walking out of Salman Khan’s Bharat created a stir in the industry, and the
place vacated by her was filled by Salman’s ex-girlfriend, Katrina Kaif in just
a few days. After making the official announcement, that Ms. Kaif has replaced
Chopra in Bharat, reports of PeeCee grabbing a Hollywood offer opposite
Jurassic World and Guardians Of The Galaxy actor, Chris Pratt has made its way
to the Internet.
Well yes! Amidst
of her engagement and wedding rumours, the Quantico star has reportedly given
her nod to play the love interest of Pratt. According to a report in EW.com,
Priyanka will be the leading lady in Cowboy Ninja Viking, an action drama from
Universal Pictures. The film stars Chris Pratt as a multifaceted assassin.
Talking about the big replacement, Ali Abbas Zafar had told Mumbai Mirror, "I am extremely excited to work with Katrina and Salman again. We have had exciting collaborations in the past. Katrina got on board in the ‘Nick’ of time for this project.”
As cool as the
director of the film was, same was not the case with producer Nikhil Namit.
In a conversation with Mid-day, Nikhil, the CEO of Reel Life Productions, who's bankrolling the film, had alleged that Priyanka intimated the team just two days ago (July 25), and cited her move as "unprofessional". "Priyanka told us she had to exit due to her engagement, two days ago. It was a little unprofessional of her to do it so suddenly," Nikhil had told the tabloid. Nikhil not only confirmed that the reason given by PeeCee to the makers was her engagement but also expressed that the producers were not very happy with her decision.
However, with the news of Priyanka signing Cowboy Ninja Viking with Chris, this already jumbled quiz of “why PeeCee left Bharat?" has got even more tricky.
