Mumbai: Salman Khan’s Bharat has been in news for various reasons in the recent past after Priyanka Chopra left the project all of a sudden. The actress was replaced by Katrina Kaif and if sources are to be believed, Disha Patani too was considered for a role for a short period of time.
“Disha started shooting for her role in Bharat sometime ago. She shot for a song sequence with Salman. However, recently when Priyanka left the film, the makers were a bit worried about the film’s future. So at one point of time they even thought of Disha as the lead. In fact, Salman had called her for a look test and within an hour the actress reached on the location too. But eventually the role went to Katrina Kaif. Salman now feels grateful to Disha for coming immediately and has decided to pay her back. He has asked the director to see that she gets enough scenes in the film,” says a source.
Disha remained unavailable for the comment. Disha is playing the role of trapeze artist in the film and shared her on set pictures and revealed that her character will be called Radha in the film.
Incidentally, Disha was not the first choice to play this role. Earlier, Kiara Advani had two meetings with the makers and later Mouni Roy too met them for the same role. However, since things did not work out with either of the actresses, Disha was finalised. Apart from Disha, Tabu is also playing an important role.
