Salman Khan and director Sooraj Barjatya reunited after 16 years for 2015's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. The family drama shattered many box office records and with collections of Rs 208 crore, became the second highest grosser of that year after Bajrangi Bhaijaan (another Salman Khan film). PRDP also turned out to be lead actress Sonam Kapoor's biggest hit till date. But do you know Sonam was not the first choice for the film?
Yes, you read it right. Deepika Padukone was offered the lead role in the film, but due to unknown reasons, she rejected the film, which, which later went to Sonam Kapoor. Talking about PRDP, Deepika had told DNA, “See films always belong to people who do them. It doesn't matter who was offered or who didn't do it. That’s why I talk about films that I have been offered. That۪'s not what matters, what matters eventually after the film has released is who the film belongs to and it belongs to those who have been a part of it.” Interestingly, Salman and Deepika have never shared screen space but we hope the duo collaborates to deliver a blockbuster soon.
Talking about their respective schedules, Deepika might star in the sequel of xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, though the official announcement has not been made by the makers. The Dabangg Khan is currently gearing up for the release of Race 3, which is on June 15. On the other hand, Sonam Kapoor, who is currently basking in the success of Veere Di Wedding, will be next seen in Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju, which is set to hit the screens on June 29.
