Priyanka Chopra's return to Bollywood is on hold for now after her last minute exit from Bharat.

Her decision was met with mixed emotions from the film's team but not all hope is lost as Katrina Kaif has been roped in to replace the Quantico star, reported Mumbai Mirror.

Director Ali Abbas Zafar told the publication, "I am extremely excited to work with Katrina and Salman again. We have had exciting collaborations in the past. Katrina came on board in the 'Nick' of time for this project."

Rumours are rife that Priyanka is set to be engaged to Nick Jonas and was forced to drop out of the film. This was fueled by the director's tweet late last week following PeeCee's exit.

Now that Kat has taken over, she will be seen alongside Salman who she has worked with on multiple projects, as well as Tabu and Disha Patani.

Bharat is an official adaptation of 2014 South Korean film Ode to My Father. It will release on Eid 2019.
