On Friday filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar announced the exit of Bollywood actor from Salman Khan starrer Bharat. While Zafar quoted the reason for Priyanka’s exit to be “very very special” and wished her “loads of love & happiness”, several reports suggest that her decision has left the film’s producer and Salman miffed. The CEO of Atul Agnihotri’s Reel Life Productions Nikhil Namit called Priyanka’s decision “unprofessional”.
Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted and informed the audience that the shooting of Bharat is in its full swing and the name of the new female lead of the period drama will be announced soon. Early on Saturday morning, he tweeted, “Yes yes yes … we will announce the leading lady of Bharat soon.. We have been shooting Non-stop and the simultaneously preparing for international schedules ….” The names of Katrina Kaif and Jacqueline Fernandez have popped up to play the lead opposite Salman in the movie.
