Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan are supposed to be cast together in a new movie even as the magic of the couple in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj kal continues to enchant audiences. In Love Aajkal, the duo as a romantic couple had made a splash on the silver screen.
It is Vishal Bharadwaj who has plans to rope in both Deepika and Saif to play the lead roles in his next project. The director wants to recreate the onscreen magic that the couple is still remembered for.
A source close to the director reveals that Priyanka Chopra was supposed to be cast against Saif in the project. But the director’s plan has turned over. If the grapevine stories are to be believed, Priyanka has been a favorite of the director. For her outstanding performance in Kaminey and Saat Khoon Maaf, Vishal had signed her first. But the impression of Deepika’s performance in Love Aaj kal and Karthik Calling Karthik, is no less than the spell of Priyanka’s. Vishal has secretly approached Deepika and signed her to be heroine in his next celluloid venture. Chances are that the idea of casting them together once again will click with the audience.
