The leggy lass has been expressing her desire to work with Sallu since quite some time, but it seems she still hasn’t got the right opportunity
There were reports that Deepika Padukone has been roped in opposite Salman Khan in Sooraj Barjatya’s next, but Deepika denied and said, “That’s not true and I have not officially met Sooraj ji.”
It’s not just Deepika who is eager to work with the Dabangg Khan. In fact, the Bigg Boss host has also expressed his desire to work with the damsel and has been seen praising her on many occasions. Deepika said it feels great. “Definitely it feels great when Salman says such good things about me because if you all know he was the one who first noticed me,” said Deepika, who made her Bollywood debut opposite Shahrukh Khan in 2007 film Om Shanti Om. “I was doing an ad with his friends in Rajasthan. So, he noticed me first of all and he was the one who offered me my first film,” she recalled.
Deepika, during her modelling days, had got an acting offer from Salman before she was chosen for Shahrukh starrer Om Shanti Om. However, the actor denied Salman’s offer as she felt she was not ready to face the camera. Now, after acting with popular actors like Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and Shahrukh, Deepika wants to work with other superstars like Salman, Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan.
“Every year I am asked this question (which Bollywood actor I would like to work with now), but I hope in the next one or two years I will get to work with Hrithik, Salman and Aamir,” Deepika, who has given four back-to-back hits this year, told reporters here at her success party. Till now I have not worked with these actors (Aamir, Salman and Hrithik),” she added.
Currently, Deepika has films like Happy New Year, Finding Fanny Fernandes and Imtiaz Ali’s untitled film in her kitty.
