Disha Patani, who was excited to work with Priyanka Chopra in ‘Bharat’ said she felt a little bad when the ‘Quantico’ actress dropped the project. Disha interacted with media at the ‘Bombay Times Fashion Week’ Day 3 on Sunday.
Disha Patani will be seen in Salman Khan’s ‘Bharat’. It was also supposed to star Priyanka Chopra. When asked Disha about Priyanka’s abrupt exit from the film, she said, “I am a big fan of Priyanka. I felt a little bad but then, it’s okay. It’s her decision and of course, I respect and love her. But maybe in future, I’ll get a chance to work with her.”
The actress walked down the ramp wearing a lemon pink lehenga for Kalki fashion. The signature outfit was layered with embroideries in vintage English colors embellished with gold metal yarns, and resham.
When asked her opinion about the huge uproar around the Me Too Movement, she said “I feel very proud right now that women are speaking up for themselves and have a voice now. I feel like few years back, people wouldn’t have reacted the same way they have now, thanks to social media. I am very happy that change is coming and every person should be scared before they speak and touch a girl in the wrong manner.”
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, “Bharat” is an official adaptation of a 2014 South Korean film “Ode To My Father”.
Produced by Atul Agnihotri’s Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series “Bharat” is slated for an Eid release in 2019.
