Helmer of brilliant films like Makdee, Maqbool, Omkara and Haider, Vishal Bhardwaj is set to direct the reigning queen of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone, in his next untitled film. During a media interaction, the National Film Award-winning director said that he is looking forward to working with Deepika in his next film.

Bhardwaj, who last directed Rangoon, also added that he is very impressed with the kind of work the actress has done in her career.

“I wrote the script of that film one to two years ago, but now I am directing it. So I am looking forward to working with Deepika because I like her body of work. She is a beautiful actress and I feel the camera loves her,” he said.

Bhardwaj’s next revolved around underworld and also features talented Irrfan Khan in the lead role. The director is excited about reuniting with the actor after a long time.

“After a long time, I am doing a full-fledged film with Irrfan as the main protagonist. After Maqbool, I worked with him in Saat Khoon Maaf and Haider in which he had small roles. So, I am really excited that I am getting an opportunity to work with Irrfan in full-fledged film,” he added.

The film is expected to go on floors soon after the release of Deepika Padukone’s Padmavat.
