Deepika Padukone’s last film Padmaavat broke all the box-office records. She played the titular role of Maharani Padmavati and received immense appreciation for her fine performance in the film.

Post the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, Deepika was supposed to start shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj’s film with Irrfan Khan. However, the movie has been postponed due to Irrfan’s health.

With regards to her next project, Deepika had told a film outlet: “I can’t tell you how many people have said, “can you do another Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani?” But people aren’t making that many love stories anymore. Everyone is making sports biopics. I want to do something fun and light – that’s my brief! And that hasn’t come as yet.”

Deepika has apparently signed her next film, which is speculated to be an action-oriented role. A source close to the actor informed the publication, “After going through several scripts, Deepika has finally locked one and this is a massive superhero film. Deepika will have various action scenes which fans haven’t seen her doing before. The untitled film will be produced by Fox Star and she’s quite excited about it already.”

Deepika and the team are yet to make a formal announcement, but it is believed that Deepika has given her nod to the project.
