But Bhansali decided to go with the 'star children' formula, and replaced her with Sonam Kapoor.
Their love was so deep that Deepika even got Ranbir's initials inked on her nape.
Remember Himesh Reshammiya's song ' Naam Hai Tera'? Well, Farah Khan spotted Deepika in this song, and decided to cast her in Om Shanti Om.
So, essentially, it was Himesh who gave her the first break in industry! Deepika was supposed to make her debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya.
While everything was going well and their fans were hoping to hear the wedding bells, the news of their break-up stunned everyone.
Ranbir cheated on Deepika with Katrina which left Deepika heartbroken.
