Will Deepika Padukone risk her dosti with Shahrukh Khan to work with Salman Khan?

It’s a well known fact that Dippy shares a special bond with the King Khan. But at the same time, the dimpled actor also wants to work with Salman, she says. That wish could soon come true…

The rivalry between Shahrukh Khan and Salman’s Khan is a known fact. But Ram-Leela star Deepika Padukone isn’t affected by the stormy equation between the Khans, or so it seems. We hear that Ms Padukone will star opposite the bhai of Bollywood in Sooraj Barjatya’s next, titled Bade Bhaiya. While there has been no official confirmation about the leading lady for this one, we certainly hope that DP bags the role. After all, it would be maha interesting to see this hatke jodi on the big screen, never mind that she is so much taller and younger than he is – SRK was also that way and Chennai Express did fabulously well, remember? And both Dippy and Sallu have a recently dhamaakedar box office record, so the makers of anything they do together don’t have to worry about minting money, hai na?

But we wonder what will happen to the pukka SRK-Deepika friendship. Nothing, we guess. Hasn’t Katrina Kaif worked with both the superstars and maintained a good rapport with each of them? Even Kareena Kapoor Khan has managed to do the same. If they can, we don’t see any reason why Deepika can’t. After all, the Cocktail babe shares great bond with ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor even with rumoured current interest Ranveer Singh lurking in the background, so a balancing act shouldn’t be a problem for our fave heroine!
