Deepika Padukone is a name to reckon with in Bollywood today. The actress holds as much power on the box office as any leading heroes of her age. She had a dream debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Farah Khan’s directorial Om Shanti Om and post that has only gone from strength-to-strength sharing screen space with Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham. However, she still hasn’t appeared in a film opposite Salman Khan much to the dismay of the fans.
During a recent interview, while promoting her upcoming film Chhapaak, Deepika was asked about collaborating with Salman on a film. To this, she said, “Our fans are always curious about if we are doing a film together, about when we are doing a film together. I really want to do it but I think it's important for us to come together for the right kind of film.” She revealed that they have not been offered anything in recent times but she would love to do a film with him.
She further said that she is one of the biggest fans of Salman’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and as fans we’ve always seen him in a certain kind of films, and hence she would like to see him in a similar kind of role or something different than what he usually does. She said, “I think it's really the script that matters.”
