Priyanka Chopra’s abrupt exit from Ali Abbas Zafar’s upcoming film Bharat has raised many questions, but the lead actor of the film Salman Khan has a few questions on his own. Salman finally broke his silence.
After all the hoopla and friendly-banter on Twitter between Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan while welcoming her on-board his next film Bharat, Salman Khan was as taken aback as fans when Priyanka Chopra decided to walk out of the project. A few weeks back, Ali Abbas Zafar, the director of Bharat who also directed Salman Khan in Tiger Zinda hai (2017), had put out a cryptic message hinting that Priyanka is leaving Bharat (no pun intended) because of her marriage plans with boyfriend Nick Jonas.
But that could very well not be the case at all, news dropped after her exit that she has signed on to star opposite Chris Pratt, who plays MCU superhero Starlord in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, in a Hollywood flick titled Cowboy Ninja Viking. Meanwhile, rumours were abuzz that Salman Khan is upset with Priyanka over her abrupt exit from the project.
While the director has spoken about his disappointment over her unprofessional behaviour while also recast her in the film with Bollywood diva Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan had been silent throughout the drama until yesterday. At the trailer launch of his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma’s upcoming film Loveratri, Salman finally opened up about the entire fiasco.
Salman also revealed that when Priyanka wanted to exit the project (Bharat) she gave a different reason (probably her marriage to Nick Jonas) and it’s only later that Salman found out (speculation) that she has singed up for a Hollywood film with Chris Pratt.
Clearly Salman was quite hurt by the entire incident because he mentions the fact that Priyanka might not want to work with him twice or his quote could also be insinuated as that fact that Priyanka chosing to work with Pratt over Salman may have dented the actor’s ego to an extent.
