Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi

After impressing everyone in the film Chhapaak, actress Deepika Padukone is all set and prepping for her next project which is being directed by Shakun Batra. The actress resumed the shoot of the film in Mumbai along with Siddhant Chaturvedi after wrapping up the first schedule in Goa. The pictures from the sets are making rounds all over social media, creating a buzz already. Ananya Panday also plays a pivotal role in the film.

The Shakun Batra directorial was earlier scheduled to be shot in Sri Lanka but the makers had to call off the plan due to the novel Coronavirus pandemic. The film is yet-to-be-titled and will be produced by Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta. The film is scheduled for Valentine’s Day release next year. After making a breakthrough performance in Gully Boy, Siddhanth Chaturvedi will be seen in this film next. The actor also stars in the sequel of Bunty Aur Babli, opposite Sharvari Wagh. While Ananya Panday was last seen in Pati Patni Aur Woh.

Talking about her film, Deepika had earlier revealed in an interview saying, “To be honest, you can’t call Shakun’s film ‘light’ either… Although the overall tonality of the film is slightly lighter than my last film, in terms of inner, emotional turmoil my character goes through, it’s quite challenging. The overall genre of the film is something we haven’t seen much in Indian cinema, it’s called domestic noir.”

“I don’t think that’s a genre we are very familiar with, but at the same time, the audience is completely ready for it, as we have been exposed to that genre in different ways, whether through Hollywood films or OTT platforms. What I enjoy and look forward to, as far as this film is concerned, Shakun has this strong point with people and relationships. As an audience/ actor I have enjoyed watching and performing these sorts of films, whether Piku (2015), Tamasha (2015), Love Aaj Kal, films that deal with intricate human relationships,” she further concluded.
