With rumours rife about Katrina Kaif joining the cast of Salman Khan’s much talked about ‘Bharat’, the actress has given her take on the hearsay.

Kaif, who is celebrating her birthday today, told Hindustan Times, “I am not a part of that film. My next is Remo D’Souza’s film with Varun (Dhawan), which I am going to start work on, after wrapping up Aanand L Rai’s film, Zero. There is still a little bit of work left to complete that film. I should start work on the dance film by the last quarter of the year.”

BollywoodLife reports that Kaif was not keen on the role in ‘Bharat’ as it wasn’t “promising enough”. A source told the publication, “The character that she was supposed to play isn’t adding much of an importance to the story. So the makers decided to go against the character and drop it; instead of having a leading actress like Katrina sign up for a role and then regret doing it. It was a mutual decision between both Katrina and Team Bharat and it had all been finalised on an amicable note.”
