There is some bad news for Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan fans. The popular on-screen jodi that has given hits like Chennai Express, Om Shaanti Om and Happy New Year won’t be seen together in Aanand L Rai’s next.
Deepika was approached for Aanand L Rai’s next wherein SRK plays the role of a dwarf. But if latest buzz is to be believed, the 31-year-old actor has opted out of the film owing to date problems.
A source says, “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.’’
Shah Rukh plays a dwarf character in the film and hence a lot of post-production work will be needed. On the other hand, Deepika will rejoin Shahid and Ranveer for the shoot of Padmavati in the next couple of days.
