Bollywood actresses Kangana Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra have been friends since they starred together in Madhur Bhandarkar’s film Fashion. However, Kangana is now upset with Priyanka for not informing about her engagement with American boyfriend Nick Jonas. At a recent fashion show, Kangana joked about Priyanka’s betrayal. DNA has quoted her saying, “Acha? Woh meri bahut achi dosh hain unhone mujhe nahi bataya toh phir main khafaa hun.(Really? She is a close friend of mine and I am upset now that she didn’t tell me about it.)”
News of the couple’s engagement was broken on Friday by US media. A tweet by Bollywood director Ali Abbas Zafar about Priyanka’s exit from his film Bharat hinted at her engagement.
Meanwhile, Ali Abbas Zafar is on a hunt for his new leading lady for Salman Khan starrer Bharat and if rumours are to be true, he has zeroed in on Katrina Kaif.
Yes yes yes ... we will announce the leading lady of Bharat soon.. We have been shooting Non stop and the simultaneously preparing for international schedules ....— ali abbas zafar (@aliabbaszafar) July 28, 2018
According to the reports in DNA, it is said, “Katrina will join the team from September onwards, and before that, she will finish all her other work commitments.” It is also being said that Katrina was the “original choice of the movie producers.”
Kangana and Peecee partied together after the former won the Best Actress National Award for ‘Queen’ and the latter’s ‘Mary Kom’ was adjudged for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment.
In fact, Kangana had also called Priyanka and cleared the air after she was quoted as saying that she deserved the awards the latter bagged at other award shows.
On the work front, Kangana Ranaut will be next seen in the film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and the trailer will be out in August. Manikarnika is slated to release on January 25, 2019.
