Deepika Padukone is expected to be seen onscreen after two years in Chhapaak that is releasing on 10th January, 2019. Right now, we have been waiting for the movie to release in the theatre. Meanwhile, some interesting news has been floating around regarding Deepika. Hearing the news, you may become very happy. According to the reports, Deepika may share screen with veteran actor and ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor’s father Rishi Kapoor once again in an upcoming movie. Previously, they have worked together in Love Aaj Kal. In spite of break-up with Ranbir, Deepika has always maintained a cordial relationship with him. Even they have done movies as the leads also. Yes, they have been featured in Tamasha and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani together.
During cancer treatment of Rishi Kapoor in USA, Deepika has gone there and met with the actor. On the occasion, Deepika has posed with Rishi Kapoor and his wife Neetu Kapoor also. The couple has given their best wishes for her marriage with Ranveer Singh also. In case news of collaboration becomes true then the fans will be rejoicing without any doubt.
At the trailer launch of Chhapaak, Deepika has revealed “It is so Ironic, even I didn’t know what I would feel when I saw myself in the mirror for the first time (after make-up). I remember that moment very clearly, when we were doing the look test at Fox Studio office. It took me four to five hours for the look, and when I did look at myself in the mirror, I told Meghna that I still felt like myself. Nothing had changed. That is the day I found my character, and I knew what I need to do in this movie. I don’t think we are defined by our external appearances”
Regarding challenges in life and narrating a gruesome story, Deepika has said that it may be possible to find some inspiration from this story. She has said “It is not often that you come across a story that inspires you so much, and it’s not about the incident as much as it’s about the triumph over it. I have been extremely fortunate to meet Laxmi Aggarwal. One of the most important things is the marriage between having that story and also having the right person to tell it. I could see the sincerity and the honesty, and I knew I was in good hands”
Later on, Deepika has added “Very often, you come across great stories but you also need a right director to tell the story in an authentic, honest and responsible manner especially when you’re narrating a story like this one.” For the first time, Deepika will be seen as the producer in this movie in collaboration with Fox Stars. Raazi fame director Meghna Gulzar will be directing the movie.
