Big B & Deepika Padukone in ‘Piku’

While Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone are currently busy shooting for Shoojit Sircar۪s upcoming film, Piku۪, the duo have already been approached by Sriram Raghavan to star in his upcoming film.

Speaking to Absolute India, a source revealed, (Sriram Raghavan) has bought the rights to Vikas Swarup۪s novel, ‘The Accidental Apprentice’ and is looking to cast Amitabh and Deepika together_ Sriram has apparently met Deepika who has given a go ahead to the film as she has liked the narration. She will start shooting for it once she wraps up Piku۪, Tamasha۪ and of course Bajirao Mastani۪ which means the film will only go on floors in the latter half of 2015.۝

For now, Raghavan is busy with the post-production of his Varun Dhawan starrer, Badlapur۪, which is slated for release on 20th February 2015.
