Mumbai: Deepika Padukone is teaming up with director Vishal Bhardwaj in his next and the actress says it will be extremely challenging to work with the critically acclaimed filmmaker.
Deepika will reunite with her “Piku” co-star Irrfan Khan for Bhardwaj’s as-yet-untitled production to be directed by Honey Trehan.
“I haven’t worked with him yet so I can’t talk much. But as an audience I can say it is fascinating to see the kind of films he does. As an actor I would love to work with him. It will be extremely challenging and very exciting to be working with him,” she says during an interview here.
In the movie, Deepika will reportedly play mafia queen Rahima Khan, popularly known as Sapna Didi, while Irrfan will portray a local gangster, who is in love with her and helps her in her mission to eliminate Dawood Ibrahim.
