There has been much speculation and stories surrounding the casting of Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Bharat’. The cast includes Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Disha Patani. While the roles of the actresses in the the film are yet to be announced, it’s speculated that it will be leading ladies and not a leading lady. Although, Zafar says that Patani agreed to do the film regardless of her role in it.
As according to TOI, Zafar said, “The film tracks the journey of a man and a nation, simultaneously. The story spans over 65 years, and every role in the film is important. The idea is to make a movie with many special characters. I narrated the entire story to Disha before I signed her on. She said that she will do the film irrespective of her part in it, because it is a beautiful story. She also added that the film is more important than anybody’s role.”
‘Bharat’ releases next June.
