Was Deepika Padukone the first choice for Finding Fanny Fernandes?

Well, actually no! Read on to know more about who was the film offered to before Dippy

A secret birdie has been snooping around a lot and he tells us that Deepika Padukone wasn’t the first choice for Homi Adjania’s Finding Fanny Fernandes. Wondering who the film was first offered to? Well, Sonam Kapoor was the first choice for the film. What more, even Arjun Kapoor wasn’t the first choice for the male lead and the role was first offered to Sonam Kapoor’s I Hate Luv Storys’ co-star Imran Khan. The blatant birdie adds that Sonam and Imran weren’t happy with the roles and so didn’t sign the dotted line. Apparently, the Kapoor lass thought that the role wasn’t interesting and the Khan lad felt that there was no scope to perform (like really!).

Well, with Sonam backing out, Deepika was a good replacement. Especially ‘coz she had expressed her wish to be a part of the film, when Adjania had narrated the script to her during the filming of Cocktail. So now, let’s wait and watch if Homi Adjania’s Finding Fanny Fernandes actually lacks a good role or is the film actually good.
