Prianka Chopra to star opposite Salman Khan in Bharat

After much speculation, Priyanka Chopra has been cast as the female lead opposite SalMAN Khan in Bharat. The film will mark Priyanka’s return to the Indian film industry after two years. Priyanka was last seen in Prakash Jha’s directorial Jai Gangaajal.

In a statement, Ali Abbas Zafar said, “Bharat is Priyanka’s homecoming to Bollywood after having proved herself as a performer in a global TV show, Quantico, and in Hollywood. Bharat is rooted in India and its culture, spans over seven decades and travels across the world. Priyanka is the biggest Indian artist globally today and a perfect fit for the film as she brings to the table her incredible talent and international appeal.” Divulging more about the Quantico actor’s role in Bharat, he added, “Bharat is a mature, subtle love story and her character is the soul of the film. She stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Salman in his journey and is the catalyst who triggers what will be a turning point in the plot.”

Priyanka and Salman have earlier worked together in films like Mujhse ShaadiKarogi (2004), Salaam-E-Ishq (2007) and God Tussi Great Ho (2008). Also, filmmaker Ali has directed Priyanka in action thriller Gunday which also had Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. Collaborating with both Ali and Salman after such a long time has left Priyanka excited as she said, “Bharat it is! I’m looking forward to shooting this film and working with Salman and Ali again after a considerable time. I’ve learnt a lot from them in our previous collaborations and am excited to see what this one has to offer. I’m also looking forward to working with Alvira and Atul and the entire team of Bharat. To all my well-wishers who’ve been so patient and supportive, thank you for your constant support and I’ll see you all at the movies!”

Director Ali Abbas Zafar and producer Atul Agnihotri travelled to New York to give Priyanka the narration of the film. She loved the script and was convinced immediately to do the film. Atul who is collaborating with Priyanka for the first time said, “We are all very happy to welcome Priyanka to the Bharat family. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better than her to play this role.”

Bharat is an official adaptation of 2014 Korean film Ode to My Father. The period drama is set to release on Eid 2019.

  1. Priyanka with Salman - 2.43 crore opening GTGH - on 15 August N.H.
    Priyanka with SRK - 14.6 crore opening - Don 2 - working day highest opening
    Too much fun !!

    1. Salman ne priyanka kya dia ?
      Bas 2 disaster movie ..god tussi great ho ..salaame ishq hahaha
      2rs 3rd class attitude ghamandi aadmi salman

  2. Eagerly waiting for the blockbuster jodi whose last 2 films were God Tussi Great Ho and Salame Ishq...

  3. Bhai ki film hai heroine hardly matters. btw pc is sexy and good actress. my first celebrity crush was also pc
    and qayamat se qayamat tak is the worst film of all time
    @Parshya I think you need to watch QSQT. Itni bekar ki acting ki hai aamir nai.u will stop being his pankha

    1. It doesn't suits salmaniac talking about acting and characters. You look better talking about your 'bhai's box oofice records of which you are not even going to get a penny. Think better points next time dude.

    2. Sahi pakde hai

      Sallus acting in Marigold is better than Aamirs acting in whole career


      Sallu jab rota hai tab Mai haas haas ke rote hue bolta Hoon Kash sallu ko acting mein Oscar mil Jaye...

    3. Heroines hardly matters yes of course
      Jo actor Bollywood me 20 saal se tha vo 2007 me rakhi sawant se clash haar gaya

    4. @Sallu chuha hai ha ha ha. Then you need mental treatment. If QSQT is bad film then MPK and HAHK are worst films of all time with worst over acting by non actor Salman. Matlab bakwaas acting ki bhi had hoti hai yaar.

    1. If giving back to back flops is an art than salman is Picasso of it
      90s me 11 lgatar flop
      20s me 6 lgatar flops

      Salman is nothing but a paaltu k*tta of South remakes .. South ka remake nahi krta to aaj ye side role kar rha hota ..south ki blockbuster movies ka remake kr ke career banaya hai or iske fans itna uchal rhe. .akshay ka highest grosser bhi south ka remake Hi hai ab khud soch lo
      Or vaise bhi action masala bhut chalta hai ..tiger me bhi action masala me 150cr kr lia

  4. oh mannnnn!!.. This film is going to be one cracker of a film!!!
    The finest in the industry combined with the mighty!

    1. Abe khud socho lalu fans tiger ne bhi action masala me non holiday me 160cr ka collection kr lia ..eid me 200cr karta ..or salman ne 2010 ke baad 90% movies action masala kia hai is liye itna chala or saath me south ka remakes ...ye hai asliyat aukaatless sallu ki 2010 born star south remake born star action masala born star

  5. Jiski bhi career problem me ho usko Salman ki film me kaam milta hai chahe Bobby deol ho, Katrina ho ya Priyanka. Why Priyanka why are you not working with your ex boyfriend srk, wo tumhare Sath film Nahi karega usko 2 300 crore heroine jo mila hai.
    The difference between Salman and srk is that srk works with successful people while Salman makes people successful.

    Still Priyanka is a good actress and will definitely give a great performance in the film.

    1. Bilkul sahi kaha honest man,, I appreciate ur comment,,,, current example is Katrina kaif ,,,Kat ki saari filme super flop Hui thi fitoor,,,baar baar dekho ,,phantom etc phir salman sir ka Sahara mil aur TZH blockbuster Hui,,,,ye baat salman sir ke haters nhi samjhenge ki salman sir KO flop actress ya actors ke saath kaam karne me koi dikkat nhi hoti h

    2. Don 3 ka script bhi nahi hua
      Priyanka Hollywood me kaam kr rhi thi smjhaa ..ab Hollywood me kaam nahi mila to ab fir Bollywood aai
      Salman ko overshadow kregi fir .salman tubelight ka acting ka bhi record torega is baar

  6. Abe dishonest joker ,tere kehne ka matlab hai ki don & don 2 me teri sister actress thi .

  7. Thanks for accepting that TZH and Sultan worked because of Katrina and Anushka .Salman did nothing in those films .

  8. Priyanka is biggest female superstar ahead from deepika .Mary kom opened to excellent 8.3 crore without any male actor.after 1 week dp's Finding fanny opened to disaster 4.5 crore opening .

  9. Ohh again remake!!
    Arey isko copy paste ke Shiva kuch ata bhi hai!!

    Aur aise bol rahe hai Bharat jaise khud ki script se movie bana rahe hai...

    Aur sab sallu fans uchal rahe hai....

    Kya din aagaye hai sirf copy paste ya sequel dekhne ko mil Raha hai...

    Kuch sikhna hai toh Aamir se sikho
    Dusro ki movie aur sallu fans aise uchlte hai jaise Bhai ne banai ho...

    Sallu yane copy paste ..copy paste yane sallu..

    Mai jab bhi copy paste karne jata Hoon muze sallu aur uske fans yad aate hai..

    Dekho Bhai dekho copy paste hi dekho..
    Copy dekhne ki aadat lagi hai

    Sallu original filme nahi bana sakta kyunki usko pata hai mere fans ullu hai unko Khali copy paste pasand hai toh Mai kyun original fime banau...

    Bharar movie original nahi hai Korean movie ki copy hai isiliye koi curiosity nahi hai isme...

    Likh to Phirse Tubelight on d way!!


  10. This movie will break dangal into lots of pieces in India nakli china aur fake parshya aunty KO kaun puchta h

    1. Ha ha ha ha ha. Good joke. Keep dreaming like a fool. India me Abhi tak aamir ke ek bhi record tod nahi paaya and ab kitni baar abuse they predictions karoge??? Sharm nahi aati??? In India also it will come nowhere near Dangal. Hollywood copy Fuselight yaad hai na??? To ab ye korean remake kya ukhad legi??? Another tubekufht on the way. Dangal ka pair bhi nahi chu paayegi ye flop film India me.

  11. Dekhlo frndss parshya aunty mere se shart harne ke baad ab keh rahi h ki TOH ,BB KO China me 5 din me dho dega aur kuch din pehle kehti thi ki Hindi medium aaram se BB KO dho dega aur mere se bet bhi lagaya tha aur shart harne ke baad ab TOH aa gya shame on u parshya aunty,,,,, tu kya mujhe bollyarena se door karega,

  12. Thank u bharat team for picking PC instead of cheap actors like kat,jacq,shalu rukh khan etc

  13. flop kong ka fan kutta jesa bhokti he,,, saleo,,, tera flop king ko bhol pehle ak hit movie dene ki.

  14. Smart casting of two top class and popular actors, in a film which will have universal appeal. I am looking forward to the product and the international box office bonanza next year. I hope that it will be dubbed in English and Chinese, so that it will take full advantage of its box office appeal.

  15. If the content of the film is anything meaningful, we will have a Blockbuster on our hands. Welcome back to the Indian Screen, Priyanka Chopra...You were certainly missed.
