This rumour upset her fans who were excited about seeing Chopra in a Hindi film.
Reports suggested that the international star wanted to spend as much time as possible with
her baby and hence had made the decision to quit the film which also stars Alia Bhatt and
Katrina Kaif in key roles.

A source had earlier informed that the baby arrived 12 weeks early
at a Southern California hospital. The baby will remain at the hospital until she is healthy
enough to return home to the couple. Citing that the baby was initially expected to arrive in
April, Chopra had cleared her work schedule accordingly. Now with the early arrival, there
might be some changes to her work schedule. Reports, hence, suggested that she might opt
out of Farhan Akhtar’s film.

However, you can breathe a sigh of relief as these rumours are just that. A source
close to that actor clarified that this information wasn’t true. Talking to
ETimes, the source revealed, “The rumours about Priyanka Chopra opting out of the film are
completely baseless and untrue.”

On January 22, 2022, Chopra and Jonas took to social media to announce the birth of their child. It read, “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much.”
