Though the actress has had no release in the first half of this year, she has been busy working on her upcoming films. A source on the unit of Shoojit Sircar۪s Piku۪ claims that Padukone will be seen as both the hero and heroine of that particular film.
Deepika plays the title role in Piku۪. She is the film۪s conventional hero and the heroine, while the film۪s drama and conflict are between the characters played by Irrfan and Mr Amitabh Bachchan, the source reveals to Absolute India.
The source also rubbished rumours of Jisshu Sengupta being paired opposite Padukone in the film, as apparently there is no romantic lead as such. Sengupta will in fact be seen playing Padukone۪s best friend onscreen and, Deepika has no conventional romantic lead in the film.
