Every year, Salman Khan release a typical Bollywood film on the festival of Eid to treats his fans. And 2020 would be no different.
However, for his next Eid release, Bollywood’s Bhaijaan has decided to not even consider Priyanka Chopra to be his leading lady media reported late Thursday. When Salman Khan’s team suggested one day Priyanka’s for the female lead role in the upcoming movie, the actor refused, the report said.
Salman’s decision to overlook Priyanka comes after last year the “desi girl” walked out of his film titled “Bharat” to marry American pop-singer Nick Jonas.
The movie, released in June this year, stars actress Katrina Kaif and emerged as a commercial success with a worldwide gross of US $47 million (Rs. 325.58 crore).
The on-screen couple that has already bedazzled the silver screen in three films previously, was set to reunite on camera after 12 years. After Priyanka quit “Bharat”, Salman went on to slam her in a series of public statement.
At the wrap-up party of her upcoming movie “The sky is Pink” while hinting at “Bharat”, Priyanka was heard saying, “Amid various options at that point, everyone questions me about why this movie? Why not this tent-pole, potboiler with song and dance”.
