Bollywood star Deepika Padukone has bagged a role opposite Salman Khan with Farah Khan as director, says a Bollywood report.
The film will go on floors next year. Farah denied having cast anyone at the moment, but admitted that she is almost done with the script.
While sources from the industry confirmed Deepika’s presence in the Farah Khan venture, the actress herself chose not to reply.
Deepika after being launched by Farah Khan in the 2007 hit Om Shanti Om, fell out with the filmmaker. The actress had apparently developed an attitude and refused to acknowledge the filmmaker’s contribution in her instant stardom. Determined to mend bridges, Dippy has been sending Farah’s prawn curry to the filmmaker’s home. And the seafood seems to have worked,, says the report.
Farah seems to have forgiven the actress’ earlier conduct.
Looks like Deepika seems to be getting all that she ever asked for. The actress, who in a recent interview mentioned that she would love to work with her ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, got her wish fulfilled in the form of Ayaan Mukerji’s forthcoming film.
The project, which was initially offered to Katrina Kaif, fell on Dippy’s lap after the former refused due to date problems.
The report quoted a source: “Deepika has it all – beauty, grace and talent. All she needs is that little push which would propel her into the big league. She got overnight stardom with Om Shanti Om. This she consolidated with another winning performance in Bachna Ae Haseenon. Thought outwardly she remained calm, inwardly, the end of her relationship changed her attitude to love and fidelity. Deepika lost a lot of professional ground because of the relationship. But she is now determined to get back where she belongs.”
