After Priyanka Chopra’s exit, Salman Khan had chosen Katrina Kaif to replace her in the film Bharat!
The actress Priyanka Chopra’s sudden exit from Bharat had left everyone in shock. It was reported that Salman Khan too was quite upset with her for informing them about her plan at the last minute. But it was very soon that the actor announced Katrina Kaif as the new leading lady of his film.
Now we hear that Jacqueline Fernandez too had tried getting that role. A source told Bollywood Hungama, “The minute Jacqueline heard about Priyanka Chopra’s ouster from Bharat, she got into action. Jacqueline sent Salman and the director Ali Abbas Zafar feelers through mutual friends. When that didn’t work, she directly approached Salman with her very generous offer to step into the void.”

Well, what happened next? Nothing, says the source adding, “I think Salman Khan ignored Jacqueline’s request. It was too soon after the unexpected debacle of Race 3. I think he needed a break from that pairing. And besides, Salman’s first choice for Bharat was Katrina Kaif. It was only on Priyanka’s insistence that he changed his plans. Now when Priyanka was out, why would he go to anyone else?”
Well, Katrina is clearly Salman’s favourite and everyone knows that!
Talking about the work front of the stars, Jacqueline Fernandez is a part of Sushant Singh Rajput starrer action drama Drive. The film also has Vikramjeet Virk and Sapna Pabbi. On the other hand, Salman Khan is currently in Malta shooting for Bharat. Katrina Kaif too has left from India to join him for the shoot.
