Filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar and his next film Bharat has been the center of attention in social media ever since its lead actress Priyanka Chopra refused it. Recently, the filmmaker reassured fans that Katrina Kaif has replaced the Quantico actress. This started a social media debate and many people started creating theories. Moreover, there was no word from Katrina Kaif about the uproar until now.
While the main reason for Priyanka’s exit from Bharat was her recent engagement to the American sensation Nick Jonas, there are also other rumors which claim that PeeCee didn’t like her role. Indeed, there’s no evidence for this theory. In fact, the new lead is quite happy with her role and so is the hero!
Soon after the news of the new lead, Salman Khan confirmed that Katrina Kaif had replaced Priyanka Chopra in the film:

We have worked with each other earlier in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Tiger Zinda Hai and both films were extremely successful. More importantly, I had a great experience working on those two films.” she confirmed.
She also confirmed that she is very happy with the script. “When he contacted me, he said, ‘I’m going send you a script and just react and tell me what you think’. I read the script and thought it was absolutely wonderful and I was extremely excited about the character and very happy to be part of the film,” Katrina said.
She continued, “The roles which I have chosen for myself are purely based on the script and what my character is in that film. So for me, it is extremely exciting to be working with the team again.”
