‘Piku’ once again! Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan to team up for Vishal Bhardwaj’s next
Both of them are impeccable performers and when such ace performers collaborate for a project, a masterpiece is bound to roll out! Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone had teamed up for ‘Piku‘ and we simply fell in love with the two. Now, we hear that this unconventional jodi is all set to team up once again.
If reports are to be believed then Irrfan and Deepika have been roped in for Vishal Bhardwaj’s next film. But unlike ‘Piku’, this one is going to be a gangster thriller. Deepika would be essaying the role of female don Sapna Didi in this film. Sapna Didi was one real life fierce woman who had guts to attempt to execute underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. This project which is yet to be titled, would be a narration of an extract from Hussain Zaidi’s book ‘Queens of Mumbai’.
Talking about Irrfan Khan’s role in this film, he would be essaying a role of a local gangster. While Irrfan has essayed such intense characters in past, it would be interesting to see how Deepika transforms herself into the character of a lady gangster.
Confirming this project, a source informed a leading tabloid, “Sapna Didi had planned Dawood’s execution during a cricket match in Sharjah to avenge her husband’s death. Unfortunately for her, he got wind of her plans and killed her days before she could get to him. The film is expected to go on the floors by the year-end.”
Alright then! We look forward to this film. (Also Read: What happens when Deepika Padukone gets stuck in an elevator with a man? She goes crazy!)
