According to a source Priyanka Chopra’s name was suggested for Salman’s Radhe, but the actor refused.
It is very unlikely that Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra will ever be seen in a film together. In fact, one hears Salman has already ‘recommended’ (read: locked in) Katrina Kaif for his new Eid 2020 release Radhe, to be directed by Prabhudheva.
A source says, “Bhai plays a cop in the Eid 2020 release as well as in Dabangg 3. This would be back-to-back releases where Salman plays a cop. To avoid a sense of sameness, his team members suggested Priyanka Chopra, since she has no films on hand after The Sky Is Pink releases in October.”
Apparently, Salman’s reply was a vehement no. “At such short notice, the choice was between Jacqueline Fernandez and Katrina Kaif. With Jacqueline, Salman is already doing Kick 2. He might as well give Katrina the Eid gift,” says the source.
Salman and Katrina have scored three Eid hits: Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat.
