Priyanka Chopra’s announcement on Thursday that she would no longer be doing Salman Khan’s home production Bharat has put the entire Khan clan/team into a state of shock. Director Ali Abbas Zafar put out a tweet confirming that PC was longer a part of the project and even hinted at a possible engagement between her and Nick Jonas who she has been dating for the last two months. This was enough to put the internet into a tizzy. 

However, there is another side to the story as well. A  source close  to Salman  Khan on condition of anonymity said to Bollywood Hungama, “This is madness. Considering it was Priyanka Chopra who was keen to be in the film. She  approached  Salman and his director  Ali Abbas Zafar at a  time when  they had almost  finalized  Katrina  Kaif. Priyanka told them she wanted to come back to Bollywood. Now when Bharat  has gone  on  the  floors she  has second thoughts?”

In his tweet announcing her exit director Ali Abbas Zafar has broadly hinted that Priyanka exited Bharat to get  married. However  sources close to Salman aren't too convinced about it. A source has been quoted as saying, “The  director who is a close friend of Priyanka, doesn’t want any ugly controversy about Priyanka’s exit. So he’s making it sound like an amicable  parting. Salman is hardly going to be pacified by the marriage alibi. Considering it was she (Priyanka) who  wanted to be  part of the project. And now she’s had second thoughts because of marriage? If she was getting married she’d have planned  it for after shooting for Bharat. This is not small film”

While  it’s too early to get a clear picture  on  the aftermath  of the  crisis, early indications are that Salman’s trusted friend Katrina Kaif will step into  the  part. “She was the first choice.And she’s also a close buddy  of  the director  from the time she played the  lead in his directorial debut Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Perhaps she was  destined to do Bharat," the source tells Bollywood Hungama.
