After enchanting the audience with her majestic performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmaavat’ (2018), Deepika Padukone was all set to team up with ace filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj for an underworld based film, co-starring her ‘Piku’ (2015) actor Irrfan Khan. However, right after the makers announced the movie, Irrfan fell seriously ill and the project had to be put on the backburner. And everyone is curious to know about the next film Deepika has taken up ever since. Though the actress has not confirmed any new project as yet, insiders reveal that she has given her nod to star in a mega-budgeted action superhero film to be produced by Fox Star Studios.
“After going through several scripts, Deepika has finally locked one and this is a massive superhero film. Deepika will have various action scenes which fans haven’t seen her doing before. The untitled film will be produced by Fox Star and she’s quite excited about it already,” lets on a source close to the development.
Well, Deepika is an actress who never shies away from taking up challenging roles and she has proved the same again and again with films like ‘Bajirao Mastani’ (2015), ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ (2017) and ‘Padmaavat’. We are sure that she will shine in her next endeavor as well.
An official announcement on the new project is awaited.
