Call it a coincidence or whatever you may, but when Aditya Chopra thought of casting Deepika Padukone as the female lead in Lafangey Parindey and telephoned director Pradeep Sarkar to get his reaction, the latter was directing her in an ad film. Pradeep Sarkar, who has made more than a thousand advertisement shorts, was shooting an ad film with Deepika when suddenly, he received a phone call from Adi. An excited Adi asked Sarkar if Deepika would suit the character of Pinky Palkar in the film. The film and ad filmmaker smiled and informed Aditya that the actress was with him at that moment, shooting for an ad film. Once free from the ad film, Sarkar discussed the casting with Chopra and the latter then signed Deepika for the female lead’s role.
