Actor Disha Patani says it was an incredible experience to work with Salman Khan in "Bharat" as she found the superstar extremely humble. She stars as a gymnast in the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial, which releases on June 5. Disha said she was not "intimidated" but excited to work with the star. "It's a good opportunity and I don't know if I'll ever get it again. When Ali sir told me that the film has Salman sir, I was thinking there's an age gap but the fact that he's shown in the film in his younger age, it was exciting. "He is such a nice person, very grounded. It was an experience to work with him and I learnt a lot," the actor said in an interview on Wednesday.

Disha has featured in the film's dance number "Slow Motion" with Salman and she said she always wanted to do a massy track like that. "You have to dance according to him (Salman). That's how it is. You've to see what he's doing and go according to what he is doing because he has this charm. He makes everything his own. That's what you call 'Salman Khan style'," she added. Disha, who made her debut in the MS Dhoni biopic, considers herself lucky to bag a big film like "Bharat" so early in her career. She has a small role in the film, but the actor said she had no apprehensions to take it up.
Asked if she was sceptical to do the film, Disha dismissed the idea, saying "When Ali sir called me, he told me it's a special appearance. I am more than happy to be a part of such a great cast... I don't think about competition. It's always a great learning to be with these people."
She will be seen in Salman Khan's Bharat as a trapeze artist. It is set across several decades and will show Salman’s character in various avatars which will showcase his journey from 18 to 60 years. It is the official remake of a Korean film titled, Ode To My Father. The film also stars Sunil Grover and Nora Fatehi in pivotal roles and will hit the screens on June 5, 2019.
Apart from that, Disha will also be seen alongside Kartik Aaryan in Anees Bazmee's untitled romantic comedy. It will be produced by Anees along with Bhushan Kumar and will go on floors in the middle of this year. It will be shot in Mumbai and abroad. Also, next in the pipeline for Disha is Malang with Aditya Roy Kapur.
