Priyanka Chopra’s exit from Salman Khan starrer Bharat took everyone by surprise. The real reason is still not known. Amidst all the hullabaloo, Priyanka has now gone ahead to begin shoot for her next Bollywood flick with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim.
A little while ago, PeeCee took to Instagram stories to share a pic from the first day of the shoot. Have a look:
Priyanka captioned the pic as: "#TheSkyIsPink #FirstDayOfShoot (sic)."
The film is tentatively titled The Sky Is Pink, but reports suggest that it's just a working title.
Trade expert Taran Adarsh also took to social media to share another pic from the first day of shoot. He captioned the pic as: "Filming begins today...

Talking about Ms Chopra's exit from Bharat, Salman Khan recently spoke about it at the trailer launch of Loveratri.
Said Salman, “I am really happy for her. Uss waqt hum ko ye pata chalta ke unhone wahan par koi bahut badi film sign ki hai aur hume thoda pehla pata chalta to hum waise bhi usko kabhi rokte nahi (If we had known then that she has signed a big Hollywood film, we wouldn’t have stopped her from leaving the film). End moment pe pata chala, shooting ke 10 din pehle pata chala. Shooting shuru ho gayi thi meri, par unke schedule se 10 din pehle pata chala ki who picture chhodna chahti hai. (We go to know at the end moment, 10 days before the shooting that she wants to leave the film). We said of course, if you don’t want to do it, don’t do it. Uss waqt kuchh alag reason diye gaye the hame (We were given another reason then..) Jo bhi reason hai, shaadi ka reason ho, ya picture ka reason ho, ya unko India main nahi kaam karna, ya mere saath nahi kaam karna, sirf Hollywood film aur TV show karna hai, wo unka reason hai. (Whatever it is, her wedding, Hollywood film or the fact that she does not want to work with me, it’s her reason.) We are really happy and supportive about her doing good work. Agar yahan pe kaam nahi kare to kya hua, waha pe to who Hindustan ka naam roshan kar rahi hai. Agar Salman Khan ke saath kaam nahi karna, waha ke kisi bade hero ke saath kaam kar rahi hai to Hindustan ka naam to roshan hota hai na (If she doesn’t want to work here with me, there in Hollywood she is making our country proud. If she doesn’t want to work with Salman Khan, she’ll work with a top actor in Hollywood and make our country proud)."
Priyanka, however, has chosen to keep silent on the controversy till now. Is this yet untitled Shonali Bose film one of the reasons for her walking out?
It is surely not Nick Jonas! If she had quit Bharat due to wedding, she wouldn’t have done The Sky Is Pink in the same time.
