This might come as a shocker for fans who were all excited to see Priyanka Chopra in Salman Khan’s keenly awaited movie ‘Bharat’, but it has been officially confirmed that the actress is no longer a part of the high-profile film. Yes, PC has opted out of the movie at the eleventh hour. The makers were all set to kick-start the shoot this week only. The audience was looking forward to the movie for a variety of reasons, one of them being the fact that ‘Bharat’ was about to reunite Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra after a massive gap of 10 years. They were last seen together in the 2008 movie ‘God Tussi Great Ho’.
The news has been confirmed by none other than Ali Abbas Zafar, who calls the shots for the flick. “Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of @Bharat_TheFilm & the reason is very very special, she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her … Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life,” he wrote.
While a leading English newspaper reports that the actress has left the film because she has bagged a much bigger movie. However, no one from Priyanka’s team has confirmed the development. Some section of media also reports that Priyanka Chopra has walked out of ‘Bharat’ because she is getting married to her rumoured boyfriend Nick Jonas. Reportedly, the couple is tying the knot in the month of September.
So, as of now, the only confirmed film that Chopra is doing is ‘The Sky is Pink’ with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. The movie is being helmed by Shonali Bose and is based on a real-life incident. More details are awaited.
