Shahid Kapoor's younger brother Ishaan Khatter will be making his film debut with Majid Majidi directorial "Beyond The Clouds"; now, this is a huge for this young actor, at the young age of 21 he got the chance to work with such filmmakers is a big thing. The B-Town diva gave auditions for the movie, the pictures but the director had plans of his own.

Coming back to Majidi's recent interview, it really makes us wonder, was he really unaware of Deepika's popularity before taking her look test? "That was the reason for not wanting to cast a superstar", he explains. In an interview to Mumbai Mirror he said, "I didn't want to work with Bollywood superstars". I choose my heroes from the crowd.

Majid Majidi had then said in an interview with a leading daily, "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". I just wanted to be a part of the good film and this certainly is a good film. But even for one audition, it was hard with Deepika (Padukone) as there was a large crowd and even more curiosity. "I mostly work with newcomers, but this doesn't mean that I don't want to work with professional ones", Majidi said at a press conference on the sidelines of International Film Festival of India (IFFI). One day when I was going to sleep, he asked me to listen to a song. "She is an excellent actress".

"Let me tell you though, that the circumstances were such that they weren't favourable and nothing materialised of it". Reports even suggested that Deepika Padukone wasn't too keen on the role and that she had done the look test as a mark of respect for the director.

"Beyond the Clouds" opened the 48th edition of the IFFI in Goa and is slated to be released next year.
