Did Deepika Padukone opt for Karan Johar`s next over Bhansali`s?

New Delhi: Deepika Padukone has reportedly turned down Sanjay Leela Bhansali `s next `Bajirao Mastani` because she had given her nod to Karan Johar`s upcoming film `Shuddhi`.

A source close to the actress said that the dates Bhansali wanted from Padukone have been allotted to Johar`s film and that is why the actress is not in a position to play Mastani in the Bhansali`s film.

An insider added that a look test was also done, but due to her date issues, the 28-year-old actress could not sign on the dotted line.
