The year, 2018 is surely going to be very hectic for Bhaijaan Salman Khan as he has more than half a dozen movies in his kitty. While Race 3 and Bharat seem to be progressing in full swing, the makers thought it is the right time to announce the leading ladies of Ali Abbas Zafar directorial Bharat.

According to speculation, the final race was between Baywatch star Priyanka Chopra and Tiger Zinda Hai fame Katrina Kaif. First it was reported that Priyanka will be a part of the movie, post which we heard that she had backed out and Katrina would be seen in the movie.
A few days later, a source clarified that Kat wouldn’t be a part of the film and Priyanka was the only one being considered for Bharat.
“While there has been so much confusion and speculation about the leading lady in Bharat, the makers have chosen to stay quiet as the discussion with several actresses continued. However, they have finalised to have both Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif on board for the movie. Both the actresses will have distinct and important roles in the film and it will be the first time they will feature in one film together,” a source revealed.
If things go as planned then, Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra will be reuniting after nearly a decade as Salaam-E-Ishq was their last film together. On the other hand, Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan were last seen in Tiger Zinda Hai.
