Performers from all over the world are flying down for the circus tricks which will be a mix of trapeze hoops and rope stunts." Salman will be seen playing a stunt motorcyclist and Disha will essay the role of a trapeze artiste, added Zafar.

Salman Khan was formerly busy due to his Da-bangg Reloaded tour that ended recently.

Speaking further about the film Ali Abbas Zafar said,"We will be ending the Mumbai schedule with a Holi song featuring Salman and Priyanka. The director also revealed that Priyanka will be sporting different looks in the film as the narrative travels from the 1960s to the present day.

Produced by Atul Agnihotri's Reel Life Production Pvt. Ltd and Bhushan Kumar's T-Series, the film will be releasing in Eid 2019.
