Anurag Basu’s film Imali has been in the news ever since Kangana Ranaut walked out of the film. However, rumours are rife that Deepika Padukone is stepping in to replace Kangana; but there wasn’t any confirmation on who will play the female lead. Well, now that the speculations have been rife for more than a month, let’s hear the answer from the horse’s mouth.
Kashyap, while talking to DNA told that Kangana got busy with Manikarnika and they had scheduling issues and eventually, he got busy with other films as well. He added how she wanted to be in a good space to do the film but eventually, things did not work out. Ask him about Deepika stepping in, he said that he is in talks with her and did meet her, but he also added that he cannot confirm anything to others unless she confirms it to him.
Well, looks like it is only a matter of time and Deepika’s nod that the actress might have another film in her kitty. Currently, she has wrapped up the shoot for upcoming film Chhapaak which is based on the acid-attack victims. She will be seen in a special appearance in the film 83′ alongside real life husband, Ranveer Singh.
