Bollywood star Deepika Padukone is a frontrunner to star opposite Salman Khan in Ramesh Taurani's new film Ladies and Gentlemen to be directed by Raj Kumar Santoshi, says a media report.
Deepika had been occasionally saying in interviews that she would love to work with Salman.
In the recent past, there were rumours of the two coming together in Ready, Kick and Bodyguard but nothing worked out, says the report.
Adds the source, "Dippy was so kicked about working with Sallu that she hasn't charged her market price. This is not something she does often."
However, Taurani maintains, "The film goes on floors in December but we haven't locked an actress yet." He also claims that the film has only one heroine, not three.
