New Delhi:

Deepika Padukone has been making waves for the past few days due to the controversy surrounding her upcoming film Padmavati. Though the magnum opus is currently emroiled in a heated controversy, the leggy actress is getting some meaty offers from both Bollywood and Hollywood.

The 'Piku' actress is much in demand and if a recent report is to go by, we might see her opposite Shah Rukh Khan in the much-awaited Don 3. Producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani had been contemplating 'Don 3' for quite a long time now.

As per a report in Filmfare, King Khan wants the 'Padmavati' actress to be a part of the third installment of Don. Both the actors have collaborated for three films, 'Om Shanti Om', 'Chennai Express' and 'Happy New Year'.

Deepika made a rocking debut in B-town with Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Productions Om Shanti Om. The actors have been appreciated for their sizzling chemistry.

The 'Kal Ho Na Ho' actor feels that he and Deepika share a terrific chemistry and therefore wishes to cash upon it. SRK spoke to Farhan about the same and asked him to cast the 'Ramleela' actress in the upcoming film, said the report.

The report also added that since Priyanka is currently busy with third season of Quantico and other Hollywood commitments, the producers are looking to cast the 'Tamasha' actress.

On the work front, Shah Rukh is busy shooting for his upcoming untitled film by Aanand L Rai which also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.

We believe the 'My Name Is Khan' actor shares hot chemistry with both Deepika and Priyank and it would be a treat for all his fans to see him play the role of a gangster once again in 'Don 3'.
