Friday morning came as the biggest shocker for all of Priyanka Chopra walking out of Salman Khan’s ‘Bharat’. As everyone started speculating the reason behind this, director Ali Abbas Zafar himself split the beans with his tweet, hinting that there is marriage in the anvil for Priyanka Chopra and her boyfriend, American singer-actor Nick Jonas. However, looks like it didn’t go well with Bhaijaan.
As per a report in Bollywood Hungama, an insider close to Salman Khan camp told the publication that Bhai is mighty pissed with PeeCee for walking out on the film, just when she was about to start shooting. The source further added that marriage is just an alibi to save face; the reason is something else. The publication quotes this insider saying, “The director, who is a close friend of Priyanka, doesn’t want any ugly controversy about Priyanka’s exit. So he’s making it sound like an amicable parting, which it is not. Salman is hardly going to be pacified by the marriage alibi. Considering, it was she who wanted to be part of the project. And, now she’s had second thoughts because of marriage? Nonsense! If she was getting married, she’d have planned it for after shooting for Bharat. This is not small film and opting out of it more or less seals her plans for a Bollywood comeback.”
To note, PeeCee shares a great bond with Salman’s younger sister Arpita Khan Sharma, we doubt if even that is going to survive after her decision. Salman and Priyanka’s friendship soured way back when the actor wanted Katrina to replace Priyanka in one of their movies, but the latter refused to budge. Priyanka even said no to Salman for a film he was producing. The film was Sohail Khan’s ‘Main Aur Mrs Khanna’ and Kareena Kapoor Khan was later taken in as the lead actress.
