For quite some time now, speculations were doing the rounds that Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone have been roped in to play the lead roles in Yash Raj Films's next.

However, the buzz is that Deepika has walked out of the project due to reasons best known to her, reported Bollywood Life.

This would have been the first time the Bollywood hunk and the "Piku" actress would have been seen romancing each other on-screen. 

Apparently, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has stepped in to be a part of the mega-budget project.

To be directed by "Dhoom 3" director Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film is said to be a mega-budget film with high-octane action sequences.

While no confirmation has been made regarding the same, it can be considered as mere speculation.

Meanwhile, the "Bang Bang" actor is busy shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama "Mohenjo Daro" that has newcomer Pooja Hedge in the female lead role. He is also shooting for a reality TV show.

On the other hand, Deepika, whose last outing with Big B "Piku" was a superhit, has Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus "Bajira Mastani" alongside beau Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra.

The actress also has Imtiaz Ali's "Tamasha" opposite ex-beau Ranbir Kapoor.
