Search for the leading lady

Actress Deepika Padukone has been approached for a Sooraj Barjatya film starring Salman Khan.

The superstar will be teaming up with Barjatya for a film after 14 years. Their last outing together was Hum Saath Saath Hain. “Soorajji met her (Deepika) at a party. Talks are on with her but nothing has been finalised. Many actresses are interested in this film and he is meeting them as well,” said the source.

“We have not finalised anyone yet. A lot of speculation is happening over the heroine of the film. Things will be finalised in 15 days or so,” the source said. Several names have come up for the leading lady like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Katrina Kaif, Ileana D’Cruz, Anushka Sharma, Parineeti Chopra, Nargis Fakhri and others. The yet-to-be titled film is likely to go on floors in June next year. The shooting might take place in Mumbai, Gujarat and Rajasthan. 

Meanwhile, the new year seems to be turning out well for Deepika. The actress, who gave four back-to-back hits in 2013, is likely to announce two more projects around her 28th birthday. She currently has three films – ‘Happy New Year’, ‘Finding Fanny Fernandes’ and Imtiaz Ali’s next, to look forward to next year.

“Deepika will be having special announcements around her birthday (January 5),” said a source close to the actress. The past year has proven successful for the talented young lady thanks to ‘Race 2’, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, ‘Chennai Express’ and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, all of which made it to the 100-crore club. She showcased a variety in her roles in each of these films and was lauded for her versatility.
