Aanand L Rai’s next big ambitious project with Shah Rukh Khan is clearly a certainty now. As of now, the Tanu Weds Manu director is on a recce in London. But, there lies a MAJOR speed bump that Aanand L Rai doesn’t know how to cross over.
The first leading lady which has been finalized for this film was Deepika Padukone. But here’s the interesting part. In order to pull off the ultimate casting coup, Katrina Kaif too was sent the script and took a long time before agreeing to play leading lady #2.
But, she made it clear that she will not be comfortable working with Deepika Padukone.
This has put Aanand L Rai in a spot. Since both the roles are tailor made for Deepika and Katrina.
Now, it’s obvious that the reason behind the sour equation between the two is Ranbir Kapoor.
The only way out that Aanand L Rai thinks is to replace Deepika Padukone with Anushka Sharma. Who would have ever thought that casting leading ladies for a film will be a trickier job than having SRK on board?
We wish that Kat and Deepika bury the hatchet for this film at least. What a treat it would be for us!
