Though the news is confirmed by the manager of Deepika Padukone as well, but as per the sources the actress was reluctant initially to be paired against Shahid Kapoor who is shorter than her in height and she doesn’t like to work with heroes with whom she is not compatible on screen, rather at the time of “Karthik Calling Karthik” also Farhan Akhtar had to stand next to her to show that he is of Deepika’s height.

In a small conversation with FilmiTadka, director Sabir said – “I don't think it really makes a difference if the leading lady is taller than the hero. Any heroine, no matter how tall, is keen to work with Aamir Khan. Dippy has agreed to do the film. I think Shahid and she make a great pair. They've never been paired before.”

He also added – “We opted for Deepika because we needed a face that could look contemporary and classical. Among the current line-up of actresses, only she could measure up to my script's demands. As for Shahid, he's an intense actor. I'm positive this pair can project the pangs of passionate love”.

He also said that as Heer Ranjha draws its inspiration from the folk poems of Punjab, music will play an important role in the movie; we also asked him about the script because as it will be a contemporary take on the legend everyone is curious about the story, but he chose to keep mum about it.
