There’s been lots of talk about Priyanka Chopra’s sudden exit from Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat opposite Salman Khan. While the alleged reason of the exit is Priyanka’s engagement to beau Nick Jonas, there have been reports that PeeCee wasn’t too pleased with her role.
However soon after, Salman Khan confirmed that Katrina Kaif had replaced Priyanka Chopra in the film:

When asked if she felt she had saved the film in a way, Katrina said, “It’s not like that. I don’t see it that way at all. Ali Abbas Zafar is a very dear friend of mine. We have worked with each other earlier in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Tiger Zinda Hai and both films were extremely successful. More importantly, I had a great experience working on those two films.”
Earlier, Katrina had mentioned that she chose Bharat for its script over anything else. She had previously said, “The roles which I have chosen for myself are purely based on script and what my character is in that film. So for me, it is extremely exciting to be working with the team again.”
Are you looking forward to watch Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in Bharat?
