The actress may refrain from being part of the chat show this season
Deepika Padukone is right now busy with the promotions of her international film XXX: Return of Xander Cage. The actress has left for US last Sunday. So it might not have been possible for her to find time to be Karan's show this season. But rumour mills suggest that Deepika was looking for an excuse to opt out.
A source says, "Deepika was definitely going to be part of the show. She was on the list of guests to be featured on the show, however it looks like she won't be able to come this season as she has already left the country to promote the film and the show is about to be wrapped up soon."
It is said that the actress was offered to be part of the show along with Hollywood star Vin Diesel this year. A source from the show says, "We were trying to get her and Vin together and were ready to make special arrangements too. But now it looks like the plan is not working out."
There was a buzz that Vin is likely to come to India to promote the film, but there is no confirmation on it. Rumour mills also suggest that another reason for Deepika having given the show a miss is because she wanted to avoid being questioned about her relationship and personal life, a decision apparently taken after watching the Ranveer Singh-Ranbir Kapoor's episode.
