New Delhi: Bollywood's 'Desi Girl' Priyanka Chopra, Superstar Salman Khan and the gorgeous Disha Patani will make a splash on the silver screen with 'Bharat'. The movie also stars actress Tabu, comedian-actor Sunil Grover and Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain fame Aasif Sheikh in important roles. There has been no announcement regarding the characters that these popular celebs will be playing but rumour is that Disha will most probably play Salman's sister.

The film will be set in the backdrop of India in 1947 and will take us through the events during the country’s partition. Not just that, the film will showcase significant events over a period of 70 years since partition.
The title of the film is self-explanatory. We can expect Salman to showcase his patriotic side by essaying a character that has witnessed partition. Bharat will be an official adaptation of the 2014 South Korean film Ode to My Father.
Most of Salman Khan's films in the recent past have hit the theatres on the occasion of Eid. Bharat is no exception. It will release on the festival in 2019.
