Titled Sarojini, the film will be directed by Akash Nayak and Dhiraj Mishra. Earlier, while talking about the biopic, Dipika had told a portal, “I have been offered Sarojini Naidu biopic. Dhiraj (Mishra) hasn’t narrated the story due to the lockdown but he has briefly mentioned it. We have to look into the details. We will be sitting for a story session, once all this is over. I am looking forward to doing it if everything falls in place.”

Well, we are sure the shooting of the film will kickstart once the lockdown is over. Meanwhile, Deepika is very happy with the response the rerun of Ramayan is getting. The rerun of the popular show has got 7.7 crore viewers beating the international show Game Of Thrones. While talking about it, Dipika had told a news agency, “I am really overjoyed that it has overtaken Game Of Thrones. I thought it was one show that everyone has viewed and when I looked into it that Ramayan has overtaken Game Of Thrones, I was really very happy. I am really very happy about it. It is great news.”
