Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are undeniably the hottest pair in Bollywood now. Their off-screen chemistry is a matter of great speculation and filmmakers want to cash in on it. Currently, both Karan Johar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali want this ‘it’ pair for their respective films, but do Ranveer and Deepika have the time?
Both the actors are said to be in a fix over choosing between Karan Johar’s Shuddhi and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. Incidentally, Karan and Sanjay have announced the same release dates for their films, but neither has confirmed the cast.
Ranveer Singh, who has returned from Delhi after completing a schedule for his film Kill Dil, has had several round of talks with both Karan Johar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
While Sanjay will start the shooting of his film from November, Shuddhi will also go on the floors around same time. “This means that if Ranveer commits to doing 'Shuddhi', he will not be able to shoot for 'Bajirao Mastani'. Besides, he is required to shave off his head for the latter film,” a source is quoted as saying.
Simultaneously, Deepika Padukone is facing the same dilemma. Though there are reports that she has said no to Bajirao Mastani for Shuddhi, sources claim that Sanjay doesn’t want to see anyone but her as Mastani in his movie.
