Speculations are rife that Deepika Padukone has been signed opposite Salman Khan for Kabir Khan’s next that will release on Eid next year. However, there is no official word yet on whether the duo will actually pair up for Kabir’s directorial next.
When IndianExpress.com texted Kabir Khan asking if the speculations about Deepika being paired opposite Salman were true, the director tweeted his thoughts from his official handle.
“All that is being written about my next with @BeingSalmanKhan is media conjecture. Wait for our formal announcement.” (Read: Salman Khan doesn’t accept gifts: Jacqueline Fernandez)

Earlier it was Hrithik and Deepika who were supposed to be a part of Kabir’s next. But since that project has been put on the back burner, it’s Salman Khan’s film that has taken precedence. It remains to be seen if Deepika will actually make the cut in Kabir’s formal announcement.
