If gossip columns are to be believed, battle lines have been drawn between Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra. The actress was supposed to make her comeback in Bollywood opposite Salman in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, but she walked out of the film at the last minute. It is being said that Priyanka’s exit left Salman fuming, and he has vowed never to work with her again.
At a recent event, Priyanka’s mother Madhu Chopra was asked about her fallout with Salman. Denying any such thing, she said, “You people (media) only make such stuff up, Salman is not upset with her.”
Salman’s father Salim Khan had something similar to say when he was asked about the same. “It’s okay whatever happened. Priyanka is not doing Bharat, let her be. Such things happen in our industry,” he told an entertainment website, emphasising, “We are not upset with Priyanka. Salman Khan is also not upset.”
Speculation was rife that Priyanka had bowed out of Bharat because she was getting married to Nick Jonas. Director Ali Abbas Zafar’s cryptic tweet seemed to hint at the same.
However, she surprised everyone by signing a big-ticket Hollywood film opposite Chris Pratt shortly after her exit from Bharat. According to some reports, Priyanka excused herself from Bharat as she was unhappy with the remuneration offered to her.
