Deepika Padukone is currently busy shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, after which she will be shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj’s untitled next, which is a biopic on Sapna Didi.
Speaking to a leading daily, she said, “To be honest, it’s not a conscious decision at all. I guess it’s something I’m naturally drawn towards. A physically or mentally challenging role gives me a different kind of thrill. It’s exhausting while filming but the results are very satisfying and that feeling is irreplaceable.”
Padmavati also stars Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor and Aditi Rao Hydari, while in the Sapna Didi biopic, Padukone will share screen space with Piku co-star, Irrfan Khan.
