After director Ali Abbas Zafar revealed that Priyanka has dropped out of the film, there were various reports that were circulating about Salman Khan being upset with the actress. That’s not it. It was also reported that Salman has vowed to never work with the actress again.
But how true was it? Well, Priyanka’s mother has opened up about the issue and has rubbished all these rumours. Recently, in a media interaction, Madhu Chopra was asked about Priyanka’s sudden exit from Bharat. When asked if Salman is angry because of PeeCee’s decision, Madhu said, “You people (Media) only make such stuff up, Salman is not upset with her.”
She further talked about the incident when a producer of Bharat called Priyanka ‘unprofessional’. She called those rumours off too, saying that nothing like that has happened and everything is good.
A few days back, Ali Abbas Zafar took to his twitter account to share about Priyanka’s exit. Going by his tweet, it seemed like there is no hard feelings between the two. His tweet also hinted at Priyanka & Nick’s engagement, a topic which still hasn’t been touched by Priyanka.
