One such interesting story is about our Bollywood Bhaijaan, Salman Khan, and our very own ‘desi star in the west’, Priyanka Chopra.

As much as we are excited about the movie and love this sweet tweet exchange between the two, we cannot forget that this is their first film together after 12 long years. What can be the reason for this gap of 12 years? Let’s take a look at some of the news reports that may help us get a track of events.
Even though we have loved Salman and Priyanka’s chemistry in ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’, ‘Salaam-e- Ishq’ and ‘God Tussi Great Ho’, we know that both of them were never really best friends. We have heard from the sources many times that both of them always have had some personal differences with each other.
It all started in 2004 when they both started having some really disturbing differences on the sets of ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’. After which it was said that they had even stopped talking or having any contact between them.
Later in 2007, there was news that Salman Khan wanted to replace Priyanka Chopra by Katrina Kaif in one of their movies.
This episode of 2007 clearly had strong effect on their friendship as after this, both of them avoided commenting on anything related to the other. In 2009, Chopra had even rejected a Sohail Khan film, ‘Main Aur Mrs. Khanna’.
It was also heard that Priyanka had also rejected a Salman Khan film ‘London Dreams’ in the same year. But the actress later informed that the makers were only talking to her secretly about the project but never approached her regarding it further.
In 2011, the actress was also left out from the guest list of one of the parties by Sohail Khan at the time of an international award show.
2011 was also the year which made a headline that read, “Salman Khan takes an open dig at actress Priyanka Chopra,” when Salman Khan had said that Kareena Kapoor is the original desi girl.
We can see that Salman and Priyanka’s relations have seen many ups and downs. But now it seems they have decided to let the past be and move on. Every fan of their is excited for this onscreen reunion, we too hope the best for them and hope for them to once again create their magic and win all the hearts making us forget the bygones.
