Deepika Padukone has starred in a number of Sanjay Leela Bhansali films and she was being considered for the forthcoming ‘Baiju Bawra’. The actress, however, is saying she will only star opposite Ranveer Singh in the film but Bhansali is thought to be more interested in casting Alia Bhatt.

A report in Bollywood Hungama suggests that Padukone is insisting that she is the perfect actress to play the female lead in ‘Baiju Bawra’ but although Bhansali is very impressed with the actress’s determination. He thinks, however, that Bhatt is the one that fits the bill.

Rumours had suggested earlier that Ranveer Singh was being considered for the male lead role but other names such as Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Ajay Devgn were also in the mix, according to rumours.
