Deepika Padukone has inherited some great projects of late which have done wonders for her as an actress and star. However, with Shuddhi۪ and Bajirao Mastani۪ reportedly set to clash at Christmas 2015, BizAsia has learnt that the actress may have to make a tough call on which project she does.
Reportedly, Padukone was favourite for both movies which have seen changes in cast since conception. As the box office clash news hit the media, it became highly unlikely that Padukone would want both films to get conflicting verdicts at the box office purely due to their release date. A source spoke to Asian Age, Once Kareena Kapoor moved out of Shuddhi, Deepika۪s was the first name to be considered. On the other hand, post Ram-Leela, Bhansali and Deepika have formed a great rapport and she is one of the top contenders for Bhansali۪s film.
Deepika is currently shooting for Happy New Year besides also being committed to Imtiaz Ali۪s tentatively titled Window Seat. Both Karan as well as Sanjay require bulk dates from their leading ladies. One can۪t expect anything less than 100 days each, considering the scale of both the films, continued the source.
It was being said that Padukone had already chosen one project over the other but it remains to be seen whether she chooses to hold on to both projects or give her all to just the one.
