Bollywood well-known film director cum music composer Vishal Bhardwaj is best known for his critically acclaimed dark and action thriller movies especially based on William Shakespeare plays like, Macbeth (Maqbool – 2003), Othello (Omkara – 2006) and Hamlet (Haider – 2014).

The director is ready to work on his upcoming project that too a dark and a crime drama movie based on the life of Queen Rahima Khan aka Sapna Didi. And guess what, Deepika Padukone is being cast for the role of the female protagonist aka mafia queen. Shocked? We too are experiencing the same emotion.

If sources to be believed, the makers have found their role character in Deepika and she will soon be seen preparing for the same. Currently, she is occupied with her upcoming movie, Padmavati starring Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.

And what else, Deepika’s co-actor Irfan Khan will share the screen space with her in this film. The movie will revolve around him being a local gangster in love with the mafia queen (Deepika) and will support her on the mission to kill Dawood Ibrahim. Soon after wrapping up the shoot for Padmavati, Deepika will learn to use a gun while Irfan Khan has asked the makers to allow him to perform his stunts by his own.

The next yet untitled movie will be directed by Honey Trehan who worked as an assistant director to Vishal (Bhardwaj) for movies like Omkara, Kaminey. And is co-produced by Prerna Arora.

It would be interesting and exciting to witness the dimpled actress in an action based role for the first time onscreen.
