They say that one always gets what is pre-written in��one’s destiny. There is no better example of this in B-town what with actors and actresses getting lucky with roles and films which their contemporaries have decided against taking up. The latest buzz is that Deepika Padukone has landed the role that was initially offered to Kareena Kapoor in Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar’s��joint venture also��starring Emraan Hashmi.
At the time, it was reported that Kapoor hadn’t given any reason in particular for stepping away from the project but it was rumoured that she was uncomfortable at the thought of Hashmi as hero. A source close to the project revealed to Mumbai Mirror, “It is strange Kareena was not happy with her role… It’s a heroine-oriented film and Emraan is not the mainstay of the project. Deepika was so excited about her role that she agreed to it a couple of days before boarding the flight to Turkey, where she is currently shooting for Race 2”.
It is thought that Kapoor had wanted to associate herself with the project again but as Padukone had already been signed as a replacement, this was not possible. The team was also of the thinking that Padukone would do as much justice to the role as Bebo would have.
The film is being branded as an “urban take on love” and will see Akshay Roy making his directorial debut.
