Bollywood actress Disha Patani who is basking the glory of his recently released film ‘Baaghi 2’ has bagged one of the biggest projects of her career.
If reports are to be believed, the actress has signed Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat where she will be working with Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra.
According to reports, Disha will essay the role of a trapeze artist in a circus set in the 1960s. The circus segment in the film is director Zafar’s ode to Bollywood showman Raj Kapoor’s magnum opus Mera Naam Joker.
“The pairing of Salman and Disha in a circus set-up in the ’60s is unusual and exciting. She is a promising star and for this character, we needed a girl who looked vulnerable and beautiful yet had the physicality of an athlete. Disha fit the bill perfectly,” says Zafar.
Disha confirmed the news of being a part of the movie. She took to Twitter and wrote, “Looking forward to step into the shoes of a #TrapezeArtiste .. Thank you for this challenge @BeingSalmanKhan @aliabbaszafar @atulreellife @priyankachopra #Bharat it is!!”

Bharat will be shot across locations in Abu Dhabi, Spain, Punjab and Delhi and releases on Eid next year.
