A vibrant ensemble dress with a million dollar smile, Deepika Padukone is definitely the Happiness overdose!
With Padmaavat out there in the world finally, a project she now eagerly hopes to get cracking on is the as-yet-untitled film to be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
“I’m thrilled… I’m so thrilled, of all the scripts I’ve heard in the last two years, I’ve been stuck on this one. He brought this to me first, got me excited and then when I was ready to do it, he had moved on to something else. He didn’t have the time to do it but I persisted. It’s the one occasion where I pursued the director to make the film. And it’s finally happening” said Deepika inside the cover story.
The film, for which she’ll start prepping and shooting soon, will see her reunite with her Piku co-star Irrfan Khan.
“He’s witty, he’s wise, he’s smart, he’s intelligent. And we had such a beautiful time on Piku. It was such a delicate film, but the joy I feel when I talk about it or my experience is like none other. Of course [the new film] is in a different space, so I don’t know if I’ll have the same experience with Irrfan. We’re playing different characters, and the energy on set will be completely different, but I’m glad I’ll be bouncing off someone who’s just a master at what he does. For an actor that’s going to be challenging but also very exciting” adds Deepika.
