Vastavam web: Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi said he had approached both Kangana Ranaut and Deepika Padukone for “Beyond the Clouds” but things did not work out and he finally decided to cast Malavika Mohanan.”With Kangana, we could not work together. I heard something from her office and that made me upset. She had said ‘I did not accept the role’, which was not true. Then we followed it up and it was not Kangana but her office that had published this,” Majidi told in an interview.
“I mention this because I never reacted to what she said. I feel now I can say this. We did have some meetings, we talked together. I don’t want to go into detail. The only thing I want to say is that it is not true that she did not accept the role,” Majidi said.”She is a very good actress. (She is) strong, I hope to work with Kangana in the future,” he added.
