Last year, just about 10 days before 'Bharat' started shooting, Priyanka Chopra suddenly informed the crew that she would walk out of the project. The film producer has opened up for the first time about Priyanka's exit.

This June, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are ready to set the box office on fire with Bharat. When the few promos and film's songs were released, it has received big clap from the audiences. In a recent interaction with Pinkvilla, Bharat's producer Atul Agnihotri has opened up about the film's making process and difficulties they faced when the "supposed heroin lead" Priyanka Chopra pulled out just ten days before the shooting.

At the first place, Bharat expected to see Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan's reunion as the two Bollywood superstars haven't be seen together in the silver screen for a long time. However, just days before shooting schedule, PeeCee walked out from the project due to personal reason and left everyone in shock with her sudden decision.

According to the report, earlier Priyanka even flew to Dubai to meet Salman Khan for a role in Bharat. Nevertheless, when the actress finally got the heroin role she wants, Priyanka informed the crew that she couldn't take part in the film due to her impending wedding.

Talking about Priyanka's exit, producer Atul Agnihotri who presented on the set that day said:

He further added that Katrina Kaif is actually the first choice for the film instead of Priyanka Chopra.


When being asked if Priyanka Chopra got back to him since she walked out of Bharat, the producer honestly answered: "Priyanka still hasn't texted me. She never spoke to me about walking out of Bharat." He further added he understood Priyanka's decision at that moment; however, the crew was still challenged with few problems after her departure.

Bharat which is expected to make a big hit in the cinema will be released on 5 June 2019.
