Deepika Padukone, who was distinguished in a totally deglam avatar during her facial expression test for Majid’s movie earlier. Reportedly, rejected for the picture.
Majid Majidi, the renowned Iranian filmmaker, turned quite a few heads when he showed up for a secret look test with Deepika Padukone in Mumbai, a few months ago.
The actress, who got her international debut with xXx: Return of Xander Cage this year, and currently busy with the promotion, were almost confirmed for Majid’s movie Floating Gardens, until today.
Arranged in a washed out and the oversized red curtain and green Salwar, Deepika was seen getting into a complete deglam avatar, rendering her virtually unrecognizable during the trial.
We’ve now learnt from a dependable source that Dippy was rejected later that first trial. Says the source, “Deepika gave her look test for the movie a few months back in Dhobi Talao in Mumbai. But afterwards, things didn’t run out between her and the director. The actress was eventually left out for the role.”
Still, the makers have confirmed that Ishaan Khattar, Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother, will be arriving at his introduction with this film.
While the youngster was rumoured to make his debut with Karan Johar’s Hindi remake of Sairat, the news has been rubbished. If she were to be selected, Deepika would have been seen playing Ishaan’s on-screen sister.
