Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer 'Bharat' is creating quite buzz since its announcement. The film, is being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and has been set across several decades and will show Salman's character sporting various avatars. Yet again, Katrina Kaif who has worked in many films with Salman Khan will share screen space with him in this film. Earlier, it was Priyanka Chopra who was doing this movie but she backed out at the last moment and Katrina Kaif was roped in by Zafar and Salman at the last minute.
months after the incident, Zafar has opened about the rumours of Salman and film producers being miffed with Priyanka for getting exit from the film. In an interview with Filmfare, he said, "Well, well, well… there were a lot of things that she was busy with. But I’m not gonna say anything more about my ‘nick in time’ comment on Twitter. We all know the reality and the truth of the situation. As I’ve always maintained, we, as team Bharat, are extremely happy for Priyanka and where she’s in life right now." The director further added that "Whether it was the producers, Salman or me, as adults we understood her reasons and let her go. There’s only happiness between us. We’re friends and will always be friends,"
