Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone make a great on-screen pair and their chemistry has wooed fans more than once. After 'Om Shanti Om', 'Chennai Express', and 'Happy New Year', the two were touted to come together yet again, in Aanand L Rai's next Bollywood venture. However, a recent report cited that Deepika has opted out of the project.
“While Deepila was quite keen on doing the film, unfortunately, her dates were clashing with those allotted to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati'. Since she has already committed her dates to SLB's historical, she has had to say no to Aanand L Rai,” a source said. Shah Rukh will reportedly play the role of a dwarf for the very first time, in the movie.
