Talking about filmmaker Shakun Batra, Deepika said that she always wanted to work with him because he is someone who portrays relationships beautifully on celluloid. “Shakun is someone I have been dying to work with. I have really looked forward to this moment. I am a huge fan of his work and think he is one of those few people who can really portray relationships beautifully. And you know, those are the kinds of films that I have enjoyed watching as an audience, and even as an actor, those are the kinds of films I enjoy performing,” she said in conclusion.

The yet-to-be-titled movie is being bankrolled by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. It is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on Valentine’s Day 2021.
