Deepika and SRK have starred alongside each other in five Bollywood films; ‘Happy New Year’, ‘Chennai Express’, ‘Billu’, ‘Don 2’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’; all of which were met with a great response from the public.

The new film (which yet to be titled) will feature superstar Shah Rukh Khan playing the role of a dwarf.

According to ‘Mumbai Mirror’, Deepika was offered a role for the film but rejected the project due to scheduling conflicts with her upcoming film ‘Padmavati’, which also stars Ranveer Singh.

The source said “While Deepika was quite keen on doing the film, unfortunately her dates were clashing with those allotted to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’. Since she has already committed her dates to SLB’s historical, she had to say no to Aanand L Rai.”
