As reported by a daily, a source revealed: "Priyanka has also worked with Ali in Gunday (2014) and shares a good rapport with him. This film will see the three of them collaborate for the first time."
The Salman-Priyanka Jodi was last seen together on the big screen in 2004 hit film "Mujhse Shaadi Karogi" (2004), "Salaam-e-Ishq: A Tribute to Love" (2007) and "God Tussi Great Ho" (2008).
Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, "Bharat" will have a storyline that spans over 70 years of India. Ali, in an interview earlier said, "Since the story spans over a period of 70 years, there will be many historical references. It is essentially about a man who lives through several significant moments from India’s past to present. We are currently working on the film’s pre-production and details will be announced once we are in a position to talk about them."
"Bharat" is the Indian adaptation of the Korean movie, "Ode to My Father" and is slated for an Eid 2019 release.
