Deepika, Irrfan's new film not a biopic
Directed by Honey Trehan, the movie will see the two stars on screen for the first time since Piku
The makers of a new film featuring Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone have clarified that the project is fictional and yet untitled, contrary to earlier reports that it's a biopic on mafia queen Rahima Khan aka Sapna Didi.
"T-Series, KriArj Entertainment and Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures clarify that their next production is untitled and fictional, starring Deepika Padukone and Irrfan," read a statement issued by a representative of T-Series.
The Piku stars will be directed by Bhardwaj's long-time associate Honey Trehan.
Producer Bhushan Kumar says, "Deepika and Irrfan are great actors. We are very excited with the subject, and are proud of associating with KriArj Entertainment and Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures on this film."
The shooting of the film begins early 2018, and it is slated for release in October 2018.
