It is interesting to note that Ali’s earlier movie with Salman, Sultan, was again rooted in the soil and showed the superstar as a Haryanavi wrestler of international repute. The movie was appreciated by masses for Salman’s wrestler act and the dramatic physical transformation he went through for the role. We can expect the same earthiness and focus from him this time with Bharat.
Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra is wrapping up Quantico’s third season in Ireland and a other few international commitments. She sure should be back home with a bang! Salman is almost done shooting with Race 3 and has television commitments with reality shows Dus Ka Dum and Bigg Boss season 12.
