Popular TV actor Asif Sheikh, who is known for his role as Vibhuti Narayna in Bhabhiji Ghar Pe Hain, has been roped in for a pivotal role in Salman Khan’s Bharat.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Sheikh has been roped in to essay the husband of Salman’s sister in the film and like his popular character from the sitcom BGPH, Sheikh is all set to impress everyone with his one liners.

“I have only three friends, and Atul (Agnihotri, Bharat producer) is one of them, so I was more than happy to be a part of this film. Also, I really like Ali Abbas Zafar as a director and I can’t wait to collaborate with Salman again. I am playing his sister’s husband in the film who always delivers these one-liners and there is a big time span that we cover together. I have known Salman since his ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ days. He is a very special person,” Asif was quoted as saying.

Sheikh has become one of the most popular actors of TV in recent years and owing to his immense popularity among fans, he has joined the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Sunil Grover and Disha Patani in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat.

This will not be first time that when Sheikh and Salman will be working together on the screen as in the past they have worked in numerous films like Karan Arjun, Bandhan, Auzaar and Shaadi Karke Phas Gya.

The makers of the film are leaving no stone unturned to make sure that their ambitious project is a must watch by bringing in a range of actors from different backgrounds.

Be it Salman, the biggest star in India, or Priyanka, who is set to make her comeback in Bollywood or the casting of comedians Grover and Sheikh, Bharat is becoming one of the most talked about films.

The film is an official remake of Korean film Ode to My Father and will release worldwide on Eid 2019.
