Katrina Kaif Replaces Priyanka Chopra in Salman Khan-Starrer Bharat, Confirms Ali Abbas Zafar

Actress Katrina Kaif has replaced Priyanka Chopra in Salman Khan-starrer Bharat. Director Ali Abbas Zafar, who has previously worked with Kaif in his directorial debut Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Tiger Zinda Hai, confirmed in a statement on Monday that he is immensely excited to collaborate with the actress, again.

"I am extremely excited to work with Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan once again for 'Bharat'. We have had exciting collaborations in the past and it is very interesting to work with the duo once again. It is very delightful to work with the immensely talented actress yet again," the director said.

On Friday, Zafar had announced that Chopra decided to opt out of the highly-anticipated project for a "very very special" reason, which left many wondering if the actress was getting hitched to Nick Jonas.

"Priyanka Chopra is no more part of @Bharat_TheFilm & and the reason is very very special , she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her... Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life," his tweet read.
