Ever since Priyanka Chopra walked out of Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Bharat’, stories of a rift between Salman and her have started doing the rounds. Now even though both the parties are maintaining that everything is good between them, looks like it’s hardly the case.

After Priyanka walked out of the film just a few days before the shooting was about to begin, director Ali Abbas Zafar wished her all the best and even Salman had said at the trailer launch of his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma’s ‘Loveratri’ that he is happy for Priyanka and there are no hard feelings between them.

However, in his recent few interviews, Salman has opened up like never before and has taken a sly dig at Priyanka by saying that it was very sweet of her for leaving ‘Bharat’ just five days before the film was to go on floors. Recently, talking about PeeCee’s exit Salman was quoted saying in Bombay Times as, “It must have been very difficult for her to make this decision because she was very keen to work on this project. She has called up Arpita a thousand times, saying, ‘I want to work with Salman’. She has even called up Ali Abbas Zafar and told him, ‘See if you can get me something in this film’.”

Interestingly the ‘Sultan’ actor,  also acknowledged the fact that Priyanka had genuine reasons as he told DNA, “She had a genuine problem at that point of time, but it’s just that we should have known it slightly earlier. But I am sure it’s okay, hope that film (with Chirs Pratt) works out for her. She has got engaged and I am really happy.”

Well, we hope that things are actually good between these two stars. And so what they were not able to work together in ‘Bharat’? We hope to see them in some other film in the near future. What say, guys?
