There’s perhaps hardly a soul who would turn down a film that will star the Bhaijaan of B-Town, Salman Khan! I mean, we imagine that it would be the definition of a dream Bollywood project for many!
But, there was a certain Deepika Padukone who had the fortitude of letting down a Bhai entertainer, and that too the one which turned out to be the biggest success of that year! The film we are talking about is Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo.
Yes, you read that right! Instead of Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone was the first choice for Barjatya to play the leading lady in a film which brought back him and Bhai after sixteen years. But, due to reasons that are best known to the parties involved, Deepika turned down the film.
While speaking about the same, Deepika was once quoted saying, “See films always belong to people who do them. It doesn’t matter who was offered or who didn’t do it. That’s why I talk about films that I have been offered. That۪’s not what matters, what matters eventually after the film has released is who the film belongs to and it belongs to those who have been a part of it.”
True that, Deepika!
