It’s an A-grade casting decision, given the director and screenwriter involved. Deepika Padukone confirms, mentioning she hasn’t spoken about the film yet, Imran Khan and her will romance each other over a romantic script, written by Imtiaz Ali (
Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal
) and to be directed by Homi Adajania.
“Imtiaz thought that Homi would be the best person to direct it, which is why they formed an alliance. I am also doing a Rohit Dhawan (director David Dhawan’s son) film, a romantic comedy, which stars Akshay Kumar and John Abraham,” says Padukone.
Adajania made his directorial debut with a dark psychological thriller,
in 2006. Being his second film, would this also fall under the ‘dark’ film category? “No, it is not a dark film. It is a love story,” clarifies Padukone. Incidentally, among films she says she’d have liked to be a part of, the Imran Khan starrer,
I Hate Luv Storys
appears to top the list.
“I haven’t seen

too,” adds Padukone. Considering the media blitzkrieg over her past relationship with actor Ranbir Kapoor, Padukone dodges questions about her alleged link-up with liquor baron Vijay Mallya’s son, Siddharth.
“I was even linked to Neil (Nitin Mukesh),” she laughs. “But I like speculation, I don’t mind the rumours.” However, she does clear the air over certain rumours about her work. “I am not doing
