We all know that Priyanka Chopra was the first choice for Salman Khan starrer Bharat, but the actress opted out of the film just a few days before the shoot was about to begin. Katrina Kaif replaced PeeCee in the movie and Salman and director Ali Abbas Zafar have openly spoken up about the Desi Girl’s exit from the film.
Recently, while talking to a tabloid, Salman once again spoke about PeeCee’s exit. When asked if after her exit they have had a conversation, to which Salman said, “No, even after the release of the trailer, Priyanka didn’t call me. Now, if she had some genuine problem then it’s alright. I believe, whatever happens, happens for the good.”
“She came to meet me one day and said she is going to get married and hence won’t be able to work in the film. I had told Priyanka that we will adjust the dates for her. She said that she isn’t sure how much time she needs for the preparation of her wedding,” the actor added.
However, this has not affected PeeCee and Salman’s friendship and he is ready to work with her in the future. Salman said, “I would definitely work with her in the future. If she gets me a meaty role, why wouldn’t I work with her? I just need to love the story.”
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat is slated to release on 5th June 2019.
