Deepika Padukone to Opt Out of Sooraj Barjatya's Next With Salman Khan?

Industrywalla , 27 Jan 2014

Uh oh – it looks like Deepika Padukone is in a bit of a fix these days! While she is currently being awarded for her performances in 2013, Industrywalla tells us that the actress in a dilemma about two of her upcoming films, since she is having a date clash.

Industrywalla says: The casting for Sooraj Barjatya‘s film with Salman Khan had been a big question for some time previously, but over time it became increasingly clear that the Rajshri team was keen on roping Deepika Padukone in. Sadly, DPad has reached a situation where she is not sure whether she will do the film. The dates that Rajshri wants are clashing with the dates that she was allocating for Imtiaz Ali‘s tentatively titled Window Seat opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Now the big question is which of these films Deepika will eventually pick!

I am told that the actress is leaning towards Imtiaz’s Window Seat, and she may pick that film if it comes down to choosing between the two. After Love Aaj Kal, Deepika has been wanting to work with Imtiaz Ali again, and she is hesitant about giving up this opportunity now that she has it.

On the flip side, she has not worked with Sooraj Barjatya (and his film is supposed to be a big one) so no one would blame her if she decided to do that film instead. As of now, though, she is more inclined to go with Window Seat. However, you never know… perhaps all parties involved can work out something so that the schedules don’t clash and Deepika is able to star in both these flicks.

What are your thoughts? Do you think Deepika should pick the director she’s already worked with, or would it be better for her to do a film with someone she hasn’t worked with yet?
