Salman Khan takes a dig at Priyanka Chopra for quitting ‘Bharat’


There were immense reports floating about Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra’s fall-out due to the actress last minute exit from ‘Bharat’. It didn’t go well with the superstar that Priyanka informed about quitting ‘Bharat’ at the last moment.

During the trailer launch of his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma's Bollywood debut film ‘Loveratri’, Salman sweetly took a dig at the actress. When Salman was asked about PeeCee's exit. Salman opened his heart out and said, “I am really happy for her. Uss waqt hum ko ye pata chalta ke unhone wahan par koi bahut badi film sign ki hai aur hume thoda pehla pata chalta to hum waise bhi usko kabhi rokte nahi (If we had known then that she has signed a big Hollywood film, we wouldn’t have stopped her from leaving the film). End moment pe pata chala, shooting ke 10 din pehle pata chala. Shooting shuru ho gayi thi meri, par unke schedule se 10 din pehle pata chala ki who picture chhodna chahti hai. (We go to know at the end moment, 10 days before the shooting that she wants to leave the film).

We said of course, if you don’t want to do it, don’t do it. Uss waqt kuchh alag reason diye gaye the hame (We were given another reason then..) Jo bhi reason hai, shaadi ka reason ho, ya picture ka reason ho, ya unko India main nahi kaam karna, ya mere saath nahi kaam karna, sirf Hollywood film aur TV show karna hai, wo unka reason hai. (Whatever it is, her wedding, Hollywood film or the fact that she does not want to work with me, it’s her reason.) We are really happy and supportive about her doing good work. Agar yahan pe kaam nahi kare to kya hua, waha pe to who Hindustan ka naam roshan kar rahi hai. Agar Salman Khan ke saath kaam nahi karna, waha ke kisi bade hero ke saath kaam kar rahi hai to Hindustan ka naam to roshan hota hai na (If she doesn’t want to work here with me, there in Hollywood she is making our country proud. If she doesn’t want to work with Salman Khan, she’ll work with a top actor in Hollywood and make our country proud).'

In the morning today at the Mumbai trailer launch of ‘Loveratri’, when Salman was asked about the same, he had said, “Main akhbar padhnahi raha hoon pichle teen-chaar din se, inhi cheezon main busy hoon,  jab main padh loonga toh apka jawaab zaroor doonga. (I have not been reading the newspaper in the past 2-3 days, I have been busy. When I do happen to read it, I shall definitely answer your question.”

Priyanka Chopra’s exit from ‘Bharat’ paved way for Katrina Kaif.
