Deepika Padukone has struck gold yet again with her stellar performance in Padmaavat. The film, which was helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has grossed over Rs 200 crore already, becoming a major success. Apart from Deepika, the film also has Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor playing crucial roles.
Deepika’s next is Sapna Didi opposite Irrfan Khan. The duo had worked together in Piku and will now be seen in a film, reportedly, based on the life of the Mafia queen of Mumbai, Sapna Didi. The film is a thriller and will be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Produced by KriArj Entertainment, T-series and Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures, it will go on floors on March 5.
While speaking to a leading daily, Deepika said, “It’s the first time I will be working with Vishal Bhardwaj and the second time with Irrfan Khan. I’d have liked to do a slightly less exhausting and emotionally draining film. But I guess this was what was in store for me. This film is something that has stayed with me for two years. I feel this woman’s (Sapna Didi) story needs to be told.”
Honestly, we can’t wait to watch Deepika give yet another powerhouse performance. What about you?
