Priyanka Chopra has left all her fans in awe with her outclass performance in Hollywood and the much talked about global TV show, Quantico. The svelte actor was MIA from Bollywood since the past two years but she is all set to make a comeback with a bang.

That’s right! Priyanka Chopra is all set to star in Salman Khan’s period drama titled Bharat, which is going to be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.

Zafar, who himself seems to be quite excited about working with the seasoned star, says that Chopra is an excellent choice for the female lead. “Priyanka is the biggest Indian artist globally today and a perfect fit for the film as she brings to the table her incredible talent and international appeal.”

Shedding more light on Quantico actor’s role in Bharat, Zafar reveals that she adds life to the movie. “Her character is the soul of the film. She stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Salman in his journey and is the catalyst who triggers what will be a turning point in the plot.”

Chopra too is unable to contain her excitement and states that she’s absolutely delighted about working with Salman Khan. “Bharat it is! I’m looking forward to shooting this film and working with Salman and Ali again after a considerable time. I’ve learnt a lot from them in our previous collaborations and am excited to see what this one has to offer. I’m also looking forward to working with Alvira and Atul and the entire team of Bharat. To all my well-wishers who’ve been so patient and supportive, thank you for your constant support and I’ll see you all at the movies!”

Priyanka was last seen spreading her magic in in Prakaash Jha’s directorial Jai Gangaajal wherein she essayed the role of an IPS officer.

Bharat is a mature, subtle love story. The movie shows India’s rich culture, spans over seven decades and travels across the world
