Ranveer’s Loss, Deepika’s Gain

It is difficult  to say  who between  Deepika and Ranveer  is  the  bigger  boxoffice star. But  we can tell you  that Deepika’s latest much talked-about role as acid victim  Laxmi  Aggarwal in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak  happened  because of Ranveer.

 Here’s how.

 Director Meghna Gulzar actually wanted to make a male-centric film after Raazi.She  was  all set to do a  bio-pic on  Marshal General Manekshaw with Ranveer  in  the  lead. 

Says a  source close  to the development, “Meghna Gulzar had  the project scripted and ready. She  was keen onRanveer Singh to  play Manekshaw. They met, and Ranveer seemed  maha-excited. But when it came to  a narration , Ranveer  seemed  to have no time. Meghna  simply decided to move to   the next project, on acid  attack victim Laxmi Aggarwal. That’s how Deepika came into the  picture.”

Meghna intends  to  return to  her Manekshaw  bio-pic after Chhapaak . But  now the  coveted role has gone to  Vicky Kaushal who played  Alia Bhatt’s Pakistani army-husband  in  Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi.

I guess every role has its own destiny and  casting karma.
