Deepika Padukone is indeed one of the top actress in the Hindi film industry and certainly the most promising fresh talent in Bollywood, so please do not let our headlines mislead you into believing that no actor wishes to star opposite her. It's just that Vishal Bhardwaj's in the pipe line project, featuring Deepika Padukone, has failed to commence as the hunt for a hero is still on.
Those familiar with the latest happenings in Bollywood and especially those active on Twitter will know that Deepika Padukone has signed a Vishal Bhardwaj film. This was confirmed by the actress herself on her Twitter account. There was also rumour doing the rounds that her LOVE AAJ KAL co-star Saif Ali Khan had been confirmed as the lead actor.
However, this is far from true. If buzz doing the rounds in the film circle is to be believed, no actor has yet been signed opposite Deepika. As per the grapevine, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor had been approached and even though they loved the script, but both refused, as the role that they were offered was not substantial enough to convince them to sign on the dotted line.
Well, we await eagerly to hear the official confirmation from the maverick director himself!
