Ravi Sharma | May, 27 2019

Superstar Salman Khan says that people leave their husbands for the role like Bharat but Priyanka Chopra choose to get married, hats off to her.

Actor Salman Khan hosted a press-meet to promote his forthcoming period drama Bharat here in Mumbai.

Priyanka Chopra was roped-in as the leading lady in Bharat but she opted out of the film and got married to Nick Jonas. The role later went to Katrina Kaif. But her sudden exit from the film seemed to have ruffled some feathers and Salman is one of them.

Talking about the Priyanka Chopra’s departure from the film, Salman said, “Over Bharat, she chose USA in the ‘nick’ of time. She has worked all her life so hard and when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped the film and got married. Hats off! Usually people leave the husbands for this.”

Salman, however, went on to add that Katrina deserves a National Film Award for the film. He said, “She thinks I am kidding but I don’t think anyone else thinks that. I think there is 1000% chance of her winning the National Film Award.”

Bharat is based on the South Korean melodrama Ode to My Father (2014), which traces the history of South Korea parallel to a man's life, spanning from the 1950s to the 2010s.

The film chronicles Bharat, who is separated from his father during the Partition of India in 1947 till he is reunited with him again. The film covers a span of 60 years, Salman Khan will be seen playing different age avatars ranging from 18 to 70 years of age.

The film is written and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. It is jointly produced by Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Khan Agnihotri, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Nikhil Namit and Salman Khan under the banners Reel Life Productions, Salman Khan Films and T-Series.

The film boasts an incredible ensemble of Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff and more.

The film releases on 5th June 2019.
