In a recent chat show, Katrina revealed why she accepted the movie, Bharat. She said, "When I read the script, something connected to me very strongly. I didn't expect it. In my mind, I had envisioned another kind of role which was written for the heroine in Bharat. And I was like, hmm..whatever. But when I read it, I was very surprised. I saw this opportunity of some desire for me to try and do something with this character. I saw and I knew I wanted to do it."

With Katrina entering the movie Bharat everyone thought Salman Khan is behind her, he helped him to bag this movie but Katrina cleared the air in the chat show. She said, "Salman didn't call me at all. He didn't say a word. And this is the truth. Even when I signed the film, he did not call me. When I went for the first day on sets, he just looked at me and said, 'Katrina'. I'm like... okay, fine! He is unpredictable which is why every moment with him is fascinating. There is never a dull moment with Salman,"

Bharat is set to release on Eid this year, it will a feast to the Salman and Katrina fans. It is an official remake of a Korean film An Ode To My Father, Bharat depicts the history of India through the life of an ordinary man. The film also stars Disha Patani and Tabu.
