Salman Khan expressed his thoughts about Priyanka Chopra quitting ‘Bharat’ recently at the trailer launch of Loveratri in New Delhi.
The director of the film, Ali Abbas Zafar recently tweeted about Priyanka’s exit from the film and hinted that Priyanka Chopra’s wedding with Nick Jonas was the reason behind it.
Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of @Bharat_TheFilm & and the reason is very very special , she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her ... Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life ???— ali abbas zafar (@aliabbaszafar) July 27, 2018
"She gave us a different reason, you know what. That could also be a reason, but whatever the reason - be it marriage or the film or because she doesn’t want to work in India or she doesn’t want to work with me and only wants to do Hollywood films and TV shows, whatever the reason is, it is her own." - Salman Khan
Although Salman was very positive with his response to Priyanka’s exit, you could sense the sarcasm in his words when he said:
" Even if she does not want to work with Salman Khan, she is at least working with some big star over there." - Salman Khan
The announcement of Priyanka Chopra bagging a role opposite Salman Khan in Bharat was made with a lot of pomp in April this year and it was set to be her first big Bollywood project after a 2-year-break. While welcoming the actor on board his film Bharat, Zafar had said that Priyanka would bring ‘outstanding acting as well as incredible international appeal’ to make the scale of the film bigger and even more global. However, it now looks like Priyanka’s priorities have changed in the last few months.
Soon after her departure from the project, the Bharat team announced Katrina Kaif as Priyanka’s replacement, who is already shooting with two other Khans in multi-starrer projects -Thugs of Hindustan with Aamir and Zero with SRK.
The movie has already wrapped up its first schedule in Mumbai and is heading to Malta for its next filming schedule.
