Ranveer is playing Deepika's dead husband in Homi Adjania's film. There were reports that it was Deepika who convinced Ranveer to do the cameo in the film. When asked about it, Deepika said, "I don't have a say in casting." She rather asked her co-star in the film, Arjun Kapoor to answer it.
"You ask him (Arjun) this question and not me. He is the spokesperson," she said. To this Arjun said, "It's good when actors do cameo without thinking too much. Homi told him (Ranveer) about the friendly appearance. I think he liked the way Homi narrated the part. He was happy to do it (cameo)," Arjun said.
Homi also said that "Deepika had no idea about Ranveer's cameo. Ranveer and I were chatting about this film and the idea of this cameo role came up. He liked it and agreed to do it. He came on the sets...we had fun doing it," the director said. Apparently, Ranveer did the cameo free of cost.
The film also stars Dimple Kapadia, Naseeruddin Shah and Pankaj Kapur. Ranveer and Deepika, who created a sizzling chemistry on screen with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's epic romance drama 'Ram Leela', will also be seen in Bhansali's much talked about film 'Bajirao Mastani'.
