Deepika Padukone Will Be Emraan Hashmi’s Leading Lady
Everyone knows that Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor have joined hands to make a film and they have zeroed on Emraan Hashmi as the male lead of the film.
However, they were having hard time to finalize their leading lady. Both of them wanted Kareena Kapoor to star in the film but the actress didn’t agree to do the film.
But it seems that everything has settled down now as Deepika Padukone has given her nod to replace Kareena Kapoor in the film.
Revealing Deepika’s presence in the film, a source close to the production house said, “It’s a heroine-oriented film and Emraan is not the mainstay of the project. Deepika was so excited about her role that she agreed to it a couple of days before boarding the flight to Turkey, where she is currently shooting for Race 2.”
The film is going to be directed by Akshay Roy and is under pre-production work. It is expected to start rolling by the end of the year.
