Actress Disha Patani will be seen in the upcoming Salman Khan-starrer Bharat that is slated for an Eid release in 2019.
The film’s director Ali Abbas Zafar made the announcement on Thursday on Twitter. He shared a photograph of Patani, welcoming her on board.
“Welcome Dish Patani to the journey of Bharat. Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra,” Zafar captioned the image.
This will be Zafar’s third outing with Khan, after blockbusters such as Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai.
Chopra will be teaming up with Khan on the big screen after a gap of 11 years, after their last appearance in God Tussi Great Ho in 2008.
Bharat is an official adaptation of 2014 South Korean film Ode to My Father. It is produced by Atul Agnihotri’s Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series.
