Deepika Padukone has been confirmed as the heroine! Earlier it was said that Kareena Kapoor was going to play the lead. The head honchos of Dharma Productions and Balaji Films were firm about their choice of hero – Emraan Hashmi – and are said to be very pleased with Deepika stepping in.
However, the transition wasn’t so smooth. Kareena Kapoor was their first choice but she had apprehensions! The gossip mills insist that Bebo wasn’t comfortable working opposite with Emraan, since he’s an actor to reckon with. She politely bowed out of the film and a source on the merger production said, “It’s strange that Kareena wasn’t happy with her role. It’s a heroine oriented film and Emraan is not the centre focus. But she said her wedding might be around the same time as the shooting starts.”
