BOLLYWOOD actor Katrina Kaif was a picture of positivity during a media interaction over Bharat. The actor was a number of sensitive questions about being the second choice for Bharat after Priyanka Chopra and how she ended up getting the role.
Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Katrina stated that it didn’t matter who was approached for her role in Bharat first. “I am unaware of who was selected before me for Bharat, Ali Abbas had spoken to me regarding the script and role of Bharat when I was shooting Tiger Zinda Hai with Salman Khan.”
“Everyone has a different perspective of looking at 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 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 continued.
Even since the film’s promotions began, Bharat has been pulled into a needless controversy. In one of his recent interviews for Bharat, Salman had said, “She (Priyanka) 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 people leave their husbands for a film like this.”
Priyanka left Bharat at the last moment as she was supposed to tie the knot with Nick Jonas at the same time.
