After much ado, Deepika Padukone has been finally signed as Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s desi Juliet in his upcoming film. The actress is currently resting at her Bangalore home, after suffering from sheer exhaustion after her recent shoot schedule.
However, looks like her stress levels might soar further, thanks to her plate full of work. What with SLB’S epic romance, Ayaan Mukerji’s forthcoming film with Ranbir Kapoor and Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express with SRK, Dippy may have a mammoth task ahead, juggling her date diary.
Looks like Dippy might have to request her directors to shuffle their dates to accommodate her choc-a-bloc date schedule. Sources close to Deepika confirm that her dates are indeed being worked out, so that her film schedules don’t clash.
Rohit Shetty's 'Chennai Express' opposite Shah Rukh Khan has been preponed to September end, as SRK wants to cheer his IPL team at the Champions League. The actress plays a south Indian girl romancing a Punjabi boy on a train. Some bit parts are also left for Abbas-Mustan’s thriller next.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
With Ayaan Mukerji’s film yet to complete, Deepika is still expected to give extra dates for the project. She plays a sweet girl-next-door in this film.
Our source close to SLB says, “When Kareena Kapoor was to play Juliet, the film was meant to roll in August. Then, Bebo was to go on to promote Madhur Bhandarkar’s next, and return by the end of October. The construction of the set has already begun and will be completed very soon.”
