    After all the speculations and assumptions about Salman being miffed from Priyanka's sudden exit from the movie "Bharat", Salmaan finally gave media his opinion on PeeCee's sudden exit from the movie. Shedding some light on the controversy he said,“I’m really happy for her. If we knew it before that she has been signed for a very big film there, we would never have stopped her. Just that we got to know about it in the very end, just 10 days before her schedule was to begin. She came home. I said ‘no problem, if you don’t want to do it, then don’t do it’.”

    And when asked about the alleged Priyanka and Nick's wedding, Salman told media that, “We were given some other reasons at that time, that (laughs), well, you all would understand! That might also be the reason, or maybe this one. Whatever be it – marriage, or some other film or she doesn’t wish to work in India at the moment, or she doesn’t wish to work with me, she just wants to do Hollywood films and TV shows, whatever be the reason, it is her call. We are really happy and supportive about her doing really good work. Even if she isn’t working here, she is making India proud outside. Even if she doesn’t wish to work with Salman, it’s fine, she is working with some big star there. At least it makes India proud. We were pretty okay with that.”
