Deepika Padukone is clearly on a roll.�� Even though her past few films (��Aarakshan�۪, ��Desi Boyz�۪) haven�۪t fared too well, she has an enviable line-up of films, with more and more producers lining up at her doorstep. She recently pipped Katrina Kaif ��to play the lead in ��Chennai Express�۪ (with Shah Rukh Khan) and now The Times of India reports that she will more than likely be playing the lead in Ekta Kapoor-Karan Johar�۪s venture that Kareena Kapoor turned down.
Emraan Hashmi, who�۪s on a dream run at the box office, (his recently released ‘Jannat 2’ was a big hit too), will be playing the male lead. Word was that Deepika initially wasn’t too keen on sharing screen space with the ��serial kisser�۪, but after his last film did well, she seems to have reconsidered.
Other than this Rensil D’Silva directed venture, fans can also look forward to seeing her in ��Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani�۪ (with Ranbir Kapoor) ��Race 2�۪ and ��Cocktail�۪ (with Saif Ali Khan), all of which are set to release by year end.
