'Happy for Priyanka, she is making India proud'
Superstar Salman Khan has congratulated Priyanka Chopra for bagging a major Hollywood project but said he got to know about her exit from Bharat just 10 days before the shooting.
Director Ali Abbas Zafar had shared the news that Priyanka had left the project while hinting that it was because of her engagement with boyfriend Nick Jonas. But there were reports of a fallout between Salman and the 'Quantico' star, who has just bagged Hollywood film Cowboys Ninja Vikings opposite Chris Pratt
Salman said if they knew that she had signed a big film in Hollywood, they wouldn't have stopped her.
"We got to know about it at the end moment and that too 10 days before the start of shooting. We got to know that she wants to leave the film and she has gone home," Salman said. The actor said Priyanka gave a "different reason" to them about leaving the film.
"Whatever the reason, whether marriage or film, or she does not want to work in India or she does not want to work with me and in only Hollywood films and TV shows, it's hers," he said.
"We are happy and supportive about her doing really good work. So what if she is not working here. She is making India proud. If she does not want to work with Salman Khan, at least she is working with a big hero of Hollywood."
