Look forward to working with Deepika: Vishal Bhardwaj
The film was earlier supposed to be directed by his assistant Honey Trehan
Vishal Bhardwaj, who will direct Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone in a yet untitled film, says he is eager to work with the latter.
Talking about the film which was earlier supposed to be directed by his assistant Honey Trehan, Bhardwaj says, “I wrote the script of the film about two years ago, but now, I am directing it. I look forward to working with Deepika because I like her body of work.”
He also expressed excitement about collaborating with Irrfan again. “After a long time, I am doing a full-fledged film with Irrfan as the main protagonist. After Maqbool, I worked with him in Saat Khoon Maaf and Haider in which he had small roles. So, I am really looking forward to getting an opportunity to work with Irrfan in the lead on a project again,” he adds.
On the buzz over Padmavat, which is now slated for release on January 25, Bhardwaj says, “I am really happy that the film is getting a proper release, but I have read that the film will not be released in Rajasthan. I feel a little sad for it as I feel it should have been released in the entire country when the censor board has given the green signal to the film.”
