Deepika Padukone ditches Salman Khan for SRK

BizAsia reported last week that the beautiful Deepika Padukone had been approached by Sajid Nadiadwala to be a part of a special song opposite Salman Khan in the forthcoming ‘Kick’. Whilst at that time there was speculation as to what the actress would do, it seems she made her decision in favour of Shah Rukh Khan.

Padukone would reportedly have to take some time out of shooting for Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ which sees her opposite Shah Rukh Khan. No doubt the choice she had to make was a difficult one as she’s expressed on many an occasion that she wanted to work with Salman. However, it seems she has chosen to stick to being loyal to Shah Rukh, ultimately deciding not to be a part of the song in ‘Kick’.

Padukone was favourite for Sooraj Barjatya’s next opposite Salman too but Sonam Kapoor ended up bagging the role. One wonders when this jodi will be seen on the screen for the first time.
