. She informed the makers of the film about her decision in nick of time and they are very happy for her.

The filmmaker further added that they will announce the leading lady of the film soon. They have been shooting non-stop and simultaneously preparing for international shoots.

When Salman Khan’s father Salim Khan was quipped if the actor is miffed with Priyanka because of her decision to quit the film, he responded that If Priyanka is not doing the film then let her be as such things happen in the industry. It was not the nth hour and sometimes they happen for the date, money or the role aspect. He further added that Salman or the team is not upset with Priyanka Chopra.

Along with Bharat, Katrina Kaif will be seen in Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Thugs of Hindostan and Zero along with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma.
