The reunion between Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan was set to happen in a forthcoming Vishal Bhardwaj production. Now, it’s emerged that the filmmaker will also be directing the film, after having creative differences with the initial director.
“Due to different artistic visions of the film, Honey (Trehan) and I jointly came to the decision that it would be best if I took over as director and saw it through to the end,” said Bhardwaj in an official statement, as reported by Bollywood Life.
The film is based on the story of ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’, where Padukone will be essaying the role of female don known as Sapna Didi. Trehan also added, “Owing to our differences in creative understanding, we have mutually and amicably decided that it would be best for our film if Vishal sir took over as Director”.
The shoot will apparently start in February.
