Deepika Padukone’s upcoming film ‘Padmavati’ may continue to be caught up in controversy but there’s no hold ups as far as her next film with Vishal Bhardwaj and KriArj Entertainment is concerned.
Padukone, who will be seen in the gangster flick, is reuniting with Irrfan Khan after the success of ‘Piku’ (2015).
Arjun N Kapoor of KriArj, who’s co-producing the film with Bhardwaj, said, “First of all, let me clearly state this, there has been no announcement from Padmavati team’s end regarding the new release date. So it’s anyway premature to talk about it. We don’t have an idea when it will eventually release.”
Kapoor explains, “As it is, Deepika starts our film only around January end and February next year. We plan to begin shooting towards the end of January, but that can extend to February first week. So even if the film releases around that time, and Deepika needs time off to promote the film, we will happily accommodate that. That isn’t a problem.”
He adds, “Vishal sir and we spoke a few nights ago and discussed this. We all mutually felt that although it’s not clear if the film will release around that time, even if at all, there are any requirements from Deepika’s end specifically, we are ready to adjust and we will definitely see to it that she’s comfortable.”
