Confirmed: Deepika Padukone opposite Salman Khan in ‘Tubelight’


Finally, Mastani and Sultan paired up together. Yes, we are talking about two reigning stars of Bollywood Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone. The beautiful couple is coming together for Kabir Khan’s ‘Tubelight’. Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone were the two hot contenders for ‘Tubelight’ but considering that audience wants to watch a new pair opposite the 'Sultan' star, Salman Khan suggested Deepika’s name.

"While Kabir would like to cast his pal Katrina—who incidentally is also Salman's pal—whomKabir has worked with earlier in New York, Ek Tha Tiger and Phantom, Salman has been getting feelers from Deepika. He feels an untried fresh pair at this point in time would make more sense," Subhash K Jha quoted a source as saying.

The report further stated that Deepika Padukone will be joining the cast of ‘Tubelight’ in Ladakh to start the 80-day shoot.

On Monday, Kabir shared the good news with a beautiful picture of Ladak. He wrote@"So here we are... It all begins on the 28th... #Tubelight @BeingSalmanKhan," he tweeted with a photo.

Salman and Deepika would definitely make an interesting pairing. Salman Khan has worked with Kabir Khan before in 'Ek Tha Tiger' while Deepika is working with the filmmaker for the first time.
