"Katrina Kaif had to opt out of Remo D'Souza's upcoming dance film owing to her hectic schedule for Bharat. Katrina has always been a thorough professional .She decided to step out of the film as her dates were clashing with Bharat, which she is currently shooting for," Katrina Kaif's spokesperson released an official statement to the media.

Though the title of the film is not yet disclosed by the makers, they had released a sneak-peek video where three characters were seen setting off for a big dance battle. The movie is being touted as the biggest dance film ever that is being made in 3D.

"I am excited to be joining Remo's vision. Varun's passion is wonderful; he works tirelessly to create magic on screen. And, Bhushan Kumar, with his understanding of market dynamics as a producer, will ensure this turns out to be the most talked-about film of 2019. I can't wait to start this journey," Katrina had said.

The movie is slated to release on November 8, 2019. Take a look at the curtain raiser clip here.
