After last year’s successful run, Deepika Padukone has one more reason to celebrate. Her dream of working with Salman Khan will soon become a reality!
A Bollywoodlife report claimed on Thursday that the Piku star has signed on an action-thriller directed by Kabir Khan and co-starring Salman. “Salman has signed his next after Sultan, and will be seen opposite Deepika,” it quoted a source as saying.
When Hindustan Times earlier asked Deepika about working with the Dabbang star, she had replied, “I haven’t been officially offered any film. But I want to work with Salman soon, hopefully.”
At present, Deepika is busy with shooting for her Hollywood debut opposite Vin Diesel in a movie titled xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage. Sources say she hadn’t accepted any Bollywood movie after Bajirao Mastani.
Salman, who is currently busy with Sultan, had not undertaken any new projects either. Previous collaborations between Salman and Kabir had resulted in hits like Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Sultan, also starring Anushka Sharma, will hit the theatres on Eid – taking on Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees.
Hindustan Times could not independently verify the report.
