“The problem was not in bringing them together. Not at all! Both Duggu (Hrithik) and Deepika were keen to work together. Every time Deepika met Hrithik she was like, ‘When? When? When?’ But it had to be the right bright script with equal roles for both. This is why Deepika has said no to other offers with Duggu in the past. They were great set-ups but her role was not worth it. Finally, Siddharth Anand has come up with a script that’s totally worth it for Deepika,” a source close to the development was quoted as saying in SpotboyE.
