“Our fans are always curious about if we are doing a film together, about when we are doing a film together. I really want to do it but I think it's important for us to come together for the right kind of film,” said the actress who made his Bollywood debut opposite another superstar Shah Rukh Khan in “Om Shanti Om”.
Deepika said she has always seen Salman in certain types of films, but she is the biggest fan of Salman’s character in “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam”.
