The fundraiser in Mumbai on April 10 aims to generate rural employment and alleviate poverty. One of the highest bidders at the event will get a chance to travel with SRK on a chartered flight.
The winner will also get the opportunity to accompany him for the promotions of Happy New Year. While Deepika will shake a leg with a lucky fan on the silver screen. Happy New Year director Farah Khan was instrumental in involving the actors for the event.
We hear you are going to romance Deepika in Shoojit Sircar’s next?
Let’s see how it goes. She’s a wonderful girl. I’m sure I’ll have a great time working with her.
The casting is quite unusual, don’t you think?
Deepika wants to broaden her horizons, so she’s trying different kinds of work. It’s brave on her part to accept such roles at this stage. It’s going to be a new experience for her. The audience also needs that freshness from an actor. She’s a very intelligent and brave actor.
Deepika Padukone will be romancing Irrfan in Shoojit Sircar’s film Piku. The film has Amitabh Bachchan essay a pivotal role. Vikram Malhotra is producing the film along with two other partners. The project is slated to go on the floors soon.
We have learnt that Deepika Padukone has been finalised for Karan Malhotra’s ‘Shuddhi’. After finishing ‘Happy New Year’, she moves on to Imtiaz Ali’s next with Ranbir, post which she would be shooting Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Piku’. She then moves on to shooting ‘Shuddhi’, a period reincarnation love story that is expected to go on the floor end of the year.
The film was to initially star Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor, but post Hrithik’s decision to opt out of the film for personal reasons, the casting had to be re-considered. While Deepika stands confirmed, options for the male lead are still under discussion. We eagerly await Karan Johar’s announcement on the same.
