New Delhi: Even after Deepika with Sonam Kapoor, took a dig at his son Ranbir Kapoor on ‘Koffee With Karan Season 3', Rishi Kapoor letting bygone be bygones called her up to do an item number in ‘Kaanchi' but in reply he got a big ‘NO'.
Yes, Rishi Kapoor wanted to have an item number in Subhash Ghai's ambitious project ‘Kaanchi' to which Ghai looked unpleasant.
In an interview to monthly magazine, Ghai revealed that he was unsure of roping in Deepika Padukone for an item number as this could have overshadowed his leading actress Mishti in the flick.
But still Rishi Kapoor called her up with the offer to which Deepika had no words and she asked to give her some time to think.
Later she called him back to turn down the offer saying there are innumerable offers for item songs but she is accepting none of them. Deepika said that if she will say yes to Rishi Kapoor, she will have to accept other offers too.
Rishi Kapoor was a bit disappointed but the filmmaker was in big relief after hearing this. He was quoted as saying, “Main darr raha tha ki agar woh haan kar degi to main mar jaoonga. Kanchi ke aage agar Deepika khadi hui to mere heroine ko kaun dekhega?"
We know that Deepika is now among the A-listers but accepting Rishi Kapoor's offer, who lashed out at her earlier, could have improved her terms with him.
