Mumbai: Since heartthrobs like Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor have already turned down Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Dreams’, it seems that the filmmaker is now banking on the B-town’s leading ladies for the film. According to the latest buzz, Bhardwaj, who’s still not been able to finalise on the male starcast of ‘Dreams’, has roped in two beauties - Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra for pivotal roles.
‘Dreams’, which is said to be the remake of Leonardo Dicaprio starrer Hollywood hit ‘Inception’, was supposed to have Saif and Deepika as the lead pair. And Vishal was reportedly not too keen on repeating Priyanka Chopra with whom he has done two films consecutively – ‘Kaminey’ and ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’.
However, the director seems to have changed his mind now, as he’s signed PC once again for the film, and, at the same time, hasn’t chucked out Deepika from the project, as ‘Dreams’ needs two actresses.
On the other hand, since Saif and Shahid have walked out of the film, it seems that Vishal will have a tough time looking for a real hunk to match up to the potential of Dips and Piggy Chops.
Talking to a news daily, a source said, “There are two heroines in the film. The male lead will now be either a fresh face or a well established star.”
