If news is to be believed the forthcoming Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan starrer has finally got a title.
To be helmed by Visual Bhardwaj, the film is based on real life 80’s mafia queen Rahima Khan, recognised as Sapna Didi, and will apparently be christened ‘Rani’. Pinkvilla reports a source revealing, “Deepika has already started the preparation for her role of a Mafia queen and she is quite particular that she gets the tonality and body language as close to the late Sapna Didi who was once a terror for other gangsters. The shoot will begin by early March in Mumbai. After Padmaavat, her fans will love to see her in a whole new avatar of a lady don and hence she is really working meticulously to strike the right chord.”
Padukone recently caught up with the media and spoke about reuniting with Irrfan Khan. “The fact that Irrfan sir and I are going to be working together again, I’m so excited about that. Other than the brilliant actor that he is and all of us know, we see that but, he’s also such an amazing human being. It is going to be very special,” she said.
