Deepika to replace Priyanka in ‘Two States’

The ‘Love Aaj Kal’ pair Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan might be back in action. Report is doing the rounds that Deepika Padukone might be replacing Priyanka Chopra in Siddharth Anand’s next, which is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s acclaimed novel ‘Two States’.

Though Priyanka Chopra is also in the card, Deepika Padukone is considered as the most strongest contender for the female lead.

A source close to producer reveals, “Even before the movie goes on set, there is news that producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director Siddharth feel that Deepika Padukone is a better choice for the role of a South Indian than Priyanka is”.

“Since everything is very tentative right now, none of the principal star cast nor the makers wish to go on record. But it may well happen that the Love Aaj Kal pair of Saif and Deepika may return in this contemporary take of ‘Ek Duje Ke Liye’”, the source added.
