Deepika Padukone is working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the third time in the upcoming ‘Padmavati’, after his ‘Bajirao Mastani’ in 2015, but it looks like audiences will not be able to see them create the same magic for Bhansali’s next, ‘Gustakhiyan’.
Pinkvilla reports that Padukone was surprised to hear the question of her being in the film, in which she answered with an “No”. ‘Gustakhiyan’ will be based on the life of poet Sahir Ludhianvi, and it has not found its hero yet either. There were a lot of name dropping on the same, such as Irrfan Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, and Salman Khan, but none have been confirmed.
Meanwhile, Padukone will be seen alongside Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in ‘Padmavati’, slated to hit theatres on 1st December.
