‘Piku’ star Deepika Padukone, Irrfan Khan in Vishal Bharadwaj’s next


Vishal Bharadwaj brings the ‘Piku’ stars together again. Yes, you read it right, Vishal Bharadwaj has roped in Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan for his next venture. Deepika will essay the role of most feared female dons, Rahima Khan aka Sapna Didi, who's known for almost killing underworld goon Dawood Ibrahim.

For the first time Deepika will be working with Vishal Bharadwaj. The film will be helmed by Honey Trehan. Apparently, Irrfan Khan will be playing the role of a local gangster in the film.

A source told Mumbai Mirror, "Sapna Didi had planned Dawood’s execution during a cricket match in Sharjah to avenge her husband’s death. Unfortunately for her, he got wind of her plans and killed her days before she could get to him. The film is expected to go on the floors by the year-end.”

Apparently, the movie is inspired from the book ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’ penned by Hussain Zaidi. Vishal Bhardwaj told the tabloid, "Honey has been a part of my life since before I made my first film. Launching him as a director after Abhishek Chaubey gives me deep joy. He will make a fine director. Deepika has been asking me to write a script for her for a long time. She has heard this script and loved it. We are in an advance stage of discussion with her.”

Deepika and Irfran’s chemistry was highly liked by the audience in ‘Piku’ and hope they will be able to charm the audience yet again with their dynamic performance.
