Reports of Deepika Padukone starring in a superhero film have been doing the rounds since May 2018. The actress — who already has confirmed the Meghna Gulzar directorial Chhapaak as her next — spoke to Filmfare about the superhero film.
“Yes, I’m working on it. I hope it happens. There’s no script as yet. It’s something my friend and I are developing,” she said adding, “I was in the plane with a friend from the industry and talking about the movies we’d like to make. We realized that this superhero film is something we’d like to make. It’s a seed we’re nurturing.”
When asked if the superhero film will be her next after Meghna Gulzar’s film, she replied, “It could be. But it needs to come together. All the elements in the film need to be correct. From the characters to the director, everything needs to be fixed.”
Considering the fact that Deepika has already done a high octane Hollywood action film — xXx: Return of Xander Cage — her superhero avatar won’t be a surprise to her fans.
