Fawad Khan Not To Star Alongside Deepika in Sanjay Leela Bansali’s Next


Fawad Khan recently walked the ramp alongside reigning queen Deepika Padukone for Bollywood’s celebrity designer, Manish Malhotra. The couple sizzled together on the ramp. Fans across the globe loved the chemistry between the two.

Later, rounds of Fawad and Deepika starring together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next, Padmavati, made to headlines.

A source close to Khan later laid the rumors to rest: “Fawad is extremely busy with other projects in Pakistan. Also, he has signed a three-film deal with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. So obviously the actor cannot break this and work with any other director. So there is no chance of him signing Bhansali’s Padmavatiemphasized text” 

The storyline of Padmavati is based on the life of Rani of Chittor which is played by Deepika Padukone, who finds herself compulsive lover in the form of Alauddin Khilji’s played by Ranveer Singh. The lover (Alaudddin) is much smarter than Rani’s husband whose role was reportedly offered to Fawad Khan.

For Fawad, this offer is a little too huge to deny: “Bhansali wants 200 days from all his lead actors, including Ranveer Singh and Deepika. Fawad has those days to spare. In between, he has Karan Johar’s production, but it should not be a problem as KJo and Bhansali share a good equation. So they will work it out. It’s too big an offer for Fawad to pass up,” an insider told Pinkvilla a few days back.

We hope Fawad and Deepika star together in a movie someday.
