Deepika Padukone and filmmaker Imtiaz Ali have worked together in films such as Love Aaj Kal and Tamasha is something that all their fans cherish but little did we know that Imtiaz wanted to rope in Deepika Padukone for Rockstar. That’s right! Imtiaz Ali, who recently, wrapped up the shooting of Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan’s Aaj Kal, which happens to be a sequel to Love Aaj Kal, shared that when he met Deepika for the first time, he wanted to offer her a role in Rockstar.

“She got off the car at the hotel porch and looked at me. I immediately knew that this is the girl I have come to meet. She also immediately knew that I am the director she had come to meet because she had those eyes, that looked as if they know,” Imtiaz said, adding, “None of Deepika’s movies had released till then. I had come to meet her for Rockstar. I wanted her for Rockstar but the movie did not get made till many years later. I worked with her in other movies. Many things happened over many years at many places, all of which I might forget, but I will never forget the girl who stepped out of the car at the hotel and looked at me as if she knew”

Well, had Imtiaz’s initial plan worked out, then looks like instead of Nargis Fakhri, Deepika would be romancing Ranbir Kapoor in Rockstar. But like they say, let bygones be bygones and we are sure Imtiaz might just get both Deepika and Ranbir together in the future for a film. On the work front, Deepika recently wrapped up Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak in which she plays the role of an acid attack survivor and currently, she is in London shooting for Kabir Khan’s 83 in which she will be essaying the role of Romi Dev, wife of Kapil Dev.

deepika is exact opposite of heer. she is more meera of love aaj kal. she dont have the spontaneous and firey personlaity of heer . nargis was best for part if only she would learn hindi better. kareena is only person to pul of heer....but sadly they are siblings

They are all kaddu! Rockstar ADHM, sab same film baar baar banate rehte hain. Kabir Singh is a bigger hit. Khao kaddu!

But Katrina was first choice after RK came on board. All knw this. Why does he go on and on about this?

Even a goldfish as a heroine would've been better for this movie than Rockstar.

Katrina would look so lame in any kind of film

bhai kitni baar yeh bolega imtiaz...tab RK film mein tha bhi nahi..why not concentrate on your present film?

Deepika would look so lame in Kashmir kind of film ha ha ha

But RK was not part of Rockstar at tat time. This was during Om shanti om time

Then why didn’t he approach her when RK was cast? She was part of it when RK was not in it.

Thankgod she didn’t do rock star. She can’t be a wooden Kashmiri girl . Lol

Now haters will say its her pr...its a tight slap for them haters....

This Imtiaz is always so disrespectful towards nargis. Nobody forced him to work with her.They were desperate to cast Katrina and when she didn't give the nod to the film then they went for Nargis thinking that she too will become a rage like Katrina. Nargis became widely popular with rockstar and every guy was in love with her. So even if she didn't act well atleast she sold the movie to the audience sand was even deadly to kiss that ugly rk publicly at promotions. Imtiaz always insisting that kareena was his first choice and Deepika second isn't fair to nargis. And that film us now 8 years back. Why don't he talks about his recent flops like Jhms.
