Priyanka Chopra has taken an exit from the Salman Khan -starrer ‘Bharat’. The reason reportedly is Nick Jonas. As per reports, PeeCee informed the same to the team earlier on Thursday which left Salman Khan bemused.
A report by a daily stated that it might definitely affect Priyanka’s professional and personal equation with Salman. It also suggested that those close to the actor maintain how rigid Salman is about committing to a film and will he forget Priyanka’s decision only time will tell.
