It is very well known that actress Deepika Padukone was one of the initial choice for Shah Rukh Khan’s forthcoming untitled film with Aanand L Rai.

The actress though ended up opting out of the movie due to her commitment to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’.

But little did anyone know that the movie was next offered to Kareena Kapoor Khan but she too turned down the movie.

"The filmmaker offered the role to Kareena, but her dates were clashing with ‘Veere Di Wedding.’ Also, she did not want to start shooting immediately post motherhood, as she wanted to lose all the weight that she had gained. That’s how Rai approached Anushka for the role and she was on board," revealed the source to the daily.

Later the movie was offered to Aushka Sharma, who grabbed the opportunity to play a mentally challenged girl.

In the movie Shah Rukh Khan will play a dwarf.

The movie also stars Katrina Kaif, who will play herself in the movie.
