While the fans of the Desi girl are rejoicing to know about Priyanka getting hitched, there are few who are despondent to know that she won't be featuring opposite Salman anymore. At least, in near future. Priyanka and Salman's jodi is considered a hit and they together make a lovable pair onscreen. The duo starred together in many films and was last seen in 2008 released 'God Tussi Great Ho'.
However, the relationship between them soured afterwards and they did not work with each other after 2008. It was reported that a fallout that took place between them after Priyanka said no to Salman for a film he was producing. The film had featured Sohail Khan and Kareena Kapoor was later taken in as the lead heroine.
Priyanka, who shared a close bond with Salman's sister Arpita and was keen to make her comeback to Bollywood after her stint in Hollywood. When Arpita came to know about this, she broke the ice between the two stars following which Priyanka was cast as the leading actress of 'Bharat'.
In fact, after Arpita's recommendation of Priyanka, Salman had even gone a way ahead to introduce her as the female lead of the film on his Twitter handle. However, PC's pulling out the plug like this has left the 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' star totally baffled.
It is a known fact that Salman is very particular about commitments. And only time will tell if Salman and Arpita will continue to maintain the same bond with PC any longer. Moreover, if he will ever work with her in the future?
