The news of Priyanka Chopra not going to be part of Bharat has baffled not only us but Bollywood superstar, Salman Khan, as well. PeeCee, who was all set to make her comeback to Bollywood with Ali Abbas Zafar, was too excited to share the screen space with Salman after a gap of so many years, but her sudden decision to quit has saddened us and we bet the actor is mighty annoyed either. The Quantico actor took the decision to quit because of her quick decision to wed beau and American singer Nick Jonas, which is likely to take place in October this year. According to a US Weekly report, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas got engaged a week ago on her 36th birthday in London and are going to tie the knot in October.
Meanwhile, we all know about the fact that Salman’s professional relationship with Priyanka has always been a bumpy ride, and after PeeCee’s decision to quit, the actor is only going to get furious with her. Keeping in mind how particular Salman is with his films and the cast he works with, this latest update is only going to make it bitter and not better. Though the actress 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. Mujhse Shaadi Karogi was Salman-Priyanka’s last film and they didn’t work with each other after 2008. Post this, the stars weren’t on talking terms and 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. However, things were finally working in their favour when Arpita broke the ice between the two stars, post which she convinced Salman to ask Priyanka to star in Bharat.
Now, after Priyanka’s shocking decision, it’s high time we think that nothing is going to help her strengthen the bond with the entire Khan family. In fact, an insider has revealed to Bollywood Life that Salman has vowed to never work with Priyanka again.
