Disha Patani has been confirmed to star with Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra in Ali Abbas Zafar’s next ‘Bharat’.
The film, which is a remake of South Korean movie ‘Ode To My Father’, is said to have Patani as the second female lead. She has beaten the likes of Shraddha Kapoor for the star-studded magnum opus.
“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,” Zafar told Pune Mirror.
Patani added, “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.”
The film goes on the floors in July.
