Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan won hearts of many people in Piku and now they will again be paired opposite each other in Vishal Bhardwaj’s untitled next.

Irrfan has already worked with Bhardwaj, while this will be Deepika’s first outing with the filmmaker.

The film, which was earlier helmed by Honey Trehan, now will be directed by Vishal. Reports, suggested earlier that the film is a biopic and is based on the life of mafia queen Rahima Khan, Sapna Didi, which is adapted from Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai.

Prernaa Arora of Kriarj Entertainment clarified and said that their upcoming production is a work of fiction. “The film is not a biopic. Vishal sir is directing a fictional thriller that deals with the topic of revenge,” she added.

The shooting of the untitled film will kick start in Nepal on March 5, 2018. The untitled Irrfan-Deepika starter will be bankrolled by T Series, Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures, and KriArj Entertainment.
