They’re both considered Bollywood’s box office favourites in their own ways, but Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone are yet to share screen space.

Some time ago, rumours had it that the two have been signed for Sooraj Barjatya’s next film. However, Deepika denied the news. But she maintained — like she has several times in the past — that she is interested in working with Salman.

In a previous interview, she had even said, “I want to work in a romantic film with him; a nice love story. I have always shown my fondness for him. He comes across as a very romantic person and that will reflect on screen.”

When we informed the Dabangg (2010) actor of Deepika’s keenness, he jokingly said, “Really? Then I think we should re-launch her.”

Deepika made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om (2007), but it was Salman who first spotted her and even offered her a film. But she turned down the offer back then. “I was too young and unclear about which profession to choose at that time. A lot of people thought I was foolish to let it go, but I guess it was destined. But I am glad that I didn’t do the film, because I know I wouldn’t have done justice to it and to our pairing then,” Deepika had said.
