Deepika Padukone Finalised For 'Ram Leela'
By MovieTalkies.com, 31 July 2012
After Kareena Kapoor ceased being a part of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming flick Ram Leela, there had been much speculation about which actress would be roped in to play the female lead opposite Ranveer Singh.
Sources now confirm that Bhansali has narrowed down on dimpled dame Deepika Padukone for the female lead in the film. It seems that Bhansali was keen to have an A-list actress play the part and had approached Katrina Kaif for the role, but as she was busy with other projects, Bhansali decided on roping in Padukone for the role.
A desi version of the famous tragic romance Romeo And Juliet, Ram Leela is set in Gujarat.
