Deepika chosen for Ram Leela!
After an ocean of speculations,It is finally confirmed that Deepika Padukone has been confirmed for Ram Leela.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Indian take on Romeo and Juliet, 'Ram Leela' had been put on hold due to vacant leading actress after Kareena Kapoor walked out. It was also reported that Priyanka Chopra was approached.
An insider according to TOI revealed that since the female lead needed to be fair, Kat was a strong contender. But Dippy, however, clinched the deal.
A source close to the project revealed, "Bhansali wanted an A list heroine to play Leela. He approached Katrina but she did not have dates. Deepika was the only one with available dates for the project. Bhansali was only too happy to have her."
