Deepika Padukone, the actress, has made her special place in Bollywood on her own merits. Deepika has emerged as the most bankable Bollywood actress over the years. She has always prioritized the script above all other facets of the film. Deepika is clearly at the top of her career, and her celebrated filmography is proof. But what if we say that she is ruling the roost despite rejecting some really big projects.
Yes, the beautiful diva had turned down a few biggies due to scheduling conflicts and unknown reasons. Let’s take a look at the biggies Deepika had denied in the last few years.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan
Deepika’s much-loved co-star, Shah Rukh Khan, was in the lead in Yash Chopra’s last romantic saga, but she turned it down due to some unknown reasons. Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma were eventually cast as SRK’s co-stars in the film. Although SRK-Katrina Jodi worked well in the film, Deepika collaborating with Shah Rukh would have been really a treat to watch.
Any Bollywood actress would love to work with ‘Perfectionist’ Aamir Khan but Deepika Padukone reportedly had to decline the bid. Deepika had a busy schedule and had no choice but to decline the bid. Katrina Kaif was eventually cast for the part. The Aamir-Katrina starrer went on to become a box office record-breaker, making over 280 crores in India alone.
Fast And Furious 7
Deepika Padukone was approached for an appearance in the 2015 Hollywood film, Fast And Furious 7. Any other Bollywood actress would have jumped on the ship and grabbed a chance to appear in a Hollywood film. Deepika, on the other hand, had to decline the offer because she was filming Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram Leela. Later, Deepika Padukone went on to star in the 2017 Hollywood film, xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, opposite Vin Diesel.
Sultan, perhaps one of the most beloved films by viewers and reviewers alike, was turned down by Deepika Padukone. Later, Anushka Sharma came into the picture, and the audience adored her performance. Deepika has never collaborated with Salman Khan to date.
