After Padmaavat, Deepika Padukone has no releases as of now and we know the reason.
If you remember, Deepika Padukone has been spotted with an injury on her neck lately. We told you how she has suffered a slip disc which has made it essential for her to rest. That has put her next film in jeopardy. She was supposed to start working on Vishal Bharadwaj’s project with Irrfan Khan. But now that film will have to wait since both Irrfan and Deepika aren’t well. That makes us realise that Deepika doesn’t have any film to work on because of her injury. She was rumoured to be part of the next installment of xXx as well but nothing has been confirmed on that end as well.
Everyone was really looking forward to this film since it was Deepika’s next after the huge success of Padmaavat. She is now one of the most successful actresses in India. Also, it was a film that would bring the Piku pair together. The chemistry they had was really subtle in the Shoojit Sircar film. But it will take time for the film to get made now. Vishal Bharadwaj had earlier posted on his Facebook account that he has pushed the shooting of the film for his actors. He had written, “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 developed during the shooting of ‘Padmaavat’, has now resurfaced.” He had further added, “In the past few weeks, I felt like I was back in the days of ‘Maqbool’ while prepping with them. Deepika and Irrfan’s look tests have come out exceptionally well, nothing like you have seen before, and it took me a moment to recognise them when I saw the test photographs.” Well, that made us interested in the film too but guess we will have to wait for the actors to get better for the same.
Irrfan, yesterday, announced on Twitter that he has contracted a rare disease but didn’t confirm what it is. We just wish both of them a speedy recovery.
