Considered to be one of the biggest productions, it’s reported that the film will be India’s first ever female superhero flick starring the 32-year-old actress. The developments have been kept a secret with a creative team holding discreet meetings with Deepika on a regular basis. Currently, there is a running bid on for Rs 300 crores among multiple investors. The actress hasn’t confirmed the news though.
The actress was supposed to start shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj’s gangster drama, Sapna Didi this year, but that has now been stalled as her co-star Irrfan Khan is suffering from NeuroEndocrine Tumour.
Incidentally, Deepika, in a recent interview with Film Companion’s Anupama Chopra, said that there is a lack of good scripts being offered to her even though she would love to sign more projects. She also expressed an interest towards working in a light-hearted comedy. She also cited the kind of money big productions offering her as another problem, considering she was paid the highest for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s last magnum opus.
Also, it must be noted that there are chances of Deepika tying the knot this year with her actor-boyfriend Ranveer Singh. Considering how they have been dating for a while now, ever since they met on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram Leela in 2013, reports state that they have been considering marriage for some time. If reports are to be believed, they will get married on November 19 this year in Mumbai and a reception in Bengaluru.
