About two months ago, the world came to know that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are dating each other. Ever since then, the internet is brimming with their pictures, updates on their future plans and little details about the new couple. The two have also left their fans gushing over their sweet exchange of comments on the social media. Their similar Cartier rings in pictures on the social media have even left netizens guessing if the two have been secretly engaged.
However, from the recent updates from Priyanka’s side, it looks like the big day is yet to come. As per reports doing rounds in the media, Priyanka Chopra has quit Salman Khan’s ‘Bharat’ since the beauty queen is getting engaged to her American singer-actor beau.
‘Bharat’ is being produced by Atul Agnihotri and Alvira and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Zafar is the one who announced Priyanka’s exit from the film with the following tweet:
Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of @Bharat_TheFilm & 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 @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life 😊😉😍

As per buzz going on in the media, Salman Khan is deeply angered with Priyanka Chopra’s decision to quit his film. Reports say that Salman has vowed not to work with Priyanka Chopra again.
Now, as per latest reports, it’s not just Salman Khan who is offended with Priyanka’s exit from ‘Bharat’. Salman Khan’s father Salim Khan also appears to be quite upset. However, as per his statement to the media, it looks like the veteran has minced his words while commenting on PeeCee’s exit.
While the producer of ‘Bharat’ tagged Priyanka Chopra “unprofessional”, Salim Khan said that it is common for stars to walk out of films in Bollywood. SpotBoyE quotes him further saying:
“It’s okay whatever happened. Priyanka is not doing Bharat, let her be. Such things happen in our industry. Has it happened for the first time that someone has left a film? Our very own Zanjeer went through so many ins and outs. Such things happen- sometimes they happen for date issues, or the role, or even the money aspect. Aur kabhi aadmi ki kuch apni majbooriyan hoti hai (and sometimes people have their own problems). I haven’t yet got into the details of why Priyanka left Bharat, but we shall soon cast someone else. We are not upset with Priyanka. Salman Khan is also not upset.”
However, what Salim Khan said next could leave Priyanka Chopra thinking that he called her just another actress. He said:
“Koi bhi aa jayega uski jagah par. Bahut saare log hain.” (Anybody can come in her place. There are many people.)
According to the latest buzz around the leading lady of ‘Bharat’, it is expected that either Katrina Kaif or Jacqueline Fernandez could replace Priyanka Chopra.
