The quintessential queen of Bollywood Deepika Padukone made her debut opposite the superstar Shahrukh Khan in Om Shanti Om and they have had many successful movies after it, and that’s why they are called as the one of the most popular on-screen Jodi. According to the reports of Mumbai Mirror, the actress was going to collaborate with the superstar Shahrukh Khan for the fourth time, after giving hits like Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express and Happy New Year with him for Anand L Rai’s next, but she has pulled out of it now.
Deepika Padukone is currently busy shooting for Sanjay Leela Bansali’s Padmavati with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. The actress was approached for Anand L Rai’s film with Shahrukh Khan, but she said no to the project due to date problems, reports Mumbai Mirror. According to Mumbai Mirror, the shoot for the superstar Shahrukh’s movie is expected to start soon and it will be shot for six months in which the actor is going to play the role of a dwarf for the very first time in his career. “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 Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical, she has had to say no to Aanand L Rai,” a source quoted to Mumbai Mirror. There were many rumors going that Deepika Padukone was roped to play Srk’s leading lady in Aanand L Rai’s next.
If reports are to be believed, then it is really a sad moment for those who were expecting to see the Shahrukh-Deepika Jodi again on screen. “The rescheduling of dates, multiple times of Bhansali’s film have led to a change in Deepika’s schedule as well. So, she had no other alternative but to let go of Rai’s film,” a source quoted to HT Café. Earlier, it was reported that the Aanand L Rai’s film will have two actresses apart from Deepika Padukone. Katrina Kaif is also going to play an important role in the Shahrukh’s next movie, according to reports. The shooting dates of Aanand L Rai’s film were clashing with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati for which the actress is busy in the shooting, and because of the commitment of Deepika, she decided to opt out from Srk’s film.
Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone have worked previously in movies like Chennai Express, Om Shanti Om and Happy New Year, and all the movies were huge hits. The Shahrukh-Deepika on screen Jodi has always been appreciated by the audiences and that’s why their fans were excited to see them again in Aanand L Rai’s next, but now it looks like that the Fans will have to wait a little longer to see them together on the silver screens. On the other hand, Shahrukh Khan will be seen playing the role of a dwarf in Aanand L Rai’s untitled movie which is scheduled to release on Christmas 2018.
