There were many reports stating that Deepika Padukone is being considered for the role of Shahrukh Khan's lady love in Aanand L. Rai's next.
But it seems that Deepika Padukone is not interested to sign the film. The leggy lass has rejected Shahrukh Khan's dwarf film for this shocking reason. More details below.
Here's What Happened...
A source revealed to Mumbai Mirror, "While Deepika Padukone was quite keen on doing the film, unfortunately, her dates were clashing with those allotted to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati."
She Said No To Aanand L. Rai
''Since she has already committed her dates to SLB's historical, she has had to say no to Aanand L. Rai."
Why She Said 'Yes' Earlier?
It is being said that the shooting of Padmavati would have been completed on time but the attack on the sets of Padmavati in Kolhapur has delayed the film. Hence, the shooting has been delayed.
The Rescheduling Of Dates
Another source revealed to HT Cafe, "The rescheduling of dates multiple times of Bhansali's film has led to a change in Deepika's schedule as well. So, she had no other alternative but to let go of Rai's film."
Is Shahrukh Khan Upset With This?
However, the big question is will Shahrukh Khan take this rejection in a positive way? We all know that Salman Khan was very upset with Deepika when she rejected his films. Hmmm...not a good career move, we say...
Katrina Kaif Still A Part Of The Film
If reports are to be believed, Katrina Kaif is still a part of this Shahrukh Khan starrer.
The Director Has Already Started Looking For Deepika's Replacement
Meanwhile, Aanand L. Rai has already started looking for a replacement and will start shooting for the movie soon.
Shahrukh Will Play A Dwarf In The Movie
Those who have come late, Shahrukh Khan will be seen in a completely new avatar in Aanand L. Rai's film as the superstar will play the role of a dwarf.
Well, do you think Deepika Padukone has done the right thing by saying 'no' to a Shahrukh Khan movie, especially when she needs her number one position back in Bollywood?
