Salman Khan's film 'Bharat' will release on June 5 this year. 

Salman Khan’s fans will be happy to know that Twitter has now launched an official emoji for his upcoming film’s character, Bharat. 

In a statement, the micro-blogging site unveiled the emoji with Reel Life Productions. Rahul Pushkarna, Head of Content Partnerships, Twitter Asia Pacific said, "Fans enjoy being part of the conversation around their favourite films and stars on Twitter, and are always looking for new ways to engage with them. We wanted to elevate the conversation and delight fans of 'Bharat' and Salman worldwide."

Salman also tweeted from his account as he shared the emoji and wrote: “Here is the official Bharat emoji! Tweet using  #Bharat #BharatThisEid #IAmBharat #BharatWithFamily To see it! Thank you @TwitterIndia!”

The film is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and also features Katrina Kaif and Disha Patani. It is scheduled to release on June 5.

Meanwhile, at the recent promotions for the film, Salman has been talking about Priyanka Chopra's exit from the film that led to Katrina Kaif taking up the role. He said, "Look, she did the right thing. She did what she wanted, and Katrina got what she deserved. She (Priyanka) informed us five days before the schedule was supposed to start... she must have thought that in this way I would get upset with her and will never work with her." 

"She spoke to me saying, `Nick (American actor-singer Nick Jonas) has proposed to me and I want to get married, so there will be some date issues`. I said, `Sure, get married, we can adjust those two, three days. Then she said that she does not want to do the film."
