Aanand L Rai’s ambitious dwarf film with Shah Rukh Khan has been making headlines for a while now. While we know that the film will have two leading ladies, the speculation about who will essay the roles is never-ending. According to a report in DNA, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif have been finalised to star opposite SRK.
When Ranbir Kapoor reportedly cheated on then-girlfriend Deepika with Katrina, he set the stage for the cold war between the two. Katrina was asked on Koffee With Karan if she was friends with Deepika, and her only response was an awkward silence. The two also go out of their way to ensure that they do not come face-to-face at public events.
“Aanand has been in talks with a few actresses, and has finally sealed the deal with DP and Kat. While there were reports about Deepika replacing Katrina and vice-versa, the film will have both the heroines working together for the first time,” DNA s a source as confirming.
Adding that they both are reluctant to let go of a plum project due to personal differences, the source said, “Both the roles in Aanand’s film are extremely strong and totally different from the other. The team is planning a big announcement soon. The modalities are being worked out currently.”
