Bollywood actor Deepika Pdukone walked out of  Silence not because that she did not want to work with ex-flame  Ranbir Kapoor, but  because of repeated changes in her role, reports Mumbai Mirror.   

Deepika had told Anurag Basu that she would sign his next film Silence, produced by UTV, only if she is paid on par with Priyanka Chopra, who is also acting in the film. But the truth of the matter is that the actress walked out of Silence.  

Initially, the report says, she and ex-lover, Ranbir Kapoor, were given a joint narration. They both agreed to act in the film, despite the awkwardness it would insinuate (Deepika is now with Vijay Mallya's son, Sidhartha).  

The report quoting a source says: “Originally, Basu wanted to cast ex-lovers Deepika and Ranbir together. During the joint narration, he even told Deepika and Ranbir that the casting of the mentally-challenged role is not so important, as he could even cast a man in that role. So, his plan was mainly Deepika and Ranbir all the way.”

Added the source, “Time and again, Deepika has announced that she has no problems working with Ranbir. Ranbir and Deepika actually shook hands after Basu's first narration to them. Both were very happy to get back together professionally.”  

Explaining what really transpired, which led Deepika to change her mind on Silence, Deepika's friend said, “Basu kept changing the script every now and then. Three meetings down the line, Deepika realised that not only her role but also the entire story of the film was being changed by Basu. Hence, she chose not to do the project. However, she was extremely professional about it. She told Basu that she was opting out.”

Deepika was thus replaced by Priyanka.
