Vidya replaces Deepika in Dreams

After delivering one of the biggest hits – ‘Parineeta’, Saif Ali Khan and Vidya Balan are set to dazzle the viewers all over again. The couple has been signed by Balaji Motion Pictures for ‘Dream Sequence’ to be directed by ace filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj. Though Saif has been a part of the venture since its very beginning, Vidya has been brought in after Deepika stepped back.

Confirming the news a source from Balaji said, “Initially, Deepika Padukone was to do the character. The casting of the duo together after ‘Love Aaj Kal’ had its appeal. But the actress begged off when she heard that the chote nawab was having second thoughts and that Abhay Deol would fill in for him.”

However Saif determined to stay with the venture after a long chat with Bhardwaj. But now with Deepika gone, there was an urgent need for a top lady. And since Vidya was a part of Bhardwaj-produced ‘Ishqiya’, the director approached the lass.As of now the actress and the director are keen to work together in this movie and are presently working on the dates.
