Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan starrer Piku ended up being a superhit at the box office back in 2015 and the duo are all set to be seen in Vishal Bhardwaj's upcoming project which will go on floors on March 5, 2018. Talking about the upcoming film, Deepika Padukone opened up to HT by saying,
"It's the first time I will be working with Vishal Bharadwaj and second time with Irrfan Khan. I would have liked to do a slightly less exhausting and emotionally draining film. But I guess this was what was in store for me. This film has also gone through a lot. You know, it's something that has stayed with me for two years. I feel this woman's story (which the film is based on) needs to be told."
Deepika Padukone & Irrfan Khan
The film starring Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan is based on journalist S Hussain Zaidi's novel 'Mafia Queens Of Mumbai'.
Deepika Padukone will play the role of gangster Rahima Khan, known as Sapna Didi all across Mumbai.
