It will be a major disappointment for all Deepika Padukone fans, it has been confirmed that the actress won’t be a part of acclaimed filmmaker Majid Majidi’s film, Beyond The Clouds.
Deepika who had earlier done a look test at Dhobi ghat for the film in tattered clothes, has not been signed for the film. Majid Majidi himself made the announcement at a rather early morning press conference today.
When quizzed if Deepika is a part of the film, Majidi, with the help of an Iranian translator said, “I want to work with Deepika. But for this film we thought we will go with all new faces. We decided so because we didn’t want a mixture of experienced and new faces. It was going to be either of the two (experienced or new faces). We settled for all new star cast.”
The makers confirmed Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishaan Khatter would be making his debut with the film, today.
Beyond The Clouds will be the first Hindi film helmed by director Majidi. It is slated to release by the end of this year.
