Deepika Padukone is set to rock the silver screen once again, this time with Rishi Kapoor. Deepika is currently basking in the glory of her latest release ‘Chhapaak’ that was based on an acid attack survivor and it was quite impactful. Now Deepika will play a little light-hearted role.

Deepika took to her Instagram to confirm and officially announce her next titled ‘The Intern’. Sharing the poster she wrote, “Thrilled to present my next!🎞 The Indian adaptation of #TheIntern A 2021 release! Presented by @_kaproductions @warnerbrosindia and @iamazureent See you at the movies! #RishiKapoor (sic).

Talking about the same, Rishi Kapoor says, “THE INTERN is a very relevant film for the present-day Indian workplace milieu and it showcases human relationships beautifully. I am very excited to be working with Deepika and being a part of this heart-warming story. It is great that Warner Bros. and AZURE are officially making this film in India.

Internationally acclaimed actor and the recent winner of the prestigious Crystal Award at the World Economic Forum 2020 Deepika Padukone adds, “THE INTERN is an intimate, relationship-driven film, set in and around the workplace; a story that I believe is very relevant to the present-day social and cultural environment. I have been looking for a light, breezy comedy-drama and this story fits in seamlessly. I cannot wait to begin this journey.

Sunir Kheterpal, producer for AZURE Entertainment says, “We are thankful to Warner Bros. and Nancy Meyers for entrusting us with the first-ever adaptation of THE INTERN outside of the US. Between Rishi Sir and Deepika, we have the perfect talent package to adapt this endearing Film.

Denzil Dias, Managing Director – Warner Bros. India added, “This is an exciting time for us to be partnering in local language production with the team at AZURE, who are passionate about film and storytelling. THE INTERN has been at the top of our list for potential adaptations and this is an enviable talent packaging for the adaptation.

This will be a Hindi remake of the much loved Hollywood movie that was of the same title. The original movie starred amazing actors like Anne Hathway and Robert De Niro. The movie was about a senior citizen (Robert De Niro) who takes up an internship and how his life collides with the owner of the firm (Anne Hathway). Well, we look forward to Deepika and Rishi sharing screen space as they’d make a good duo.
