In a recent update, it has been finally announced that Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone will team up Vishal Bharadwaj’s next which is still untitled as per the ace director’s recent tweet. Initially, Honey Trehaan was supposed to direct the movie, but due to some creative differences, it has been decided that Vishal will helm the project.
Although it was speculated that the film was based on gangster Sapna Didi’s life as per an announcement made by Deepika earlier, Vishal has negated all these ideas in a current tweet. But this film in all probability will be based on Hussain Zaidi and Jane Borges’s book ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’. Deepika, who is extremely diligent about all her roles has started preparing for this role as well; she is extremely keen to get the body language correct as donning the role of a Mafia queen will not be easy. Her fans are extremely excited once the project was announced, because this is for the first time that Deepika will don the role of a lady don.
Irrfan Khan, is also excited about this second project with Deepika. For Irrfan, this film will be a home run as he has done a number of interesting projects like Saat Khoon Maaf and Maqbool with Vishal earlier. Both Irrfan and Deepika are preparing extensively for their respective roles. And the film is likely to hit the screens in October 2018.
After the hugely successful Padmavat, it will be interesting to see Irrfan and Deepika post Piku. Let’s hope that both can recreate their magic on screen.
