The battle, it seemed, was on between ‘Shuddhi’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ for Deepika Padukone. Reports suggested that the actress was to choose between the two films as it would have been impossible to do them both, owing to overlapping dates. However, in a recent interview, the actress seems to be leaving her options open.
Padukone was said to have made her choice in favour of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’ but when asked about it, Mumbai Mirror report her saying, “I’d love to do both films. Karan has my number, if he wants me, he’ll call. I can’t talk about a film before the producer has announced it. So it’s only fair that we wait.”
Padukone’s stance about relationships was also something she was happy to divulge in, even though she will not admit to seeing Ranveer Singh. She spoke about her past relationship with Ranbir Kapoor, “I’m not cynical about love. The equation with Ranbir is there for all to see in our recent film. There’s nothing more to say”.
Padukone is definitely on top of her game and no doubt Karan Johar will make that call if he really wants her to be a part of ‘Shuddhi’.
