The Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who had successfully auditioned for a role in the forthcoming film Fast & Furious 7, has apparently decided to opt out of the project because of date issues, The Times of India reported. The actress, who was asked for dates from September 2013 to January 2014, is currently in Dubai, filming Farah Khan’s Happy New Year with Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan. Padukone had edged out Kangana Ranaut and Chitrangda Singh to star in the Hollywood action film.
