Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is currently making headlines these days as she walked out from Salman Khan’s Bharat and it is being said that the reason behind her exit from the film is her engagement with Nick Jonas.
Earlier, it was being said that the actor was miffed with Priyanka and had vowed never to work with her. However, his father Salim Khan had refuted the rumours, and said that Salman wasn’t upset at all and that these things happen in the industry all the time.
Yesterday, while speaking at the trailer launch of Loveratri, Salman has opened up on this matter.
He said, “I am really happy for her. Had we known earlier that she has signed a big film in Hollywood, we would have never stopped her. My shooting had begun. We got to know about her decision of leaving the film at the end moment – just 10 days before her schedule. Priyanka had come home and I told her, ‘It’s okay if you don’t want to do it’. At that time, we were given some other reason. Whatever may be the reason – be it marriage or picture or her not being willing to work in India or with me, it’s her reason and we are really supportive about her doing good work. If she does not want to work with Salman Khan, it’s okay; she’s working with a big hero in Hollywood.”
Salman also thanked Katrina for saying yes to Bharat despite working in films like Thugs of Hindostan and Zero.
Bharat will be an onscreen adaptation of 2014 South Korean movie Ode To My Father. This will mark the director and Salman Khan’s third collaboration and Priyanka’s fourth film with the 52-year-old superstar.
Bharat will be shot across locations in Abu Dhabi, Spain, Punjab and Delhi and releases on Eid next year.
