Lajmi was shocked when Deepika's secretary told her that she would not do the film owing to date problem. “Lajmi called up Deepika"s secretary who told her in the first call that Deepika won"t do the film since she had no dates. Lajmi was willing to wait till Deepika had dates but was shocked at her secretary"s refusal," Mumbai Mirror quoted a source as saying.
What shocked the director even further was because the actress turned down her offer even without reading her script. “I was ready to wait till Deepika was free. It is sad that today"s heroines are busy only in image-building exercises. They forget that it is the medium of cinema and nothing else that makes them popular," Lajmi said.
Well, we know that Deepika is busy like any other actor in Bollywood but she should have at least find time to read scripts even if she has her dates charted out. After all, she hunted for offers at one point of time!
