Actress Deepika Padukone who graced the silver screen in Padmaavat that released in January is reportedly been roped in to play the character of acid-attack survivor Lakshmi Agarwal in her next. The film is going to be helmed by ace director Meghna Gulzar who shot to fame with her films like ‘Raazi’ and ‘Talwaar’. And, if rumors are true then Rajkumar Rao will be co-starring in this biopic alongside Deepika.
A source close to the films says that Rao’s part will be small but very important. According to him, Rajkumar will be the driving force in the film and the team is really excited to start shooting with him, he said: “The role is substantial and has excited Rao. He has not yet worked with Deepika. A role that drives back home a social message has excited that actor. Rao is never excited about the length of the roles. He did a superb cameo in Raabta which got many people talking especially for his make-up among other things.”
If we talk about Deepika, then she had confirmed this news earlier where she had told: “You all know about the film I am working on. We start filming early next year. It is a story that needs to be told. It is a true-life incident and hopefully, good things will come out of it.”
Deepika will also be sharing screen space with Irfan in Vishal Bhardwaj’s next.
