Deepika Padukone, the leggy lass of Bollywood who will next be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati opposite handsome hunk Ranveer Singh, is all set to enact the part of a female don Sapna Didi in Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming flick. Insiders reveal that Deepika has already heard the script and loved it. Vishal will be production the film, while it will be helmed by Honey Trehan. As a tabloid quoted a source in this regard:

Sapna Didi had planned Dawood’s execution during a cricket match in Sharjah to avenge her husband’s death. Unfortunately for her, he got wind of her plans and killed her days before she could get to him. The film is expected to go on the floors by the year-end.”

On the development, Vishal Bharadwaj said:

“Honey has been a part of my life since before I made my first film. Launching him as a director after Abhishek Chaubey gives me deep joy. He will make a fine director. Deepika has been asking me to write a script for her for a long time. She has heard this script and loved it. We are in an advance stage of discussion with her.” 

Irrfan Khan will play a local don in the film and it will be for the second time after Piku that he will be working with the dimpled beauty in any project.
