While many pine to be a Salman Khan actress while working in the Hindi film industry, only a few get the golden opportunity to be cast alongside him in a film. Disha Patani, who has been part of projects like Jackie Chan's Kung Fu Yoga and Tiger Shroff's Baaghi 2, will be seen portraying the character of Radha, a stunt artist, and Bharat's (played by Salman Khan) co-performer during the latter's circus trope years. And Disha has been grabbing eyeballs for her part as an entertainer in Bharat ever since the song Slow Motion came out.
While contemplating on the opportunity to work in Bharat, alongside Salman, Disha pointed out that even though she grabbed the opportunity with two hands, she is unsure if such a prospect will ever turn up in the future. In an interview with ETimes, the actress was quoted saying by timesofindia.com, "I have a management and I have to discuss the roles with them. But, the fact that I loved this role so much that I had to do it. Plus I don’t know if I ever get an opportunity of working with Salman sir again, so, I knew that I needed to do this."
Pointed out if she would work with Salman if the time and chances are opportune she said, "I will work, for sure. But still, I feel you shouldn't miss the right opportunity in life."
In Bharat, which is releasing on June 5, Disha will be seen with Salman, as the film navigates the latter's younger days. Cast opposite a younger and leaner looking 53-year-old actor, Disha seems to be ready to sizzle the screen with their chemistry and daredevilry in the Great Russian Circus.
Bharat is helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, who has also directed Salman in Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. Apart from Disha and Salman, the film has the likes of Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Tabu and Aasif Sheikh in pivotal roles. Bharat is an adaption of the 2014 South Korean drama Ode to My Father, directed by Yoon Je-kyoon.
