Deepika undergoes drastic transformation for Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi


Deepika Padukone, who will be next seen in her Hollywood debut film ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ opposite Vin Diesel, was recently spotted shooting for Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi at Mumbai’s Dhobi Ghat.

The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress seems to have undergone a drastic transformation for the role and is unrecognisable in the first glance. Deepika went totally de-glam sporting a faded, oversized salwar-kameez and dishevelled hair.

A fan club of Deepika shared pictures from the shoot of the secret project on Twitter and wrote, “Untagged- Deepika Padukone was seen shooting with Iranian filmmaker- Majid Majidi in Dhobi Ghat last week. #SecretProject.”

According to reports, Deepika is shooting for the Majidi’s ambitious project which is based in India. Majidi is one of the most celebrated filmmakers of the world and is known for his award-winning films like ‘Children of Heaven’ (1997), ‘The Color of Paradise’ (1999) and ‘Baran’ (2001). He also collaborated with Academy Award winning music maestro A. R. Rahman for the 2015 Islamic epic ‘Muhammad: The Messenger of God’.

Meanwhile, Deepika has also began shooting for her next Bollywood project ‘Padmavati’. The period film is being directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and also stars Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor and Aditi Rao Hydari.
