Director Kabir Khan was trying to cast Deepika Padukone and Salman Khan together in his movie Tubelight. But it seems that Deepika had certain demands before signing the film and Kabir was in no mood to fulfil them, which is why he replaced her with Salman's ex girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
According to a report in DNA, ''Katrina Kaif has been finalised to replace Deepika in the Kabir Khan directorial. Deepika was reportedly unhappy with her role and wanted Kabir to increase her portions in the film. But Kabir doesn't like altering his scripts according to actor's demands hence he refused to budge.''

Later, Kabir Khan approached his good friend Katrina Kaif for his film. The director is now in advanced talks with Katrina and it's almost certain that she will give her nod to the movie.
Talking about the film, Kabir Khan told a leading daily, ''Needless to say that my films always have political backdrops because these are the kind of stories that excited me. So, that's always gonna be there. As far as story goes, it is very different to what I've done so far. The film is on a territory that Salman and I have not ventured yet. So, we are excited about it."
Reportedly, Katrina Kaif is also doing Aanand L Rai's next film opposite Shahrukh Khan which goes on the floors later this year.
Well, Deepika Padukone's loss seems to be Katrina Kaif's gain.
