The Fast and Furious franchise is showing no signs of slowing down and is bringing us movie after movie, thick and fast. Shooting for Fast and Furious 7 has already begun and it was claimed that Deepika Padukone would appear in the film. Unfortunately, it has now been confirmed that Deepika has had to pull out of the film due to other commitments.
A spokesperson for Padukone told PTI, "Deepika was offered to be a part of the next Fast And Furious movie. She is a huge fan of the franchise and it's disappointing not to be able to do it. Unfortunately, the movie goes on the floors immediately, and that left too short a time for her to shift her existing date commitments to the producers of Ram Leela, Happy New Year and Finding Fanny Fernandes."
Meanwhile, the actress herself was less open about the events, adding, "I think a lot has been said. I have never been comfortable to talk about what doesn't happen, I [would] rather focus on what is happening."
It has also recently been claimed that Kangana Ranaut and Chitrangada Singh has screen tested for roles in Fast and Furious 7, although nothing official has been announced about the role. Fast and Furious 7 will open on July 11, 2014 in the US and July 25, 2014 in the UK.
