Here are 5 reasons why Deepika likely to opt for Bhansali’s Padmavati rather than Aanand Rai’s film With Shah Rukh .
- Because it offers her the author-backed central role whereas Aanand Rai’s film revolves around Shah RukhKhan’s character.
- Though she has never worked with Aanand before and would love to explore a space that Kangana Ranaut has so effectively occupied so far, her commitment to Bhansali’s vision is non-negotiable after what Ram Leela andBajirao Mastani did to her career.
- Bhansali has made it explicitly clear to Deepika that she is the first and only choice as Padmavati whereas the existence of Aanand’s film does not depend on Deepika’s presence.
- Because if Deepika agrees to do Aanand Rai’s film Kangana may accuse Deepika of muscling into her territory.The opposite—Kangana getting Bhansali’s film—is not likely to happen.
- Because in Padmavati Deepika’s co-star would be Ranveer Singh.
