Deepika Padukone replaces Kareena Kapoor Khan as the female lead in the upcoming Karan Johar film Shuddhi. Reportedly, Karan Johar wants to keep this news a secret; which is justifiable considering Kareena’s recent successes have been zilch. Apparently Kareena walked out of the project when it was delayed a lot of times because of Hrithik Roshan’s health.
Kareena was supposed to play the role of Leela in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela but the role ultimately went to Deepika Padukone; who created history with her performance. She was also one of the major contenders to play the role of Mastani in Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani but a birdie tells us that Bhansali might consider his Filmfare Award winning Leela to play that part.
So why is Deepika taking over all of Kareena’s films? Tell us your opinions folks!
