Actress Deepika Padukone has revealed the reason behind her choosing "Piku". The actress will be playing a modern Bengali girl's character in the film.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan will play the role of Padukone's father. The actress will be seen romancing Irrfan Khan.
Padukone, who has experimented with films, said 'yes' to Shoojit Sircar's film because of the great script. "I want to read a script that makes me wonder, 'How am I going to do this?'", Filmibeat quoted Padukone as saying.
Apparently, the script of "Piku" is written by Juhi Chaturvedi. Well, this is not the first time that the script-writer is working with Sircar to make a great film with an unique concept. "Vicky Donor" was Chaturvedi-Sircar's creation and had bagged several awards.
when asked whether Padukone is the right choice for the comedy drama flick "Piku", the director replied: "It's not just actors, but even us directors want to work with mainstream stars. We want to reach out to maximum people."
It is true that the "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" actress is on the A-List of all filmmakers. Her back-to-back blockbusters have increased viewers' expectations from her upcoming movies.
She will soon appear on the big screen with her ex-lover Ranbir Kapoor in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Bajirao Mastani."
