In a statement to DNA, a source informed, “Disha’s role in the Partition-based drama is smaller compared to that of Priyanka Chopra’s. Salman’s character, who ages from the 20s to the 70s, comes across Disha’s character when he’s young. But they don’t end up together. The film’s makers were looking for a fresh face and someone with great flexibility (the role is of a trapeze artist). Hence, Disha fit the bill perfectly.” Also Read - Entertainment News Today, April 8: Salman Khan's Money Transfer to 25,000 Wage Workers Begins, Actor to Repeat Donations Next Month
