Mumbai: Actor Salman Khan has finally said what he felt when co-actor Priyanka Chopra decided to leave his new venture, 'Bharat'. During the trailer launch of Loveratri in New Delhi, the actor spoke at length about Priyanka’s decision to quit Bharat.
Salman said that Priyanka informed them about leaving the film 10 days before her shoot was to begin. Bearing his heart out, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan said, “I am really happy for her. Had we known that she has signed such a big film in Hollywood and known it well in advance, we would not have stopped her from leaving our film. She told us at the very last moment, just 10 days before shoot. My shooting had already begun but we got to know she wants to leave the film just 10 days before shoot.”
“So what if she doesn’t work here? She is making India proud out there. If she doesn’t work with Salman but works with a big hero in Hollywood, she is making India proud,” he added.
Film’s director Ali Abbas Zafar wrote in a tweet in July that Priyanka was leaving the film in the ‘Nick of time’, hunting at her reported engagement to singer Nick Jonas. It was later revealed that she has also signed an action movie, Cowboy Ninja Viking with Chris Pratt.
