Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is gearing up for his upcoming release Bharat. The film also featuring Katrina Kaif is set to hit the screens during Eid.
In a recent event, Salman Khan has claimed that Katrina Kaif deserves a National Film Award for the film. He said, “She thinks I am kidding but I don’t think anyone else thinks that. I think there is 1000% chance of her winning the National Film Award.”
Katrina Kaif was not the first choice for the role as originally Priyanka signed the film but quit it at the last minute for her wedding with singer Nick Jonas. In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Salman again thanked Priyanka as Katrina talked about her character in the film. He said that though she couldn’t be in the film, she could still help with the promotions as she had loved the script of Bharat.
He said, “Over Bharat, she chose USA in the ‘nick’ of time. She has worked all her life so hard and when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped the film and got married. Hats off! Usually people leave the husbands for this.”
