Deepika Padukone made her debut opposite Shahrukh Khan. Even recently, she delivered a Rs. 200 crore hit, Chennai Express with SRK and we’ll also get to see the same pairing in Farah Khan’s Happy New Year. While DP has acted opposite King Khan and is known to share a good rapport with him, the pretty actor has not once shared screen space with Salman Khan. Recently, rumours were rife that Dippy will be seen opposite Salman Khan in Sooraj Barjatya’s next. However, she has denied such reports and told a popular daily, “I haven’t been approached or met Soorajji, neither have I met Salman recently.”
While the leggy lass won’t be seen in Salman’s next, she really looks forward to work with the Dabangg dude. She said, “I am really looking forward to doing something with Salman because I feel it’s overdue.” This dimpled beauty was initially supposed to debut opposite Sallu but that never materialized and since then her luck to work with him has been jinxed. So, no wonder the babe is looking forward to be casted opposite him. We wonder if working with Dabangg Khan will spoil her equation with King Khan. Deepika doesn’t feel anything like this is likely to happen and says, “Salman and Shahrukh are fond of me. I don’t think one would have an issue if I worked with the other.” Well then, after hearing all this from the horses’ mouth, let’s put a rest to all rumours that suggest otherwise. While we are disappointed that DP won’t be seen opposite Salman in Sooraj Barjatya’s next, we can at least hope to see her opposite him in the future. And that though without spoiling her bond with SRK… Fingers crossed and let’s hope Deepika-Salman share screen space soon!
