Vishal Bhardwaj to direct Deepika Padukone-Irrfan Khan's next

22nd December 2017

Finally, something has urged Vishal Bhardwaj to step in as director of an untitled Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan-starrer, which was formerly to be directed by Honey Trehan. This flick will be produced by KriArj Entertainment and Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures.

In a statement, the director said, "Due to different artistic visions of the film, Honey (Trehan) and I jointly came to the decision that it would be best if I took over as director and saw it through to the end."

On the other hand, Trehan who has worked closely with Bhardwaj over the years was supposed to make his directorial debut with this project. Adding to the situation he said, "Owing to our differences in creative understanding, we have mutually and amicably decided that it would be best for our film if Vishal sir took over as director."

The movie is supposed to be a thriller, however, the title of the movie has not yet been decided. This is the second time that Deepika and Irrfan will be seen in a movie together after Shoojit Sircar's comic-drama 'Piku'.

While Vishal has worked with Irrfan on movies like 'Maqbool', '7 Khoon Maaf', and 'Haider', this will be the first time the writer-director will be collaborating with 'Padmavati' star Deepika Padukone. The Irrfan and Deepika movie will go on floor by the end of February.
