It has not been that long since a source close to Deepika Padukone hinted that the top Bollywood actress is looking to do something big in the commercial space.
Over the weekend, the buzz was that DP has been offered the remake of a Sridevi’s superhit, which was made nearly four decades ago.
Our source says, “The original Sridevi film was made by a producer from the South and directed by a Bollywood director. However, talks are on to procure the rights and remake it with Deepika.
Nobody is willing to comment on the subject because talks have just been mooted and there are a lot of modalities involved. However, it is true that Deepika is in the know.’’
DP, of course, hasn’t signed any other film at this point except Vishal Bhardwaj’s film on a mafia queen. And, that film is likely to go on floors only after Irrfan’s health (the actor is being treated for a rare form of cancer in the UK) improves.
But the Padmaavat actress has been actively listening to scripts and she is kicked about doing a mainstream film in which she gets to display white, grey and every other shade in between on the big screen.
Rumours are also rife that the actress will be starring in Wonder Woman inspired superhero film and will be training hard for the same.
Meanwhile, the talk of the town is the impending wedding of Deepika and Ranveer Singh. Reportedly, the lovebirds will be tying the knot on November 10, 2018, in Italy, followed by another ceremony in Bangalore.
What is the truth? Only time will tell.
