It’s hard to deal with the fact that Priyanka Chopra is not going to be sharing space with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan in Bharat. The Quantico star’s decision to quit the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial did sadden us, but nonetheless, we completely understand the reason PeeCee decided to quit Bharat is too precious to her and Nick Jonas is her priority currently. After the reports caught fire, filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar took to Twitter and broke the news saying the reason for her opting out in the ‘Nick of time’ is ‘very special’.
“Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of ‘Bharat’ & and 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 Priyanka Chopra loads of love and happiness for life,” Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted. Reports are also abuzz that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have engaged a week ago on her 36th birthday and are going to tie the knot in October.
Meanwhile, Priyanka’s sudden exit, barely a few days before she started shooting for Bharat has left the makers in limbo and now all eyes will be set on the next actress who can come on board with Salman and Disha Patani. While every other Bollywood actress is currently busy with work assignments, we guess Katrina Kaif can come to the makers’ rescue. She was earlier a part of Bharat with PeeCee and Salman to play a cameo in this Ali Abbas Zafar directorial, but later decided to step out of the project and no one had any qualms. Now, with Priyanka’s exit, looks like the next best ideal choice to star opposite Salman is Katrina. It is a known fact that Salman and Katrina’s on-screen chemistry spills magic and this could certainly make Bharat a blockbuster.
