Deepika Padukone became the reigning Queen of Bollywood in 2013 when she had four blockbusters in her kitty back-to-back with Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Ram-Leela. She followed a similar pattern in 2015 when she had another three hits and great performances with Piku, Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani. The past few years, after dabbling into Hollywood, Deepika has been taking it slow in B-town and giving us one film a year but looks things are about to change.
According to reports in Mumbai Mirror, the actress’ calendar has been listed out and things look quite promising. She has Shakun Batra’s next starring Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday. The actress has been shooting for it non stop in Goa, Mumbai and Alibaug as of now. With just some songs and some scenes left, the actress is all set to wrap up the film.
Post this, she will start shooting for YRF’s Pathaan next year till mid-2021. For this, she will be flying to Dubai and reunite with Shah Rukh Khan for the fourth time. The actress plays an undercover agent like SRK and apparently has some action scenes in the film.
Then comes the much-talked-about film Nag Ashwin’s next directorial. For this one, the actress will team up opposite Prabhas and the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan. Deepika Padukone then has a light film on her platter which will be the remake of the Hollywood film – The Intern. She will play a woman at a high corporate position who has an older man playing the intern. While initially the film was announced with Rishi Kapoor, the team has not yet announced who will play the role now.
And finally, Deepika jumps to her most ambitious project Mahabharata. The actress will play the role of Draupadi. Deepika will be doing a lot of work on this one and make sure that its a movie that surpasses all expectations.
