Ali Abbas Zafar on signing Katrina Kaif in Bharat
Talking about Katrina Kaif coming onboard, director Ali Abbas Zafar told Hindustan Times, “We're thankful that we had some time in hand. I think Katrina is our best choice, and I'm thankful that she could accommodate (this film) in the middle of whatever she was doing.”
“Katrina is a very big superstar and I've worked closely with her in two films. I shared the (Bharat) script with her and she liked the role,” he added.
For the uninitiated, Katrina Kaif has worked with Ali Abbas Zafar in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Tiger Zinda Hai. It would be the second time in a year that Kat is sharing the screen space with Salman Khan. Last year, she played the female lead in Salman Khan-starrer Tiger Zinda Hai.

It is also believed that Priyanka Chopra will tie the knot with Nick Jonas in September this year.
