Bharat was slated to be Chopra’s first Hind film after Jai Gangajal in 2016. Since then the star was busy in performing in Hollywood series ‘Quantico’.
The director further extended warm wishes to Priyanka Chopra, though he did not specify the reason only subtly mentioned her relationship with Hollywood celebrity Nick Jonas.
“Yes, Priyanka Chopra, is no more part of @Bharat_TheFilm & and the reason is very very special, she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her … Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life.”
Priyanka Chopra is supposedly in a relationship with celebrity Nick Jonas. The couple is rumored to be engaged and will soon tie the knot. The news rife on social media states that Priyanka Chopra retracted from the movie due to her commitment to Nick Jonas.
The producer of the movie Nikhil Namit, however, expressed ire over Priyanka’s withdrawal from the project. In an interview to an entertainment portal, “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,” he said.
Reportedly Salman Khan is also furious over Priyanka Chopra’s decision. Salman Khan is reported to have said never to work again with Priyanka Chopra.
