For the uninitiated, Salman Khan had offered Deepika her first Bollywood film but the actress had declined the offer then and was launched some years later by Shah Rukh Khan in 2007's Om Shanti Om.
"He offered me my first film when I was too young and I was not ready to be in front of the camera. I will always be grateful to him. Just the fact that he offered me a film was a great thing. It is taking a long time for us to come together on screen, so I think there is something special waiting for us," Deepika told news agency PTI, when she was promoting Ram Leela in 2013.
As of now Deepika Padukone is filming Padmavati with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and her next film will be with filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj, reportedly titled Sapna Didi. The film also stars Irrfan Khan and it is directed by Honey Trehan.
Salman Khan is busy filming Tiger Zinda Hai with co-star Katrina Kaif.
