Deepika Padukone agrees to romance Salman Khan on condition


Actress Deepika Padukone will be seen romancing superstar Salman Khan in filmmaker Kabir Khan’s upcoming movie titled ‘Majhdhaar’. It is for the first time that she will be starring opposite the ‘Dabangg’ Khan in her eight-year-long Bollywood career.

However, Deepika who is one of the highest-paid actress, agreed to do the film only on a certain condition she put forth before giving green signal to the project, according to report in a leading publication.

The leggy lass apparently wanted a concrete role in the film, and unlike other Salman heroines, she won't take up a miniature role where she will be reduced to a mere prop in the film.

A source close to the movie was quoted as saying, “Deepika signed this film with Salman on a condition that Kabir Khan promised her a meaty role. She did not want a small part, which is typical for any Salman movie. She has clearly asked Kabir to be careful of her part in the film.”

Kabir Khan’s movie is slated to release around Eid, 2017.

Deepika was earlier considered to star opposite Salman in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ and even the upcoming film ‘Sultan’. But things somehow never worked out and Sonam Kapoor bagged the role in the blockbuster ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, while Anushka Sharma was chosen for ‘Sultan’.

Deepika is currently busy with her maiden Hollywood project ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ opposite action star Vin Diesel. The movie is expected to release in early 2017.
