Buzz is that Priyanka Chopra is set to replace Kareena Kapoor in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Ram Leela’. It is reported that Sanjay has asked Kareena Kapoor to defer her October 2012 wedding by a year, if she wanted to be in his film with Ranveer Singh. ‘Ram Leela’ is an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet - in other words, a passionate love story - and he did not want his heroine to be married until the film released. Initially, it seemed that Kareena is unaware of the development, because the day the news of her replacement was leaked, she had said, "I will start shooting with Bhansali in September, and complete it by March 2013. I am excited to be paired opposite Ranveer for the first time."

The actress revealed she has waited for a long time to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, as one Bhansali project is good for her roster. It seems Bebo isn’t aware of Sanjay’s latest concept. In the meantime, Priyanka Chopra has reportedly been negotiating with Bhansali for the same project for the last three weeks. Now, the dates have fallen in place, and sources say that she will replace Bebo in ‘Ram Leela’. Meanwhile, Kareena has confirmed that she isn’t a part of ‘Ram Lila’, but she attributes to dates problem. She has clarified that her personal life has never come in the way of her career. At the same time, her manager has reportedly said that money was another problem.
