Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone are two of the biggest and highest paid stars in Bollywood,
so it’s surprising that they’ve never worked with each other.
But Salman has now said that it was never even a possibility, because “No one has come forward to cast me with her.”
Salman said in an interview to DNA that “Deepika is a big star, so it has to be worth her while to do a film with me. Right now, there is nothing.”
It has been rumoured that Deepika and Salman were paired opposite each other on several occasions, but projects kept falling apart.
According to an AmarUjala report, Deepika has rejected six films opposite Salman.
In fact, Salman had offered to launch her in Bollywood, but Deepika told Khaleej Times that she was ‘too young’ for the industry.
Deepika isn’t a part of Salman’s upcoming slate of announced films.
Salman will next be seen in Bharat. He was recently cast opposite Alia Bhatt in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah.
Deepika has commenced work on her Padmaavat follow-up, Chhapaak, a film based on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.
The actor’s first look from the film, which showed her in heavy prosthetic makeup, was recently released.
