While answering questions pertaining to Priyanka’s exit, the actor said that he is really happy for her and if they knew that she has signed a big Hollywood project, nobody would have stopped her. The ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ actor said that Chopra came to his house and informed him only 10 days before her schedule was to begin.
When Salman Khan was asked whether the actual reason for her quitting is her marriage or something else, he said that they were given some other reasons at that time. He also added that the marriage could be a reason or the one given to them. The actor further said that whatever the reason is -marriage or some other film or she does not wish to work with him, or she wants to do only Hollywood TV and film, it is her call.

Salman Khan said that even if she is not working in India, she is making India proud abroad by working with big stars there. The actor said that he is completely okay with it.
Thankfully for the team of Bharat, Katrina Kaif got on board replacing Priyanka and saving the film. The ‘Tubelight’ actor said that when Priyanka said that she could not work on the film, the team gave her good wishes and then approached Katrina.
