With Rishi Kapoor currently recovering from his recent poor health, it is reported that he may get replaced in the Hindi version of Hollywood flick ‘The Intern’ with Deepika Padukone.
Deccan Chronicle reports that co-producers of the film Padukone and Sunil Khetrapal have taken a decision to re-cast Kapoor’s role.
A source told the publication, “The other obvious choice for the role was Amitabh Bachchan Saab. But Deepika has already done a fine film, Piku, with Bachchan Saab. She was very keen on working with Chintuji, whom she has known and admired for a long time. Unfortunately, with things turning out the way they have, it seems unlikely that this untried casting combination will happen.”
Kapoor’s health took a dive in January, with rumours suggesting it was connected to his cancer treatment from last year.
