Salman Khan recently revealed that Priyanka Chopra called his sister Arpita Khan Sharma 1000 times to be in his next film ‘Bharat’. He added that she even called the director of the film, Ali Abbas Zafar, to include her somehow in the film.
Now, according to the latest reports, it was not just the calls, PC also met Salman in person to persuade him for the same. The report stated that Chopra flew down to Dubai to meet Bhaijaan and asked him to sign her as the female lead for ‘Bharat’.
However, Priyanka backed out from the film when shooting was about to start and reportedly, the reason given was her engagement with American pop singer Nick Jonas.
There were reports, which claimed that she opted out of the film because she might get overshadowed by Disha Patani and Tabu, who are also part of the film.
Meanwhile, Katrina Kaif has been got onboard after Priyanka’s exit. The film team will soon start their next shooting schedule in Dubai. The film is slated to release on Eid 2019.
