After months of speculations, now it is confirmed that Salman Khan has been paired opposite Priyanka Chopra in Bharat.
On joining the Bharat family, Priyanka said in a press statement, “Bharat it is! I’m looking forward to begin shooting this film and working with Salman and Ali again after a considerable time. I’ve learnt a lot from them in our previous collaborations and am excited to see what this one has to offer. I’m also looking forward to working with Alvira and Atul (Agnihotri, Salman’s sister and brother-in-law and film’s producers) and the entire team of Bharat.To all my well-wishers who’ve been so patient and supportive… thank you for your constant support and I’ll see you all at the movies.”
Zafar shared Salman’s picture from the sets and tweeted, “And it begins “Bharat” @BeingSalmanKhan . A journey of a man and a nation together . Eid 2019.”

While Ali has worked with Priyanka in Gunday, Salman did Mujhse Shadi Karoge and God Tussi Great Ho with her.
Infact, Salman vowed many years ago to not work with Priyanka Chopra. Do not ask why. It’s one of those vague offences she must have caused the emotional Khan that he refuses to forgive her for. Not that PC is a female Vivek Oberoi in Salman’s life. In fact she is very close to Salman’s sisters and makes it a point to visit the Khans’ residence Galaxy Apartments every time she is in Mumbai. Now after this announcement that Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra seem to have buried their differences.
We wish all the best for the movie and hope that it proves to be biggest Salman Khan starrer ever
