Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan will seen in lead role in Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming untitled movie.

But the director has been pushed by a few months due to unavoidable and severe reasons.

Sources says, “The director revealed that as both of his lead actors are down with different health problems there is a delay in the filming of his next project.”

Vishal drew attention to Irrfan’s struggle with jaundice and Deepika dealing with a prolonged back problem.

He says, “I am pushing back the film by a few months as both of my lead actors are down with different health problems. Irrfan is down with jaundice and it will take him a few weeks to recover and Deepika Padukone’s back problem which had previously developed during the shooting of Padmaavat has now resurfaced.”

“Her role in the film is very physically demanding and the doctor has advised her not to do any strenuous work for a couple of months,” he added.

He further added, “I want both of them to be strong and fit before we start the film. I would also like to clear that the film is still untitled and is not based on Rahima Khan/Sapna Didi’s life.”

“Yes, it’s a takeoff from the story Femme Fatale from Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai but as we worked on this idea, the story and screenplay have taken on a new identity and shape which is nowhere close to the above-mentioned names. So it’s definitely not a biopic.”–CINEWS
