Priyanka share screen with the newbie in Sallu starrer

Salman Khan’s Bharat has just gone on floors, but it has already been a part of headlines since it was announced.

The film is primarily been making news for Salman’s reunions, first with his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri, Ali Abbas Zafar and then the lead actress Priyanka Chopra.

However, the latest addition to the cast has got nothing to do with any reunion, but will be Salman’s latest heroine.

Disha Patani, who is riding high on the success of Baaghi 2, has been confirmed for the film and will play the role of a trapeze artist in a circus during the 1960s.

“The pairing of Salman and Disha in a circus set-up in the ’60s is unusual and exciting. She is a promising star and for this character, we needed a girl who looked vulnerable and beautiful yet had the physicality of an athlete. Disha fit the bill perfectly,” Ali confirmed the news to Mumbai Mirror.

Disha reacted, “I’m excited to be a part of Bharat, it’s like a dream come true to get an opportunity to work with Salman sir, and I can’t wait for the journey to begin. I am a big fan of Ali Abbas sir’s work.”
