Priyanka Chopra, Salman Khan avoid running into each other

It has recently been announced that Priyanka will star alongside Chris Pratt in the upcoming Hollywood film, Cowboy Ninja Viking. Speaking at the launch of the trailer of his new production Loveratri, Salman said some rather loaded things about his co-star of several films who, it was announced some days ago, had dropped out of Bharat, which Salman is headlining. We are really happy and supportive of her doing good work.

Priyanka and Salman were involved in a misunderstanding when she quit Bharat 10 days before she was scheduled to shoot for the film. While the actual reason is still unclear, director Ali Abbas Zafar's encrypted tweet unsing words "Nick of time' left many speculating that it was because of Priyanka's impending wedding with her alleged beau Nick Jonas".

But in Delhi, he burst out against Priyanka saying she had chosen to inform them of her departure just ten days before shooting, giving a reason that suggested marriage. If she does not want to work with Salman Khan, at least she is working with a big hero of Hollywood. So for her to get out dates in the middle of such big films, to do another film with me after Tiger Zinda Hai which was a huge success, we are really happy that she is part of Bharat because she is really hardworking and has been doing really well for herself. If we had known earlier that she had signed a big Hollywood film, we wouldn't have stopped her from leaving. "We said, 'Of course, if you don't want to do it, don't do it.' But honestly, we were given another reason then". "90 per cent of my life is for public consumption, but 10 per cent of it is for me". But in the midst of all this, the Bhai of Bollywood just couldn't escape the one big question - Priyanka Chopra's exit from his next film Bharat.

While Zafar was cordial and wished her all the best, others from the film's team called her unprofessional.

As Salman says, 'it's okay.' At the Loveratri event, Salman also thanked actress Katrina Kaif for filling the vacancy. With all these films, she said yes to Bharat, because of which we are very grateful to her.

Even Priyanka Chopra's mother Madhu denied the reports which claimed that Salman was upset with Priyanka.
