After Deepika Padukone said no to Balaji's Dream Sequence, Vidya Balan has grabbed the 'dream' opportunity to star opposite her Parineeta co-star Saif Ali Khan, reports Mid Day. Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures', Dream Sequence would be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.

Says a source in Balaji, "Initially, Deepika Padukone was to do the role. The casting of the duo together after Love Aaj Kal had its appeal. But the actress backed off when she heard that the chote nawab was having second thoughts and that Abhay Deol would fill in for him."

However, Saif decided to stick to the project, and Vidya Balan was signed for yet another Bhardwaj movie after Ishqiya.

Vidya has also been signed by Balaji Telefilms for Dirty Picture.
