Kareena Kapoor recently walked out from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's prestigious project Ram Leela. It was reported that Bhansali will now cast Priyanka Chopra opposite Ranveer Singh for the same role. But Deepika Padukone is very keen to do the role of Gujarati Juliet and she is doing everything possible to steal the role from Priyanka Chopra.
A source told a leading daily, "Priyanka was all but finalised for Ram Leela. Bhansali and PeeCee were in constant touch though she's abroad working on her international music album. In fact even her clothes were finalised. And now Deepika has in her petition for the modern day Juliet, even though she was never on Bhansali's radar."
Interestingly, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is very impressed with Deepika Padukone's performance after watching Cocktail.
