July 30 : Deepika Padukone took to her Instagram handle today and shared a behind-the-scenes picture from the sets of Shakun Batra’s next. It seems the actress is preoccupied with the film again, where she shares screen space with Ananya Panday and Siddharth Chaturvedi.
Taking to her Instagram profile, the actress appeared to be building up the momentum. The Padmaavat actress shared a picture, wherein she can be seen sitting at a table reading, dressed casually in an oversized hoodie and pants, with her hair tied up in a bun. Shakun Batra was also seen in the frame. Crediting filmmaker Karan Kapoor for the picture, Deepika asked her fans to be silent as she is at work. “Shh…Work in progress,” she captioned her post.
Fans were also excited to see the picture and hear something on the film front. “Can’t wait,” wrote one, another wrote, “Deepu title toh bta do movie ka. Kab tak shakun batra’s next bolege (Deepu, please tell us the title of the film. How long will you call it Shakun Batra’s next).” Another fan wrote, “Looks fantastic.” “Peek-a-boo with a hoodie and a bun- YOU WANNA KILL ME?” wrote yet another.
Sakun Batra of Kapoor & Sons fame is quite hush about his forthcoming film. Deepika reportedly plays the role of a fitness trainer in the film but nothing has been confirmed by the makers. Last year, the actors shot in Goa and then they were spotted travelling to and from Alibaug for the film's shoot.
Talking about the film in an earlier interview, Deepika had said that her role was “quite challenging” and the project cannot be called a “light” film. “The genre of the film is something we haven’t seen much in Indian cinema, it’s called domestic noir. I don’t think that’s a genre we are very familiar with, but at the same time the audience is completely ready for it...,” she said in the interview.
Deepika has a series of films lined up. While she is currently shooting for Pathan along with Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham, she is awaiting the release of her film '83, co-starring with Ranveer Singh. The actress will reunite with her Piku co-star Amitabh Bachchan in the Hindi remake of The Intern. She will also be seen in Fighter co-starring Hrithik Roshan. The actor will also be seen with Prabhas in a project, shooting for which has already started.
