Deepika and Salman Khan Still Not Together



Salman  Khan and  Sanjay Leela Bhansali are all set  to  come  together   again  after  the ill-fated Saawariya  in  2007 . In Hum…Dil De Chuke Sanam and  Saawariya  Salman’ didn’t get the  girl at the end. In  Hum…  Ajay Devganwalked away with  Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

      Hopefully this time in Bhansali’s Inshallah Salman  would  get the girl. But it won’t to be Bhansali’s blue-eyed girl Deepika Padukone but Alia Bhatt.

Sources say Bhansali was keen to cast Khan and Padukone in Inshallah.  But Deepika’s dates  didn’t  work out.

It must be  remembered  that   Deepika’s  pairing with  Salman is  an occurrence  waiting to happen  for a very long time. The two were supposed to come together  in  Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick   5 years  ago. But Deepika opted out, as there  wasn’t enough for her  to do in the film.This “snub”   angered  Salman and nothing tangible was  heard about this much-desired pairing after that.

It is significant,  if somewhat  inevitable, that Bhansali  should be the one who tried  to bring this untried pair to the screen. The director’s other favourite actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan  was keen to  feature in his next.With Salman,  with whom she vowed  never to act after Hum…Dil De Chuke Sanam, cast in the lead as Bhansali’s next hero, the heroine had  to be  anyone but Aishwarya.

And  who better than Deepika with whom Bhansali has created magic thrice over in  Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani andPadmaavat. He has worked the same  number of times with Salman in Khamoshi: The Musical, Hum…Dil De ChukeSanam and Saawariya.

Sadlythe pair didn’t work  out again.  Better luck next time.
