Priyanka Chopra will be getting ₹12 crore for her role in the movie, which is equal to Deepika Padukone's in Padmaavat. According to reports, her team had previously asked for ₹14 crore according to her market rates, but then it was settled for ₹12 crore. Deepika has been entitled to the highest paid actress in Bollywood. Now she might have to face some competition since Desi Girl has returned back home.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar believes that Priyanka’s role is the ‘catalyst at the most important turning point’ in the movie. In a statement, he said, "Bharat is a mature, subtle love story and 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"

Ali also said that introducing Priyanka in the movie will be a boost to the movie at a global level. Because of her international recognition and brilliant acting skills, the movie will be able to reach a larger audience. He also told about the actress's excitement on being part of the film.
Priyanka was quite taken by the script of Bharat. What also added to her excitement was that it would give her the chance to team up with Salman after a decade. But she's not signed on the dotted line yet
This is not the first time we will be seeing the actress with Salman Khan. They had previously starred together in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Salaam-E-Ishq and God Tussi Great Ho.
“I'm looking forward to begin 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," Priyanka said in a statement.
The movie is going to be released on Eid next year. In an Instagram post, Ali posted a picture of Salman Khan shooting for the movie in London with captions, "Journey of a man and nation together."
