Jab 'They' Met
Deepika Padukone and Kartik Aaryan’s appearance at the airport in December last year seems to deliver results, not so “dheeme dheeme” though - thankfully.
Fans of both these stars have been rooting to see them together ever since they saw the pair tapping their feets to the tunes of Kartik’s Dheeme Dheeme at the Mumbai airport. The buzz they created and the social media banter that followed led to the solid pairing, we believe.
According to industry sources, the duo will be seen as Radha and Krishna in Imitiaz Ali’s next directorial project. The Jab We Met-director claimed that he always wanted to delve into Radha-Krishna’s world of eternal romance and this jodi might be just perfect for the mythological characters. In a recent interview, he said, “In all of Indian folklore, I know of no other story, which is so intensely personal and yet has such an epic scale. It has been my dream to step into the world of Radha-Krishna.”
With the idea of making all his dreams come true, the magical storyteller will write, direct and co-produce the film.
Now, why do we think that Kartik Aryan and Deepika Padukone in particular would be perfect for this role? We believe them to be the right pair, considering their playful banter and most importantly the difference in their ages. Kartik (who is 29) is younger to Deepika (34) similar to the inspirations Radha Ji and Lord Krishna.
And of course Kartik’s naughty innocence and Deepika’s grace and beauty simply add to the reasons, don’t you think? While Deepika had been the igniting force behind this, through her Instagram story mentioning Kartik to teach her the hook step of his song, Kartik has also been curious and excited with the idea of working with Deepika. He added fuel to the fire by putting it out to the world that he is more than willing to be paired with the lady, saying “Hai kisi director mein dum?” in an Instagram story of his, which had a collage of the duo’s throwback photos.
Well, while there are many speculations around this pairing and nothing has been officially announced yet, we really hope to see this pair work together super soon!
