Mumbai: Buzz has it that dimpled beauty Deepika Padukone might replace ravishing Priyanka Chopra in Siddharth Anand’s next, which is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s acclaimed novel ‘Two States – The Story of My marriage’.

Reportedly, Saif Ali Khan will be playing the Punjabi boy while Priyanka Chopra will play the lass from south. But a source close to producer Sajid Nadiadwala revealed to a news daily, “Even before the movie goes on set, there is news that Sajid and Siddharth feel that Deepika is a better choice for the role of a south Indian than Priyanka is”.

“Since everything is very tentative right now, none of the principal star cast nor the makers wish to go on record. But it may well happen that the ‘Love Aaj Kal’ pair of Saif and Deepika may return in this contemporary take of ‘Ek Duje Ke Liye’”, the source added.

Now what can Piggy Chops do if she has Punjabi blood in her veins! It seems real life south Indian Deepika might bag the role, for she might just fit the bill.
