Priyanka Chopra's exit from Salman Khan's Bharat has created international headlines primarily because it's being linked to her possible engagement. However, it does not mean that she has said 'no' to Bollywood. Reports say that marriage or no marriage, she has started preparations for  shoot with Farhan Akhtar for Shonali Bose's The Sky is Pink.

A  source  close to the project confirms, “Priyanka  Chopra starts shooting for our film from August 8 in  Mumbai. There  is  no change in her plans. If she was getting married she would have informed us by now. She  was supposed to join Salman Khan’s crew for Bharat in  the second week of August. The  plan was to shoot for Bharat and The Sky Is Pink simultaneously in Mumbai. Now  she’s only going to  shoot  for our film.”

The source  close to  Shonali Bose’s film  says marriage was  not the reason Priyanka quit Bharat. “It was  probably  the  length  of her role. We can’t be sure. But in our film she  is  the central character. Bharat is Salman’s show all  the way,” says the source. A  director who has worked  closely with Priyanka is perplexed  by her abrupt exit . “It is a  little  strange that Priyanka  didn’t realize the scope of her role when she agreed  to do Bharat.” 

The industry is abuzz with rumours that Salman Khan and PC were never friends to begin with. She had allegedly offended Salman by refusing a project they were supposed to do together. It was almost after a decade that they were getting together. However, with her walkout from Bharat, it remains to be seen what impact it will have on her professional relationship with the Tiger Zinda Hai star.

Meanwhile, The Sky is Pink team appears to be gung-ho about the project based that is a sensitive tale of Ayesha Chowdhury, a motivational speaker who died young. There have been behind-the-scenes videos doing the rounds that shows an excited Priyanka Chopra with the team.
