Reports suggest that Deepika’s ex, Nihaar Pandya, who she was dating during her struggling days, is a part of Kangana’s film. According to mid-day, Nihaar will play Bajirao II in Zee Studios' Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. For those who don’t know, Nihaar played a cameo in Salman Khan’s Marigold in 2007. However, that wasn’t a full-fledged role. It now looks like, the gates of Bollywood have finally been opened for him.

Talking about Nihaar and Deepika’s history, the duo apparently was living-in when Dippy shifted from Bengaluru to Mumbai during her initial days in Bollywood. She bagged Om Shaanti Om opposite Shah Rukh and Nihaar was left behind.
