Majid Majidi Reveals Why He Chose Malavika Mohanan Over Deepika Padukone In His Upcoming Film

Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi is making his first film based on India – Beyond the Clouds –  which is also going to be the debut film of Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishaan Khattar. For long, speculations were rife that Deepika Padukone will also be a part of the project, but later it turned out that Malayalam actress Malavika Mohanan has replaced her.

Deepika, in fact, took up a screen test for the film, and her pictures from the same also went viral across internet. But eventually she didn’t bag the project and the movie buffs were all in a state of shock to hear the news.
Now, finally the Oscar nominated filmmaker has spilled the beans as to what actually had happened. He admits that Deepika gave a screen test but the circumstances were such that things didn’t work out.

“My producers tell me that Deepika had shown some interest in the beginning and it is because of that, that I wanted her to be part of my movie… And when I asked her for a look test, it was not to doubt her professionalism. She is an excellent actress. But how much she befits the role, that is in my vision, I wanted to see. Let me tell you though, that the circumstances were such that they weren’t favourable and nothing materialised of it,” the filmmaker told Deccan Chronicle.

The flick is about relationships and life and is set to hit the screens by the end of the year.
