After delivering a compelling performance in Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak, Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone announced her upcoming project in January 2020. Not giving many details about the Hindi remake of The Intern, the makers only revealed that the lead characters will be essayed by Deepika Padukone and Rishi Kapoor.
Ever since the announcement, the audience and fans were eagerly waiting to see this pair on the big screen. But a recent report published by a leading news wire is suggesting something else.
Interestingly, a report surfaced online and claims that the film has to wait or be re-cast, as Rishi Kapoor's health reports suggest that he is unlikely to take up any work until he recovers. The report further added that co-producers Deepika Padukone and Sunir Khetrapal have taken a call to re-cast Rishi’s role. Giving a brief about the same, the report also reveals the other obvious replacement for Rishi's character.
The report states that Deepika wanted to share the screen space with Rishi Kapoor for a project. The report while quoting a source, which revealed the details to the news wire, said that it seems unlikely that this untried casting combination (Deepika and Rishi) will happen. On the other side, no official announcement has been made by the makers or the actor yet.
