Deepika to replace Kareena in Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor’s next project

Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar’s new upcoming project has been in news for various reasons and one of reasons is their hunt for the leading lady.

Buddies turned business partners Ekta and Karan first approached Kareena for the lead role starring opposite kissing star Emraan Hashmi, but Kareena refered her typical date problems and got herself outside the project.

When things didn’t worked out with Kareena the filmmakers approached Deepika Padukone for the role. But Deepika was not pretty sure about working with Emraan because she thought it would be like taking a step back for her as she is at present working with superstars like Rajinikanth in Kochadaiyaan, Shahrukh Khan inChennai Express and Ranbir Kapoor in Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani.

But when she heard that Emraan’s Jannat 2 has collected 10 crores at the box office on the first day itself, Deepika was convinced that emraan is a rising and profitable star.

If the things went in the same way, then the time is not too far when Deeps will step in Bebo’s queen of Bollywood shoes.
