Salman Khan is reportedly miffed with Priyanka Chopra for suddenly stepping back from his movie Bharat.

Although director Ali Abbas Zafar announced PeeCee's ouster from the project with a positive tweet wishing her good future, the entire team of Bharat is reportedly irked with the actress for her "unprofessional" behaviour.

A report in Bollywoodlife stated that Salman is so upset with Priyanka that he has decided never to work with her again.

"This is highly unprofessional on the part of Priyanka Chopra. Everyone is highly upset with her as she has walked out last minute. The sets of the film had been erected and she was supposed to shoot for a Holi song soon. Now everyone is in a lurch. She had just now mended her relationship with Salman but now, after this, Salman has vowed to never work with her again," the entertainment portal quoted a source as saying.

The report also stated that Salman's former manager Reshma Shetty currently works for Priyanka, and she might have influenced the actress to walk out of the film. Reshma and Salman reportedly had an ugly fallout.

Another report in Mid-Day quoted the producer of Bharat expressing annoyance at the actress' deed, and also called it "unprofessional".

"Priyanka told us she had to exit due to her engagement, two days ago. It was a little unprofessional of her to do it so suddenly," Nikhil Namit, CEO, Reel Life Productions told the publication.

Priyanka is reportedly already engaged to Nick Jonas, and she stepped out of Bharat as the duo is planning to get married soon. Ali Abbas Zafar's tweet had also suggested that her reason to quit the project is her impending marriage.

"Yes Priyanka Chopra is no more part of @Bharat_TheFilm & and the reason is very very special , she told us in the Nick of time about her decision and we are very happy for her ... Team Bharat wishes @priyankachopra loads of love & happiness for life [sic]," he had tweeted.

Meanwhile, makers of Bharat are now looking for a good replacement for Priyanka, and two actresses who are being considered are Katrina Kaif and Jacqueline Fernandez.
