In September, Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday, and Siddhant Chaturvedi started shooting for Shakun Batra’s next in Goa, India. But, Deepika had to return to Mumbai as she was summoned by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for investigation.

And now, according to a report in Mid-day, the actress recently resumed the shooting of the untitled film. A source told the tabloid, “Deepika was in good spirits as she joined the unit last Thursday. Since there had been a 10-day-plus break, Shakun wanted her to ease into the process. She shot a light-hearted scene with Siddhant and Ananya.”

The source further added that when Deepika was in Mumbai, Batra shot the combination scenes of Siddhant and Ananya. The movie also stars Dhairya Karva.

While it is not yet known what the story of the film is, a source told the tabloid, “The movie studies the relationship dynamics between four friends who go on a road trip.”

The untitled film is slated to release on Valentine’s Day next year. Let’s see if the movie will be able to hit the big screens as per the schedule.
