Deepika Padukone’s pictures in a deglam look with acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi are breaking the internet and the actress says the details about the same will be revealed soon. Deepika went almost unrecognised in the salwar kurta sans make-up avatar, and the pictures sparked the rumours that she is collaborating with Majidi for his next directorial venture.
There have also been reports that the almost day-long shoot was held only for Majidi to gauge if Deepika’s look suited a prime character in his film. When asked about it the 30-year-old actress told reporters, “You will know soon.” Deepika was speaking at the red carpet of Lux Golden Rose Awards held here last night.
She recently shot for a Lux advertisement with superstar Shah Rukh Khan, and noted actresses Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit. The actress said it was an honour to share screen space with the two divas. “I have grown up watching Madhuri ji and Sridevi ji and to share screen space with them and to be with them was a huge honour. It’s been nine years and I feel I have a long way to go. It was fun doing the ad,” she said.
Deepika is gearing up for the release of her maiden Hollywood debut, xXx: Return of Xander Cage. When asked if her co-star Vin Diesel and the rest of the cast will come for its Indian premiere, Deepika said, “Hopefully they all will be here. I have spoken to them a lot about India and they know a lot about our country.”
