Khan wrapped up work on Race 3 as expected, and then proceeded to surprise everyone by beginning shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat, which is slated to be released on Eid in 2019. Now that explains Priyanka Chopra's dinner dates with Salman Khan's sister Arpita in Mumbai!

Director Ali Abbas Zafar says, "Bharat is Priyanka's homecoming to Bollywood after having proven her range as a performer in Hollywood films and a blockbuster global TV show". Bharat will tell the story of a man with his journey of 70 years.

"Priyanka is the biggest Indian artist globally today and a flawless fit for the film as she brings to the table her incredible talent and worldwide appeal", he added. This will be the third time Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar will be working together. I've learnt a lot from them during our previous collaborations and I 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.

Priyanka has thanked "all well-wishers who have been so patient and supportive" for the constant support.

The makers of BHARAT are in full swing and it seems that the film might go on floors very soon.

"That film is just the starting point for ours".

Ali, who has directed Priyanka in Gunday before, adds, "We have found the soul of Bharat in Priyanka Chopra".

Not only Priyanka but we will also see Katrina in the film. It is a attractive story and we are very excited to start the journey with the entire team. For those who don't know Bharat is a remake of a South Korean film - An Ode to my Father - "That film came to me from Salman himself".

While they begin with the shoot, in the interim Ali, the TIGER ZINDA HAI director, shared Salman Khan's throwback video in which he is training for blackflip for the role he played in SULTAN.
