Although Aditya Chopra and his team have begun pre-production for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, the leading lady has not been finalised yet.
Sonam Kapoor was being considered to play the part of the heroine opposite Shah Rukh Khan in what the grapevine claims to be the desi version of My Fair Lady.
Simran, a teenaged newcomer from Chandirgarh, was also in running for the role. According to a source, in the course of training her to face the camera, Chopra was not quite sure whether she could play the role.
Now, the two top choices for the role are Sonam and Deepika Padukone. Chopra Jr is currently engaged in planning the release of Tashan on April 25.
Meanwhile, his art directors have started building an elaborate set for the first schedule of Rab ne... at Film City.
The film's shooting will commence in May.
