The pair of Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan was greatly appreciated in their last, ‘Piku’ and we hear that the duo will be teaming up again for a Vishal Bhardwaj movie.
Confirming the news about the film that will have Deepika playing a mafia queen and Irrfan, a local gangster, Vishal Bhardwaj said, “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 advanced stage of discussion with her.”
Talking about the film’s story, a source revealed, “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.”
Meanwhile, the movie is based on Hussain Zaidi’s book, ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’ wherein it is learnt that Deepika will be playing the role of Sapna Didi whose mission was to kill gangster Dawood Ibrahim.
