The controversial exit of Priyanka Chopra from Salman Khan's ambitious venture, Bharat, has become one hot topic of discussion. While director Ali Abbas Zafar announced her exit in the most dignified way, producer Nikhil Namit, the CEO of Reel Life Productions, who's also bankrolling the film, called her 'unprofessional'. "Priyanka told us she had to exit due to her engagement, two days ago. It was a little unprofessional of her to do it so suddenly," said Nikhil to the tabloid.
And now, Salman Khan's father Salim Khan has reacted to Priyanka's sudden exit and took a sly dig at Priyanka, while revealing if his son, Salman, is upset with PeeCee or not.
Salim Khan Says Such Things Happen In The Industry
While speaking to SpotboyE, Salim Khan said, "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."
Salim Khan On Salman Khan Being Upset With Priyanka
"Nope, it's not the nth hour. And I repeat, 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.
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."
Salim Khan On PeeCee's Replacement
"Ko bhi aa jayeja (uski jagah par). Bahut saare log hain," said Salim Khan, while talking about Priyanka's replacement. For the uninitiated, Katrina has been already finalized by the makers and they have announced her name as well!
Salman Brought Katrina Into Bharat
A tabloid quoted a source as saying, "Priyanka had been in talks with the Bharat team over the past two weeks about how she may have to opt out for personal reasons.
Sensing Priyanka's iffy attitude, Salman initiated talks with Katrina during their Dabangg Reloaded Tour in the US. Other names including that of Jacqueline are also being tossed around,".
Fans Are Damn Excited For Bharat!
The film recently went on floors with Salman Khan and Disha Patani. Ali had shared recently a sneak peek from the film that showed Salman entering a ring of fire on a bike, in a circus.
Bharat Is A Remake Of A Korean Movie
Bharat, which will be shot in Abu Dhabi, Spain and India, will feature the superstar sporting five different looks, spanning 60 years, wherein a crucial part will showcase the actor in his late 20s, looking leaner and younger.
Produced by Atul Agnihotri, the film is an adaptation of the 2014 South Korean movie, Ode To My Father.
