Actor Katrina Kaif was an image of positivism throughout a media interaction over her upcoming film Bharat. The actor was a number of sensitive questions about being the second choice for Bharat after Priyanka Chopra and the way she ended up getting the role.
Speaking to the media, Katrina Kaif stated that it didn’t matter who was first approached for her role in the film Bharat. “I am unaware of who was selected before me for Bharat, Ali Abbas had spoken to me concerning the script and role of Bharat when I was shooting Tiger Zinda Hai with Salman Khan.”
“Everyone has a completely different perspective of gazing things. I cannot be in every Salman Khan film. If Priyanka was chosen for this role then she had her own reasons for not doing it. Doing Bharat was written in my destiny and that I am happy it came to me. When I read the script I simply loved it and I think this is the best role of mine so far,” she continues.
Even since the film’s promotions began, Bharat has been pulled into a needless tilt. In one among his recent interviews for Bharat, Salman Khan had said “Priyanka Chopra has worked all her life, so hard, and when she got the biggest film of her life she dumped that film and got married. Hats off... Usually, individuals leave their husbands for a movie like this.”
Priyanka left the movie at the last moment as she was supposed to tie the knot with Nick Jonas at the same time.
Salman’s comments on Priyanka did not go well with singer Sona Mohapatra, who commented: “Priyanka has better things to do in life, real men to hold out with and a lot of importantly, girls to inspire along with her journey,” adding, “A showcase and poster child of toxic masculinity. Low brow digs at not only a woman who was not in the room but a disgusting disregard and contempt for the woman and colleague sitting next to him in the same room. Unless we call out such serial bad behavior, nothing changes.”
Soon, the superstar’s fans trolled Sona. Responding to the backlash, Sona said: “Trying telling that to his fans who shadow his toxicity and are calling her derogative names on my timeline. They meme her 10-year age gap along with her husband, however handily forget that their idol is close to 20 years older than her. Grow up, you fool, I advise them.”
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat conjointly options Katrina Kaif and Disha Patani. It's slated to release on June 5.
