Yet another dig at Priyanka Chopra for dropping out Bharat, Salman is not leaving a single stone unturned to counterblast her move out from the film. Priyanka Chopra was reportedly casted in a lead opposite Salman in Bharat. She withdrew from the project due to her marriage plans with Nick Jonas in America. In an interview with an entertainment website, Salman thanked Priyanka for leaving the film so that Katrina was brought in as a replacement.
Well Salman is thanking Priyanka these days a lot, when asked about the same by the interviewer Salman said “She’s not there in the film, but she can help with the promotions.” Not so relevantly answered but indication of another dig at Priyanka.
The Actor added “And she, over Bharat, did choose USA in the ‘nick’ of time. She has worked so hard all her life, okay? And when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped that film and got married. You know hats off! Usually, people leave their husbands for a film like this.”
Talking about a National Award for Katrina’s acting in the film he said “You know inko aisa lagta hai ki main mazaak kar raha hoon. I don’t think anyone else thinks that. Jinhone sirf promo bhi dekha hai... I think 1000 per cent inko National Award mil sakta hai. Kyunki isse badi aur inspiring film, aur humari mitti se judi hui film, I don’t think abhi kuch time tak aayegi.”
It was a shock for fans that Priyanka Chopra dropped out of the film and on the same the Director Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted “The reason is very very special, she told us in the nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her.”
Well it confuses the fans that, is Salman Khan upset about Priyanka Chopra moving out and getting married to Nick or he is happy for Katrina moving in the movie.
