A couple of days ago, we had reported that gorgeous actress Deepika Padukone has given her nod to a new project after Padmaavat (2018). To be helmed by Raazi (2018) fame Meghna Gulzar, the untitled movie is a biopic on the social worker and acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Laxmi is elated to have Deepika Padukone playing her character on celluloid. She says that the actress has played some wonderful characters in the past and hence, she believes she will give her best to the new character as well.
“I am so happy that Deepika is playing the role. I have no right to judge her. How can I judge someone for something which I can’t do? She has played wonderful characters on screen and I believe she will give her best. I want to thank Deepika Ji, Meghna Ji and the entire team who will be working together on the film. I am glad that the movie will spread awareness and will help people who are victims of such incidents to come out of it. They will get inspired that if she can do it then why not us.” Laxmi told an English daily in her latest interview.
Laxmi goes on to add that film has been in the works for two years now, “I had signed the movie in 2016 and the official announcement has been made now.”
Apart from playing the female lead, Deepika Padukone will also be making her debut as a producer with this project. The untitled movie is expected to start rolling in February, next year. On the personal front, Padukone is in news for her alleged wedding with actor Ranveer Singh in November this year.
