Deepika Padukone had a legit reason to reject Shah Rukh Khan’s next. – REVEALED! Real reason behind Deepika Padukone rejecting a Shah Rukh Khan film
Deepika Padukone was supposed to be a part of Shah Rukh Khan‘s film with Aanand L Rai and we were psyched. They look immensely good together on screen and there is something about this pairing which puts a smile on your face. But later we heard that Deepika has let the project go and that ensued a string of speculations on what could possibly be the reason behind her rejecting the offer. Now, we can tell you that the actress had no other option but to let it go.
We told you before how Mumbai Mirror had reported that Deepika had walked out of the film due to the date clash with Padmavati. A source was quoted by the daily as saying, “While Deepika was quite keen on doing the film, unfortunately, her dates were clashing with those allotted to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. Since she has already committed her dates to SLB’s historical, she has had to say no to Aanand L Rai.” However, now DNA has reported that Padmavati is not the only reason behind the actress saying no to the project. A source revealed to the daily, “Aanand wanted Deepika to do the role, which is very challenging and would have requited a lot of prep and would take more time and commitment than she was willing to give at the moment. Also, time was a problem as she is shooting for Padmavati and travelling to Cannes for her brand commitment. So she declined the part.” Fair enough!
Yes, we are disappointed a bit since we wanted to see the return of this pair on the big screen. But then we are ready to wait for Shah Rukh and Deepika to be in a film together. However, we can’t wait to see this film of Rai which has the superstar playing a dwarf. It’s unlike anything we have seen before and that has got us really excited.
