Katrina, who has given several hits with Salman at the box office, will play the female lead and Khan's love interest in the film, which is being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
It is to be noted that the trio - Salman, Katrina and Zafar are reuniting for the period drama after 'Tiger Zinda Hai'. Zafar had also directed Katrina in 'Mere Brother Ki Dulhan', and is looking forward to working with his 'three collaboration buddy'.
Katrina bagged the role which was originally offered to Priyanka Chopra. However, the 'Quantico' actress opted out of the project at the last minute. Zafar, who was excited to collaborate with Priyanka for the project, took to Twitter to confirm the news and hinted at her wedding with Nick Jonas as the reason behind her 'sudden' decision to quit the film.
'Bharat' went on floors earlier this month and also stars Disha Patani, Tabu, Sunil Grover and Nora Fatehi.
