Deepika Padukone to choose film with Ranbir Kapoor over Satte Pe Satta? EXCLUSIVE

The Satte Pe Saata remake is a hot topic right now. According to buzz, Deepika Padukone is roped in opposite Hrithik Roshan for this Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan collaboration. Since she has worked with both of them in the past, it comes as no surprise. However, Deepika has been seen making rounds of director Luv Ranjan’s office, along with Ranbir Kapoor since a few days. While everyone is wondering if she is signing a film with the director, Phillumwale has learnt that she is indeed in discussions for a film. The project brings her back with Ranbir and also stars Ajay Devgn. This is the same film that was announced early 2018 starring Ajay and Ranbir as a father-son duo and Deepika Padukone as their common love interest.

On one hand while she gets flak for her meetings with a director previously accused in the Me Too controversy, she has decided to go ahead. She has loved the story and has given her dates for the same. Given the scenario, she may not be able to be available for Satte Pe Satta. In such a situation, Rohit and Farah are said to be considering another common favourite, Katrina Kaif.


Interestingly, Nushrat Bharucha was Luv Ranjan’s first choice for the untitled film, which is being called as a ‘complicated love story’. But Ranbir was rooting for his girlfriend Alia Bhatt. A lot of discussions and debates ensued and at one time, there was a possibility of the film being shelved. However, better sense prevailed on both sides. The conclusion reached was that Alia would look too young to be Ajay Devgan’s love interest and hence hunt for another name began. Deepika Padukone eventually came on board.

Now that she is free from her commitments for Chhapaak and 83 with Ranveer Singh and Kabir Khan, she is free to start on the Luv Ranjan film. Ranbir too is done shooting for Brahmastra and there is some time before he gets on the sets of Shamshera.
