Deepika Padukone sure it one of the most versatile actors in the Hindi film industry. And she has proved the same with her film choices, ranging from Cocktail to Piku to Padmaavat recently. After the success of Padmaavat, Miss Padukone seems to be on cloud nine, but the success of one film doesn’t alter the fact that she has to prepare for her next, Sapna Didi.
Rumoured to be based on the life of Mumbai’s Mafia queen, Sapna Didi also stars Padukone’s Piku co-star, Irrfan Khan. The film will be directed by Vishal Bharadwaj and produced by KriArj Entertainment, T-series, and Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures and goes on floors on March 5.
While speaking about the film to a leading daily, Padukone 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 story needs to be told.”
With KriArj Entertainment backing one of the finest films of the industry and Vishal Bharadwaj being the storyteller he is, we just cannot wait for this one!
