Deepika Padukone

Vishal Bhardwaj has seen much success last year with his offering of Haider۪ (2014) which was a Hindi adaptation of William Shakespeare۪s Hamlet۪. The latest buzz about him is that he has reportedly signed Deepika Padukone for his next movie.

The film is said to be a biopic about Mary Evans Wadia, a stuntwoman who starred in Hunterwali۪ (1935). It is thought the fimlm is titled Julia۪ and will have Padukone play the protagonist, as the rumour goes.

This would be the first time that Bhardwaj and Padukone would come together after a previous project didn۪t end up working out between the two.
