On Friday, the news of Priyanka quitting Salman Khan's Bharat and the reports of her engagement to Nick Jonas broke in quick succession. In his farewell tweet (of sorts) for Priyanka, Bharat director Ali Abbas Zafar hinted that Priyanka's exit could have a Nick Jonas connection, after which People Magazine and E! reported that Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have been engaged for over a week - Nick reportedly proposed to her on her birthday (July 18).

A day later, several web portals reported that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are getting married in September. However, when Kangana was asked if Priyanka confirmed the wedding date to her, the Rangoon actress said, "Not to me."
The rumoured Jonas-Chopra wedding is not the only reason cited for Priyanka's exit from Salman Khan's film. On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Priyanka Chopra has signed a Hollywood project opposite Jurassic World star Chris Pratt. Priyanka is reportedly onboard Universal Pictures' Cowboy Ninja Viking. Chris Pratt shot to fame after starring in the Guardians Of The Galaxy film series, in which he played the role of Peter Quill aka Star-Lord.
Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra is returning to Bollywood with Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink.
