Award-winning filmmaker Shoojit Sircar is currently busy with his forthcoming film ‘October’ which features Varun Dhawan in the lead role. Recently, at the trailer launch of his unconventional film, Sircar talked about his lead actor Varun at length and called him his ‘Jigar ka tukda’. However, as soon as actress Deepika Padukone, who shares a very close bond with the filmmaker, read the statement in a story, she took to Twitter and responded in mock jealousy by replying “Acha”. In response, the director replied that he and Varun were constantly talking about her on the sets of ‘October’. To which Deepika retorted, “Proof chahiye dada…proof”.
Their friendly banter on the social networking site was totally unmissable. After reading their funny tweets, fans couldn’t stop themselves from missing good days of ‘Piku’ (2015). Almost every film enthusiast wants the duo to come together for another project. When Shoojit was asked about the same during an interview, he said, “Deepika is my sweetheart, as is Irrfan (Khan). Yes, she has certain expectations from me and both Juhi (Chaturvedi) and I are working on something with her in mind.”
‘Piku’ is the only film Deepika and Shoojit have done together. Also starring Irrfan Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, the slice-of-life film was one of the most loved movies of 2015 and, along with winning a lot of raves, went on to bag the Filmfare Award for Best Actor (Female) for Padukone.
Deepika is next collaborating with filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj for an untitled film. Sircar, on the other hand, is awaiting the release of his next ‘October’, which also features debutante Banita Sandhu. The movie is slated to open in cinemas on April 13, 2018.
