According to a report, when Deepika Padukone was asked if she makes a conscious decision to star in films where she has a lead role, the actor responded saying, such films find her and she never goes after them. She further said that, that’s not the criteria for her to choose a project.
Talking about her next, The Intern, where Deepika Padukone will be seen sharing screen-space with Rishi Kapoor, she said that the film is a relevant story of two generations.
The film is a Hindi remake of Hollywood drama The Intern starring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro.
Speaking to a Hindustan Times, Deepika Padukone, who was last seen in Chhapaak, was quoted saying, “To be honest, you can’t call Shakun’s film ‘light’ either… Although the overall tonality of the film is slightly lighter than my last film, in terms of inner, emotional turmoil my character goes through, it’s quite challenging. The overall genre of the film is something we haven’t seen much in Indian cinema, it’s called domestic noir. I don’t think that’s a genre we are very familiar with, but at the same time the audience is completely ready for it, as we have been exposed to that genre in different ways, whether through Hollywood films or OTT platforms”.
She further added, “What I enjoy and look forward to, as far as this film is concerned, Shakun has this strong point with people and relationships. As an audience/ actor I have enjoyed watching and performing these sort of films, whether Piku (2015), Tamasha (2015), Love Aaj Kal, films that deal with intricate human relationships.”
Sharing the news with her fans and followers on social media, Deepika Padukone recently wrote, “Thrilled to present my next! The Indian adaptation of #TheIntern. A 2021 release! Presented by @_KaProductions @warnerbrosindia and @iAmAzure. See you at the movies!”.
