Many would leave their husband for Bharat, but Priyanka left the film: Salman Khan
The news about Priyanka Chopra being chosen to play the lead in Salman Khan’s Bharat is known. The team later clarified that she had to exit the project due to personal reasons.
Salman, who is busy promoting the film, recently opened up about PC quitting the film. He reportedly said, “Over Bharat, she chose USA in the ‘nick’ of time. She has worked all her life so hard and when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped the film and got married. Hats off!”
While talking to a leading organisation, he also reportedly said that she met him and said that she is going to get married and won't be able to work in the film. “I told Priyanka that we will adjust the dates for her. She said that she isn't sure how much time she needs for the preparation of her wedding,” he added.
The Tubelight actor also added, “While many would give anything for the film or maybe even leaving their husband, Priyanka left the film.”
He also reportedly said that ‘Priyanka was offered a meaty role, but she chose to play the role of a wife.’ “But Katrina (Kaif) is not playing the role of a wife and hence she is playing the character in Bharat,” Salman said, in conversation with a leading media house.
Bharat is an official remake of South Korean film Ode to My Father. It marks Salman’s third collaboration with Ali after Sultan (2016) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017). The cast includes Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Sonali Kulkarni, Disha Patani, Shashank Arora and Nora Fatehi. The film is set to release on June 5, 2019.
