Talking about Katrina assuming the part in Bharat, director Ali Abbas Zafar said to HT before, “Katrina is a very big superstar and I’ve worked closely with her in two films. I shared the [Bharat] script with her and she liked the role.”
He likewise included, “The way Salman sir’s and my vision is, we talk about everything. But he leaves the decision to me. Katrina was solely my decision, only for the reason that I’ve worked with her in two films, and her work was very nice.”
Katrina Kaif will begin to shoot for the film from August.
