ou have to take Salman Khan with a bucket of salt’: Katrina Kaif defends ‘Bharat’ co-star’s digs on Priyanka Chopra – Katrina Kaif finally opened up about her Bharat co-star Salman Khan taking constant digs at Priyanka Chopra after the latter exited the film
It is just three days to Bharat release and Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif have still been going all out to promote the film. Salman Khan is often in news for taking a dig at Priyanka Chopra’s exit from the film. The actor always ends up saying ‘Thank you Priyanka’.
In a recent interview to Bollywood Hungama, Salman Khan even went on to say, “Over Bharat, she chose USA in the ‘nick’ of time. She has worked all her life so hard and when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped the film and got married. Hats off! Usually people leave the husbands for this.”
It came to a point where Katrina Kaif had to react ‘Salman’ as the actor mentioned Priyanka Chopra’s name. But now Katrina has come out in defence of her Bharat co-star. In an interview with Rajeeev Masand, the actress went on to clear, “You have to take everything that Salman says with a big bucket of salt. I think we all know that by now. He just says it for effect, he does not mean it. Sometimes, in interviews I am biting my tongue like 5 times in a day, but it’s all in good fun. I don’t take it seriously.”
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat brings the trio of Ali, Salman and Katrina Kaif after Tiger Zinda Hai from 2017. Apart from them, the movie also stars Disha Patani, Tabu, Sunil Grover, Nora Fatehi, Jackie Shroff, Sonali Kulkarni, Shashank Arora and others in pivotal roles. Bharat will also see a cameo by young star Varun Dhawan.
