Round 1 went to Priyanka Chopra when she stormed out of Salman Khan’s Bharat. The Quantico actress put her nose in the front in Round 2 as well.
It happened last evening when the two were in Delhi for their respective events. While PeeCee was in the Capital for an interactive session titled ‘Challenging the Status Quo & Forging New Paths’ (organised Jointly by FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO) and Yes bank), the superstar launched the trailer of brother-in-law Aayush Sharma’s Bollywood debut, Loveratri.
The two would have come face-to-face while returning from New Delhi, however, the situation was avoided in the nick of time.
Says a source, “Priyanka had booked Ambani’s chartered flight from Delhi to Mumbai at 8.30 pm. Salman too wanted to fly back to Mumbai at the same time. But, since the actress had already booked the flight, the superstar had to change his plans. He flew out of the city at 2 am.”
Phew! An awkward moment avoided. Isn’t it?
Trouble began when Priyanka walked out of Salman’s Bharat. The film’s director, Ali Abbas Zaffar revealed that the actress has walked out of the project and stated that PeeCee has opted out owing to a very special reason and the team is happy for her decision.
Post that, Katrina came to the team’s rescue and replaced Priyanka. While the makers called PeeCee’s move ‘unprofessional’, Salim Khan, in an exclusive interview with SpotboyE.com, seemed unfazed by her exit and had said, "Koi bhi aa jayega uski (Priyanka's) jagah par." He even clarified that Salman is not upset with the actress.
Despite the superstar’s father’s declaration that all is well, Salman snubbed Priyanka’s mother at Manish Malhotra’s fashion show a few days ago.
In fact, at Loveratri’s trailer launch, Salman opened his heart out and spoke about Priyanka’s exit.
