Going by the recent events it wouldn't be wrong to say that there's something wrong with this pairing...
Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone are two extremely good looking stars. The duo together would make an awesome jodi and their collective star power would benefit any filmmaker's movie. Now we all know that Deepika has been openly admitting that it's her dream to romance Salman on screen and the Sultan hero too is keen on his fresh pairing with this leggy lassie. However, seems like there's some kind of a fault in their stars. We bet that sounded like a very superstitious statement, but hey we wouldn't dare make such a statement without having proof and here we have instances that prove that indeed there's something going on in the Salman-Deepika onscreen pairing.
Remember Deepika had revealed that it was not Shah Rukh Khan but Salman who offered her the first movie. The heroine felt that she wasn't Bollywood ready and hence ditched Salman at that time. Of course sometime later Deepika debuted with SRK in Om Shanti Om and it went on to be a superhit, the babe also went on feature with Shah Rukh in many films thereafter which became commercial successes. As for Salman after her debut offer there were at least three other instances where she missed her big chance to share screen space with him.
Deepika was apparently the first choice for Sonam Kapoor - Salman starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Well, she was definitely in the running, but seem like her arch rival and fashionista Sonam bagged the project. That's not all, if buzz is to be believed Deepika's busy work schedule even cost her Yash Raj Film's much awaited Salman flick - Sultan. Deepika lost this role to her beau Ranveer Singh's ex Anushka Sharma. The actress this year did not sign any Bollywood film and we hear the reason was not just her big Hollywood debut opposite Vin Diesel. Buzz was that the actress had kept her dates free in a bid to bag Salman's next film with Kabir Khan. BollywoodLife sources revealed that Deepika had even given her nod on a condition that she get a meaty role, however we now hear that the actress is out of this movie too. Since it is an Indo-China film, Salman is keen on roping in a fresh Chinese actress.
We're sure fans of the two stars must be disappointed just like us. But that brings us to the point, is the Salman - Deepika jodi jinxed? Comment in the box below...
