Excitement of the fans knows no limits whenever there is a Salman Khan movie around the corner. And needless to say, Eid looks promising this time too with the much anticipated Bharat which is being helmed by Ali Abbas Zaffar. Yes, Priyanka Chopra's walkout from the film in the 'Nick of the time' (now we all know why) dropped everyone's jaws but Katrina Kaif being roped for her part only helped in rousing the buzz because of her on-screen chemistry with Salman. However, rumours are also rife that Disha Patani who is also a part of the film, is playing a pivotal part, pitching the film as a two heroine project.

But director Ali Abbad has another perspective when quizzed about the same. In an interview with Times of India, he said, "The film tracks the journey of a man and a nation, simultaneously. The story spans over 65 years, and every role in the film is important. The idea is to make a movie with many special characters. I narrated the entire story to Disha before I signed her on. She said that she will do the film irrespective of her part in it, because it is a beautiful story. She also added that the film is more important than anybody’s role.”
He also went on to explain that times are changing and how screen-space no longer solely determines if an actor should sign the dotted line. "Even big actors get excited about great content in the mainstream space. So, I can’t take something that’s substandard to any of the top stars. Every Friday becomes a career-defining moment. When the expectations are higher, the challenge becomes that much bigger, he added. if you haven't heard already, Bharat which will have Salman playing 5 different characters and looks, also stars Sunil Grover, Tabu among others.
