|Has Deepika Padukone irked Salman Khan, Rajinikanth and Karan Johar! That’s the buzz afloat in tinsel ville.
Deepika Padukone may have played her cards well over the last few years, and the results are for everyone to see. The current reigning queen of Bollywood has emerged as the clear favourite of all, and that also means she can’t say yes to every project coming her way, and this has apparently miffed biggies like Salman Khan, Rajinikanth and Karan Johar.
It’s learnt that Deepika is not happy with Rajinikanth and his daughter Soundarya R Ashwin for not portraying her role well in Kochadaiiyaan, and that was the reason why she stayed away from promotional activities. In turn, her pricey act didn’t go down well with the superstar and his daughter.
On the other hand, Salman Khan too is quite displeased with the actress as she refused to do Sooraj Barjatya's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo opposite him, claim sources. The actress has also turned down the offer to do an item song in his upcoming movie Kick.

Moreover, Deepika Padukone was also the top contender to bag Shuddhi after Kareena Kapoor walked out of the film. But Deeps said no to Karan Johar after showing interest in the movie initially. In fact, both Ranveer Singh and Deepika chose Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani over Shuddhi.
She may have declined good projects by some biggies, but Deepika has got a few good projects lined up including Imtiaz Ali’s next with Ranbir Kapoor. It’s obvious that the actress is eager to do more performance-oriented movies to prove her mettle.
