Ever since Kareena Kapoor refused to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the latter’s “Ram Leela”, which is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “Romeo-Juliet”, the hunt was on for the leading lady of the film. Numerous names popped up, from Priyanka to Katrina.

But finally, it turns out that Deepika is the one who will be seen playing “Juliet” in SLB’s ambitious project. The film stars Ranveer Singh playing the character based on Shakespeare’s “Romeo”. However, not even Deepika’s dates came easily for Bhansali.

Reportedly, Dippy transferred the dates she had given to Karan Johar & Ekta Kapoor’s joint venture to “Ram Leela” as the project was taking a lot of time & even the script wasn’t ready. But now, looks like the problem is solved for SLB.

And now with the casting being complete for the film, we’ll have to wait & watch how soon the film hits the silver screens.
