When Salman Khan was questioned about Priyanka Chopra’s sudden exit from Bharat, the actor spoke at length about Priyanka’s decision to quit Bharat at the trailer launch of Loveratri in New Delhi on Monday. He said “I haven’t read the newspaper in the last few days, when I do, I will have an answer for you,” Salman said, adding that he has been busy with Loveratri’s promotions lately.
Salman Takes Dig At Priyanka Chopra for Quitting Bharat on ‘Short Notice’
Salman said that Priyanka informed them about leaving the film 10 days before her shoot was to begin. “I am really happy for her. Had we known that she has signed such a big film in Hollywood and known it well in advance, we would not have stopped her from leaving our film. She told us at the very last moment, just 10 days before shoot. My shooting had already begun but we got to know she wants to leave the film just 10 days before shoot,” he said.
He also said it was her choice if she wants to work with him or a ‘bada hero’ from Hollywood. “We said of course, if you don’t want to do it, don’t do it. We were given different reasons back then. But whatever the reason may be, the wedding, the movie, or if she doesn’t want to work in an Indian movie, or doesn’t want to work with me, or work only in Hollywood film and TV, these are her reasons. We are really happy and supportive about her doing good work,” he said.
Whatever the reason may be, whether she’s getting married, or she doesn’t like the film, or she doesn’t want to work in India or doesn’t want to work with me, that’s her choice. We are really happy and supportive about her doing good work,” he concluded.

Earlier, Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu had dismissed reports of Salman being upset with Priyanka. She had said, “You people (media) only make such stuff up, Salman is not upset with her.”
In fact, Salman’s father Salim Khan had refuted the rumours. In an interview to SpotBoye, the veteran writer had said, “It’s okay whatever happened. Priyanka is not doing Bharat, let her be. Such things happen in our industry”.
Katrina Kaif has replaced Priyanka in the film. Bharat also stars Disha Patani and Tabu, and will release in Eid 2019.
