Deepika Padukone has finally announced her next film after Padmavati. The actress will be seen opposite Irrfan Khan in the untitled film.

Both have worked together in Piku before which was a commercial and critical success. The new film will be a joint production between Vishal Bhardwaj and KriArj. It will be directed by Honey Trehan

Deepika will essay the role of feared mafia don Rahima Khan popularly known as Sapna Didi while Irrfan will play a local gangster, reported Mumbai Mirror. The movie is based on one of the chapters from S Hussain Zaidi’s book – Mafia Queens of Mumbai. “Sapna Didi had planned Dawood’s execution during a cricket match in Sharjah to avenge her husband’s death. Unfortunately for her, he got wind of her plans and killed her days before she could get to him. The film is expected to go on the floors by the year-end,” a source close to the project was quoted in the report.

Vishal also told Mumbai Mirror, “Honey has been a part of my life since before I made my first film. Launching him as a director after Abhishek Chaubey gives me deep joy. He will make a fine director. Deepika has been asking me to write a script for her for a long time. She has heard this script and loved it. We are in an advanced stage of discussion with her.”

  2. Lol she is still much bigger than Akshay. Couple of her movies collection for each is a lifetime dream for Gobar Kumar.

  3. Deepika is no way close to Madhuri in stardom!!! She hasnt given a blockbuster with an unknown hero or flop hero like Madhuri has(Raja in 1995 and HAHK in 1994)
    Without Madhuri Salman hadnt crossed 30 crore for 13 years except No Entry(extended cameo) but Madhuri had crossed it
