Why chose Malavika Mohanan over Deepika, reveals Majid Majidi Deepika Padukone and Malavika Mohanan

Malayalam actress Malavika Mohanan is currently gearing up for the much anticipated movie Beyond the clouds with celebrated Iranian director-screenwriter Majid Majidi.

The Oscar-nominated filmmaker made headlines when Deepika Padukone’s look test pictures for the film went viral and her not being cast for the part.

Talking to a leading daily, Majidi clarified that he never questioned Deepika’s acting skills or professionalism.

“My producers tell me that Deepika had shown some interest in the beginning and it is because of that, that I wanted her to be part of my movie… And when I asked her for a look test, it was not to doubt her professionalism. She is an excellent actress. But how much she befits the role, that is in my vision, I wanted to see. Let me tell you though, that the circumstances were such that they weren’t favourable and nothing materialised of it,” he said.
