Over the weekend, Salman Khan shot for 10 Ka Dum at Film City. Considering that B-Town was buzzing about Priyanka Chopra's sudden exit from his film, Bharat, there were no tell-tale signs. As usual, he arrived on the set when everything was ready, shot and left. Onlookers say he didn't look bothered.

Salman Khan, however, on Monday welcomed Katrina Kaif to the cast of Bharat in style, by calling her "sundar" (beautiful) and "susheel" (virtuous). "Ek sundar aur susheel ladki jiska naam hai Katrina Kaif... Swagat hai aapka 'Bharat' ki zindagi mein (A beautiful and virtuous girl named Katrina... We welcome you the world of 'Bharat')," Salman tweeted on Monday.

Katrina, who has given several hits with Salman at the box office, will play his love interest in Bharat, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. The three are reuniting for the period drama after Tiger Zinda Hai. Zafar had also directed Katrina in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, and is looking forward to working with his "three collaboration buddy".

Katrina has stepped into a role which was originally being played by Priyanka Chopra, who according to Zafar, opted out of the project "in the Nick of time". His announcement alluded to US media speculations about Priyanka's engagement to American singer-songwriter Nick Jonas.
