I am sure y’all will agree when I say that Deepika Padukone is truly a star in how she has built her career and become this force to reckon with in all these years. Touted as one of the most bankable stars in recent times, she has done everything from a Piku, to Padmaavat or a Chennai Express — a ‘Cocktail‘ of some amazing, varied characters and stories that made us all fall in love with her, for sure!
She was last seen in the hard-hitting, Chhapaak, and is now all set to own the big screen with some massive and super interesting projects in the coming times. She is gearing up to share screen space with some of the biggest stars in India and is venturing into some super exciting genres like sci-fi, spy thrillers, mythology, proving that there is nothing she can’t do!
Here’s a look at what DP has in store for us:
Shakun Batra’s untitled next
Shakun Batra‘s upcoming relationship drama is all everyone’s talking about as they are currently shooting for it in Mumbai. Deepika is set to star alongside Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa for the first time and it is touted to be an intense relationship drama about love in modern times. DP and Siddhant have been spotted shooting for the film and sure do look like one super interesting pair I can’t wait to see on screen!
Pathan is a film everyone is excited for as Shah Rukh Khan is set to return to sets with this film after a break of two years. But what surely got me thrilled is that we are set to see him alongside Deepika in the film! They will always be my favourite jodi and it’s so exciting to see them re-unite on screen! News is that Deepika is also going to play a spy alongside SRK and has some major stunts and action sequences in the film! Now, who doesn’t want to see the amazing DP kick some ass, amirite?
Nag Ashwin’s next with Prabhas
Now, this is one project that is grand and intriguing in every aspect! The Nag Ashwin film will star the superstar, Prabhas alongside another superstar, Deepika! And that’s not it. They will be joined by none other than the legendary, Amitabh Bachchan. Now, imagine such star power in one frame. Yes, PAN-Indian sci-fi project is going to be big and I sure cannot wait to know more about it!
I, for sure, was super excited about the news of The Intern being remade in India. While the original starred Anne Hathway and Robert De Niro, Deepika Padukone has been roped in for the Indian adaptation. The late actor Rishi Kapoor was going to essay De Niro’s role, but now they are on the lookout for someone to take his place. This sure is going to be a heartwarming one and I can’t wait to see her in it!
And last, but not the least, she has the much anticipated, Draupadi. DP is set to essay the role of the mythological character, Draupadi, in this film which is a take on the Mahabharata from her point of view. This sure is a story that needs to be told and I am so excited to see her step into this genre and this absolutely graceful and powerful role.
Now, that’s one helluva line up! Absolutely love what Deepika has in store for us and cannot wait to witness the magic she is going to bring to the big screens!
