Deepika Padukone to play the lead in ‘Badlapur 2’?

Remember Varun Dhawan‘s intense role in ‘Badlapur’. The  Actor has earned critical acclaim with his gritty performance in the movie with an intense character who went on a killing spree, seeking revenge for the death of his loved ones. Now, according to reports, producer Dinesh Vijan is planning a sequel of ‘Badlapur’ with his favourite actress Deepika Padukone who has been considered for the role of the protagonist. Dinesh Vijan, who has worked with Deepika in three films Cocktail, Love Aaj Kal and Finding Fanny, is set to make Badlapur 2.

Deepika Padukone will play the lead character. We know Dinesh’s fondness for Deepika. In fact, his upcoming film Raabta features Kriti Sanon as the leading lady but he has cast Deepika in a song, thereby ensuring that she is part of his film in some way.

A sequel to Badlapur, with a female protagonist and a completely new cast, is being planned. Dinesh has bounced the idea off to Deepika and she has loved it. It’s a character-driven role, just like Varun’s was in Badlapur. The script isn’t ready yet and once that’s done, the producer will give the actress a full narration and get her dates blocked for the film.

As of now, Deepika Padukone is the first and only choice and given their long-term association, it’s most likely going to work out. Deepika wraps up filming and promotion for Padmavati by November and begins shoot for her untitled Honey Trehan film where she plays feared mafia don Sapnadidi. Badlapur 2 is expected to roll sometime in the second half of 2018. Hope for the best!
