Deepika upset over Katrina’s casting opposite SRK in Aanand L. Rai’s next
As per earlier reports, Deepika Padukone was to be cast opposite King Khan in Aanand L Rai’s next, where the superstar plays a dwarf. But later it was known that Deepika had rejected the film owing to her Hollywood project and unavailability of dates due to the same.
After this incident, Aanand had started a frantic search for the leading lady of his next venture. There was news that stated that he has finally decided on Katrina Kaif for the role. Thus, Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina would share screen space after four years, their last movie being Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
Buzz is that when Deepika Padukone got to know this news she made a few panicky calls to Rai, to confirm the news. Apparently she told him that he should have reconsidered her and asked her again as she was done with her shoot of her Hollywood outing and Aanand’s film hasn’t gone on floors yet. Even though she now has dates, Aanand is in a difficult spot as he is already in talks with Kaif. This one just added a feature to the rivalry hat of Deepika and Katrina. Both the divas share a rough pitch not just professionally but also personally; for reasons best known to all.
Sorry Deepika, you may be the ‘queen’ (Padmavati) but not of King Khan!
