Lately, Priyanka Chopra has walked out of the film “Bharat” opposite Salman Khan, after informing the team in the “Nick of time”. Fans are hugely disappointed and upset by this. Priyanka was all set to make her homecoming to Bollywood after reining over Hollywood. Director Ali Abbas Zafar took to twitter to announce the news. To this a lot of fans have jumped into a guessing game as to who will replace PC after her exit.
The CEO of Reel Life Productions, Nikhil Namit, who is producing the film stated in an interview to Mid-Day, “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.” The team has plunged into despair with this sudden exit of “Desi Girl”. The Mid-Day report also added that Salman is gravely searching for an alternative with Katrina Kaif or Jacqueline Fernandez as the most probable option.
Priyanka Chopra and the American singing sensation Nick Jonas have been dating for some time now and have procured the headlines. It is a great surprise for fans to know that they have taken it further to engagement and now marriage. Reports suggest that PC’s beau Nick Jonas had popped the question on her birthday while they were in London. To add to it, sources suggest that Jonas had made the proposal to Priyanka on his knees with a ring from Tiffanny’s.
The news has taken a toll on the entire “Bharat” team. While Nimit is taken by shock and calls PC’s move as unprofessional, director Ali Abbas Zafar takes to twitter to confirm that she has walked out of the film. He sends her “loads of love and happiness” and also drops a major hint by saying that she informed the team just in the “Nick of time”.
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 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,” a source told Mid-Day. The source further added that Katrina is almost convinced and might join the team anytime now.
A lot of fans have suggested the director as a reply to his aforementioned tweet that Katrina would be the right choice. It is quite apparent that fans want him to rope Katrina for the role after the hugely successful pair up of Salman and Katrina in “Ek Tha Tiger” and “Tiger Zinda Hai”.
To the quench the curiosity of fans, director Ali Abbas Zafar tweets, “Yes yes yes … we will announce the leading lady of Bharat soon.. We have been shooting Non stop and the simultaneously preparing for international schedules ….”
Yes yes yes … we will announce the leading lady of Bharat soon.. We have been shooting Non stop and the simultaneously preparing for international schedules ….

“Bharat” has already hit the floors and Salman Khan and Disha Patani have already begun shooting for the same. Priyanka was supposed to join them in August. In the meanwhile, let’s have a look at who has applied for Priyanka’s role after her exit:
— Sunil Grover (@WhoSunilGrover) July 27, 2018
The multitalented Sunil Grover who is famous for his comedy dressed as a woman in different comedy shows, applies for PC’s role. The actor took to twitter and posted a video of him dressed as a man, applying for the same. Grover is already a part of the film’s cast. The film also stars Nora Fatehi and Tabu in key roles. It is slated to be released in Eid 2019. While everyone is curious as to who will replace Priyanka, let’s hope whoever comes in does justice to the role.
