Salman Khan's much awaited film 'Bharat' is slated to release in theatres on June 5. The film has lately been in a lot of news for Priyanka's exit from the film. The 'Quantico' actress was supposed to share screen space with the superstar in the film. However at the last minute, she backed out of the project to marry her singer-beau Nick Jonas. Soon, Katrina Kaif stepped into her shoes to play the leading lady.
Recently in an interview, Katrina revealed that she was unaware about who was roped in to play Kumud before her.
