Mumbai: Well, we must say that Deepika Padukone is one of the luckiest actresses in the filmdom. Believe it or not, but Dips may soon have a chance to proclaim that none other than Salman Khan is her bodyguard!

According to the latest buzz, Salman may turn the bodyguard of Deepika in an upcoming flick, starring the two in lead roles. Reports reveal that the Hindi remake of the South Indian director Siddique’s Malayalam film ‘Bodyguard’, will have Deepika opposite the macho guy Salman.

Our source reveals that a lot of filmmakers had approached Siddique to get the rights for the movie’s Hindi remake, but only Atul Agnihotri could manage to convince the former for the same. Siddique will take up the role of the director and writer in the Hindi version after completing the Tamil.

Grapevine has it that the Tamil version of the film stars Asin Thottumkal and the South superstar Vijay.

Nevertheless, while Salman has already been signed for playing the lead role in the Hindi remake of the flick, Deepika is not sure yet. However, filmmaker Atul Agnihotri added that they were still working on the script, and would begin shooting for the flick on December 6.

“We are still completing other important tasks before we decide on signing the actors,” added Atul.
