Priyanka Chopra quit Salman Khan's Bharat and got engaged to Nick Jonas soon enough. Although the walkout shocked us, we are definitely happy for the couple. However, now that we are hearing their wedding might not even happen this year, we are left with just one question, 'Why did she quit Bharat then?' Turns out Salman Khan too asked the same question to PC.
In his interview to Bombay Times, Salman opened up like never before about PC and Bharat. He said, "I told her, ‘If you are getting engaged, what’s the need (of exiting the project)?’ Then she said, ‘Shaadi karni hai’ to which I said ‘Toh shaadi kar lo’. Priyanka’s work was for 75-80 days. Shaadi ke liye chaar din ka preparation, aur chaar din ki shaadi, aath din ke andar ho gayi aur phir uske baad honeymoon. (It takes four days of preparation, four days for the wedding, it’s done in eight days and then the honeymoon.) So, we said we will work it out. But she was very clear that she didn’t want to be a part of the film." But the actor understands the decision may not have been an easy one for PC to make. He said, "It must have been very difficult for her to make this decision because she was very keen to work on this project. She has called up Arpita a thousand times, saying, ‘I want to work with Salman’. She has even called up Ali (Abbas Zafar, director) and told him, ‘See if you can get me something in this film’.
Salman Khan has also figured out what could have prompted her to do so. "Not doing this had to be because of the wedding or because she doesn’t want to work with me anymore. It could also be because she doesn’t want to work in humari industry (Bollywood) or wants to work only in Hollywood. Whatever she wants to do, I wish her all the best in life. We are glad that she is engaged and happy," explains Salman Khan.
