There seems to be an unstated hostility between the two, a state of deadlock brought on by Deepika’s refusal to agree with Salman on certain issues.
A close friend of the actress says, “Salman is used to working with heroines who laugh at his jokes and pamper him. Deepika just won’t do that. She has always stood her ground with Salman. Most recently she has hit out at his comment on depression being a luxury.”
On many occasions the Deepika Padukone and Salman Khan pair almost happened and then didn’t. Looks like the status quo won’t change in the future.
