Rajkummar Rao’s dream of working with Deepika Padukone is about to come true. As per reports the actor has been approached for Deepika’s first home production film to be directed by award-winning filmmaker Meghna Gulzar. The film is based on acid-attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Deepika will be essaying the role of Laxmi. Reports suggest that Rajkummar was recently approached for the film. Though his role is small, it’s an important one. As we know, Rajkummar has been wanting to work with the talented Deepika since long. This will be the first time when Rajkummar and Deepika will be seen together on the big screen.
This is the only film, which Deepika Padukone has greenlighted since the past two years. Deepika had confirmed about this particular film in a recent interview saying, “You all know about the film I’m working on. We start filming early next year. It’s a story that needs to be told. It’s a true-life incident and hopefully good things will come out of it.”
We believe so too.
