Ever since Priyanka Chopra Jonas made a revelation on Karan Johar’s talk show ‘Koffee With Karan’ about a project being discussed with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the rumours have gone into overdrive. One rumour floating around is whether she was talking about the upcoming movie Bhansali is said to making with Salman Khan. But this may not be a done deal as Khan is not keen to work with her post her having walked out of ‘Bharat’ for her upcoming wedding at the time.
However, many in the industry still feel that the real reason was her signing a Chris Pratt movie in Hollywood, which ultimately did not take off. Either way, the star had walked out of ‘Bharat’ few days before the shooting was to commence, reports CineBlitz. Her role was immediately passed on to Katrina Kaif. Interestingly however, rumours are rife that it is in fact Bhansali who is not keen to work with Chopra.
She had earlier turned down Bhansali’s ambitious project ‘Heera Mandi.’ An insider says, “Bhansali was hopeful that Priyanka will take it up as it’s a project close to his heart and she knows how special it is for him. But she refused to do the film citing date issues. Now that Bhansali has decided to first go ahead with Salman Khan’s film, talks are that if PeeCee did not have dates for Heera Mandi, then she may not have dates for the Salman film either.”
