Deepika Padukone refuses item song in 'Kanchi'

Deepika Padukone has been approached by Rishi Kapoor to do an item song in Subhash Ghai’ upcoming film, ‘Kanchi’ but the long legged beauty turned down the offer. The report was revealed by none other than the maker of ‘Kanchi’ Subhash Ghai. While speaking to Stardust magazine, Subhash Ghai said that Rishi Kapoor approached Deepika to do an item number in ‘Kanchi’ which the actress rejected.

He said, "Rishi Kapoor insisted on Deepika Padukone. I thought the song should be picturised on her. I refused but he dialled her thinking I can't get her, and put her on me. She also didn't know what to say. So she spoke to me and asked for time to think. She turned it down saying she has been offered many such songs and if she says yes to me, she has to say yes to others too. I felt so relieved! Main darr raha tha ki agar woh haan kar degi to main mar jaoonga. Kanchi ke aage agar Deepika khadi hui to mere heroine ko kaun dekhega?"

If we recalled, Deepika Padukone dated Rishi Kapoor’s son Ranbir Kapoor at one point of time and after dating for a year, they parted ways. It was reported that Ranbir Kapoor dumped Deepika for Katrina Kaif and the later even lashes out at the Kapoor lad on Karan Johar’s chat show, ‘Koffee With Karan’ when Dippy appeared with Sonam Kapoor. Both the beauties had a big laugh at Ranbir which Rishi Kapoor did not like and later took a dig at Deepika and Sonam.
