New Delhi:

Salman Khan, the bhai of Bollywood isn’t always exactly the same bhai when it comes to his fellow female peers. From side-lining their interviews with his by drawing the worst-case comparisons on rape leading to a Twitter rift, Salman, has, been in the limelight for reasons not always for his promos, ads or movies but for controversies that he somewhat lit a match to.

Just ahead of the release of Bharat, the actor, caught himself in a web of internet outrage onec again after he took a dig at Priyanka Chopra for choosing to get married rather than star in ‘Bharat’, which he calls it 'the biggest film of HER life'. During a press conference, Salman Khan, according to India Today has said, "She [Priyanka Chopra], over Bharat, did choose USA in the 'nick' of time. She has worked so hard all her life, okay? And when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped that film and got married. You know, hats off! Usually, people leave their husbands for a film like this."

This remark of course, didn’t sit well with fellow stars and some have even made sure that their disapproval over Salman’s remark is being heard by taking it to social media platform. Sona Mohapatra who has in previous instances called Salman the ‘poster child of toxic masculinity’ for his ‘low brow digs’ at Priyanka. "Cus @priyankachopra has better things to do in life, real men to hang out with & more importantly, girls to inspire with her journey."

She added, “A showcase & poster child of toxic masculinity. Low brow dig at not only a woman who was not in the room but a disgusting disregard & contempt for the woman & colleague sitting next to him in the same room. Unless we call out such serial bad behaviour, nothing changes, #India.”

Bharat director Ali Abbas Zafar in an interview seems to suggest otherwise. The director added that Salman is not dragging Priyanka Chopra’s name along instead adding that Salman is known for a wicked sense of humour, which PC herself even knows, the director adds.

Katrina Kaif, who reportedly was chipped in after PC’s exit appears alongside Salman Khan in Bharat which is slated for June 5 release.
