Deepika Padukone’s sabbatical in 2018 has made her fans anxious to see the actress on the silver screen again. After her power-packed performance in Padmaavat, which began 2018 with a bang, Deepika will now concentrate on her next – Chhapaak, which is being helmed by Raazi director Meghna Gulzar and also stars Vikrant Massey. Chhapaak is based on the true story of acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal. Back in May 2018, rumours were rife that Deepika was all set to play a superhero in a Fox Star Studios’ movie.
When Filmfare asked Deepika about the superhero film, the actress confirmed the rumours and shared, “Yes, I’m working on it. I hope it happens. There’s no script as yet. It’s something my friend and I are developing. I was on the plane with a friend from the industry and talking about the movies we’d like to make. We realised that this superhero film is something we’d like to make. It’s a seed we’re nurturing.” Now, that is indeed some exciting news!
When quizzed if the superhero movie will be her next project after Chhapaak, Deepika pondered that it could be, but it still needs to come together. Talking about how the elements in the film need to be correct, DP states that the characters and the director need to be fixed.
