Piku Is My Favourite Character, Deepika Padukone Says
Touchaheart Nigeria reports that Deepika Padukone says her favorite character is Piku from the 2015 movie of the same name. Irrfan Khan and Amitabh Bachchan also starred in Piku.
In a recent interview, actress Deepika Padukone stated that of all the roles she has portrayed over the course of her 15-year playing career, her part as Piku in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku holds a special place in her heart. She has claimed that the character best represents who she is at this time in her life. Also Read: Deepika Padukone claims that whenever her parents visit her, she still puts on a brave face.
In the 2015 slice-of-life drama, Deepika portrayed Piku Banerjee, a headstrong, ambitious lady.
The film had Amitabh Bachchan in the role of her father, and the late Irrfan Khan as their driver.
During an event in Mumbai, Deepika said, “There was something very special about the energy in that film. I feel I and my sister (Anisha) are at an age where we are Piku. There is something about Piku that is very special. And that’s one of the movies that keep coming up in conversations. The stage of life that I am at now, that seem to be my most favourite (character).”
“I was aware of the fact that I will be opposite these two incredible people (actors Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan) but what makes for great collaboration is when you are not competing with your co-stars and you are really genuinely invested in telling a good story and that’s what we are there to do. I don’t think Irrfan was trying to be one up on Mr Bachchan or he was trying to be one up on anyone. It was a beautiful collaborative process and we were invested in giving our best,” she added.
Alongside Prabhas, Deepika is currently working on Project K. She finished filming the Siddharth Anand film Pathaan, in which she co-stars with Shah Rukh Khan. Her first collaboration with Hrithik Roshan is Siddharth’s Fighter, which she has also signed.
