Off late, Salman Khan received a lot of flak owing to his constant jibes at Priyanka Chopra for choosing marriage with Nick Jonas over his project, Bharat. In his several interviews, Salman Khan took digs at Priyanka and it left many fans of PeeCee miffed. Many netizens slammed Salman Khan on Twitter and called out his 'toxic masculinity'. Now, Katrina Kaif reacts to Salman-Priyanka's alleged cold war and here's what the actress has to say..
Katrina Defends Salman
While speaking to Bollywood Hungama, Katrina reacted to Salman's jibes at Priyanka and said, "You have to take everything that Salman says with a big bucket of salt. I think we all know that by now. He just says it for effect, he does not mean it."
Did Katrina Put Herself In Trouble?
Katrina further added, "Sometimes, in interviews I am biting my tongue like 5 times in a day, but it's all in good fun. I don't take it seriously."
We wonder if this statement of Katrina would offend the fans of Priyanka Chopra. After all, they are anything but happy with Salman's constant jibes.
Here's What Salman Had Said Earlier..
Earlier, Salman had said, "Over Bharat, she (Priyanka) 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! Usually people leave the husbands for this."
He Was Slammed Left & Right
Saumya Bansal @saumyabansal5: "@BeingSalmanKhan On one side you say Kat was your first choice for #Bharat but now you clearly don't seem to be taking #PriyankaChopra 's rejection that well. Really glad she left the film and chose the man of her dreams over the ones full of toxic masculinity."
Gargi@gargi_b11: "The best joke of the year is that Bharat was the biggest movie of her career . None of these movies are great for any leading actresses to regret rejecting them. They are always a side-kick to the male leads."
Meanwhile, All Eyes On Salman's Mega Release
