According to a website, initially Deepika Padukone was not sure to work opposite Emraan Hashmi as she is working with all the top stars of the film industry like Shahrukh in Chennai Express, Ranbir Kapoor in Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani, Saif Ali Khan in Cocktail and Rajinikanth in Kochadaiyaan. But when Deepika heard that the Box-Office collections of Jannat 2 was Rs 10 crore and that too on the very first day, she changed her mind. After Jannat 2's success, Deepika got fully convinced about the fact that Emraan Hashmi is a rising star and said yes to the movie.
Well, Kareena Kapoor's loss, Deepika Padukone's gain!!
