Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is all set to entertain the audiences with his first release of this year Bharat. It is to be noted that Priyanka Chopra walked out of Bharat just a few days before the film went on floors. Later, Katrina Kaif came on board as the lead opposite Salman. Bharat's song Zinda was launched at the film’s first promotional event on Friday and it was attended by its lead actors including Salman and Katrina Kaif. Well, during the launch of the song, Salman was in a jovial mood and was making funny comments and casually pulling his co-star’s leg.
Salman once again took a jibe at Priyanka Chopra. During the media interaction, when Katrina was quizzed about her experience and preparation for her role, the actress said, “As an actor, I think it is definitely my most incredible experience working with Ali.. we have done three films together, but I can honestly say that this film has been the best experience so far and I think we have got super super excited for everyone to see the film.”
However, Salman immediately interrupted Katrina and said, “Thank You Priyanka.” The comment was was enough for everyone to have a hearty laugh at the event.
Salman further said, "Katrina will get a National Award for the film. Without any jokes, she is so good in the film and she has worked very hard."Though Salman keeps taking a jibe at Priyanka, the two remain great friends. Salman had even attended the reception party of Priyanka and Nick Jonas’ wedding.
Previously, Ali Abbas Zafar too had said that he doesn’t hold any grudges against Priyanka because she left the film for personal reasons (obviously it was her marriage with Nick).
Coming back to Bharat, the film is all set to hit the silver screens on June 5. Apart from Salman and Katrina, Sunil Grover and Disha Patani will be seen playing pivotal roles in the film.
