Mumbai: Deepika Padukone couldn’t have asked for more. The Banglorean beauty has not only reunited with her ‘Om Shanti Om’ director Farah Khan but has also landed a plum role opposite the reigning superstar of Bollywood – Salman Khan.
Apparently, after being launched by Farah in OSO (2007), the leggy actress fell out with the choreographer-turned-filmmaker. It was believed that Deepika developed an attitude problem and refused to acknowledge Farah’s contribution to her overnight success.
Off late, Deepika has been desperate to mend bridges with Farah, who finally pardoned the actress and gave her lead role opposite Salman in her upcoming directorial venture.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “Deepika has it all – beauty, grace and talent. All she needs is that little push which would propel her into the big league. She got overnight stardom with ‘Om Shanti Om.’
This she consolidated with another winning performance in ‘Bachna Ae Haseenon.’ Though outwardly she remained calm, inwardly the end of her relationship changed her attitude to love and fidelity. Deepika lost a lot of professional ground because of the relationship. But she is now determined to get back where she belongs.”
It seems Farah has finally bid goodbye to SRK!
