It was known that Priyanka Chopra was to star in ‘Bharat’ before she opted out and Katrina Kaif took up the leading lady’s role, opposite Salman Khan. However, recent news suggests that Kareena Kapoor Khan could also have let go of the role.
“Recently, I was offered a very big film and of course, without taking too many names because it’s quite personal to me, it was like a really, really big actor, really really big star, I had got this really great opportunity to work with the biggest superstar of India and the choice was about because the film was also going to be shot at seven different countries, and the choice was actually to leave Taimur behind and go for all the seven countries and shoot for over 80-90 days or was it the choice that you know I have to be at home because I have to give this time to Taimur because he is growing up, he needs me around, I can’t leave him for 80-90 days and take off for the shoot,” said Kapoor Khan recently, on her recent radio show, according to Times Now.
She went on to add, “It was also mind over matter, it was something that you would need to think as a mother. After becoming a mother, I had to actually sit back and think that what are my priorities and of course, today there’s nothing that is more important than my son’s happiness, my son’s upbringing and I think I took the best decision because I am getting to spend so much time with Taimur”.
Kapoor Khan and Khan have acted in a number of films together and no doubt she would have been a welcome addition to the cast had she taken up the role.
