Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted Kareena Kapoor to play the Heroine in his Hindi adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo And Juliet. But she opted out citing contractual differences. The director then was quoted as saying that married actresses can’t play his Juliet character.
Deepika Padukone is now signed up to play heroine opposite Ranveer Singh in Ram Leela. She is critically acclaimed for her performance in Saif Ali Khan’s Cocktail. There is a buzz that she may also star in Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express.
