For any director, his lead actress walking out of his project on the last moment is a huge blow, as finding an apt replacement is a task. Such was the case of Ali Abbas Zafar when global diva Priyanka Chopra exited his last outing Bharat, co-starring Salman Khan, only a few days before it was to go on floors. Well, this created a lot of mess and the makers eventually zeroed down to Katrina Kaif. This also gave rise to speculations of a rift between Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan. While the actor has given his stance on this issue a couple of times, now, Priyanka Chopra, too, has opened up on the same.

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, the Bajirao Mastani actress rubbished all such claims by describing Salman Khan as one amazing human being and that she has always admired him. She added how after the controversy, Salman Khan turned up at her and Nick Jonas’ wedding reception. “The only thing I’d say is that if there was a reaction required you’d have had it by now. Salman is amazing. I’ve always admired him. He came for Nick and my reception, we went to his house, and I’m really close to his sister (Arpita Khan). So, there’s never an issue with him,” said Priyanka Chopra.

Earlier, in an interview with Bombay Times, Salman Khan also had only good things to say about PeeCee. “I have no problem with Priyanka. It’s a wonderful thing what she has done. She did it knowing perhaps that I might get upset, I might not like it or I might not work with her… Despite all the thoughts that may have crossed her mind, she chose to get married to a man instead of this movie, which is a correct, noble and gutsy thing to do,” said the actor.

So, all is well, guys!

Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra is currently deep-neck into the promotions of her upcoming Bollywood film, The Sky Is Pink, which is slated to release on October 11, 2019.
