Bollywood was in for a shock when they learned that the celebrated Iranian director Majid Majidi has roped in Malayalam actress Malavika Mohanan instead of Deepika Padukone for his upcoming film ‘Beyond the Clouds’.

Deepika had taken test pictures for the film, which went viral. The news of him roping in Malavika instead of Deepika came as a bitter pill to digest for the fans of the Bollywood queen.

Well, the director himself has come out with an explanation for this, while talking to a leading daily:

“My producers tell me that Deepika had shown some interest in the beginning and it is because of that, that I wanted her to be part of my movie…And when I asked her for a look test, it was not to doubt her professionalism. She is an excellent actress. But how much she befits the role that is in my vision, I wanted to see. Let me tell you though, that the circumstances were such that they weren’t favourable and nothing materialised of it,” he said.

The role eventually went to Malavika Mohanan of ‘Pattam Pole’ fame. She is the daughter of cinematographer K U Mohanan. ‘Nirnayakam’ and ‘The Great Father’ are her other movies.

‘Beyond the Clouds’ is a movie set in an Indian background.
