According to Bollywood sources it was speculated that Deepika Padukone was going to be part of Aanand L Rai’s film where Shah Rukh Khan plays a dwarf. It was a casting coup of sorts, what with the other heroine being Katrina Kaif. But prior commitment to Sanjay Leela Bhansali kind of put a stop to that. As per latest report, we hear that she might be part of the film after all.
According to sources recently SRK shared a picture on his social media pages posing with Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Karishma Kapoor, Sridevi and Alia Bhatt and created a fan frenzy when it was revealed the photo was from the set of the Aanand L Rai film.
Moreover as per a leading daily, one more actress will have a guest
appearance in the film and it's none other than Deepika Padukone. Talking about
it, a source was quoted thus by a daily, "While Katrina and Anushka have
been shooting for the film, Deepika shot for the guest appearance recently."
