Priyanka WALKED OUT of Bharat because of Salman Khan and with Tabu and Disha Patani’s entry?
A lot has been written and spoken about Priyanka Chopra’s exit from the Salman Khan-starrer Bharat. While the official reason for it is touted to be Priyanka’s engagement and impending marriage to Nick Jonas, the real reason seems to be something far off from what the director of the film revealed.
Till now, many reports have claimed various different reasons for the same. A few stated that the PeeCee was not happy with too many actors getting added to the film. With Tabu and Disha Patani’s entry into the film, the actress was reportedly miffed and decided against doing the film.
Recently, Salman Khan for the first time opened up and spoke about Priyanka’s exit and said, “She has called up Arpita a thousand times, saying, ‘I want to work with Salman’. She has even called up Ali (Abbas Zafar) and told him, ‘See if you can get me something in this film.”
A very close friend of Salman adds, “This is true. Salman never lies. What he didn’t mention was that Priyanka went to meet Salman in Dubai to ask him for the heroine’s role in Bharat. And when she finally got it she didn’t want to do it.”
Now a source close to Priyanka has spilled the real beans to Bollywood Hungama. There is one more reason that propelled Priyanka to opt out of the film.
The source says, “Priyanka was put off when she got to know two other heroines were added to the plot, first Tabu and then Disha Patani. This is when Priyanka had her doubts. She also got to know about Salman’s habit of arriving late on the sets and starting his work way past lunch time, while his leading ladies’ scenes with Salman are shot in his absence. This is a work mode that did not suit Priyanka’s temperament, not after working in the unconditionally professional atmosphere in Hollywood and America.”
Adds the source, “It is true that Priyanka Chopra pursued the role in Bharat in every way possible. But at this stage of her career working on roles that challenge her is more important than being seen with A-list superstars in Bollywood.Priyanka is all set to marry Nick Jonas. They will produce films together. She can co-star with anyone she wants.”
