Shoojit Sircar’s next film ‘Piku’ which already has a formidable cast of the Big B, Irrfan and Deepika Padukone just got more interesting.
‘Piku’ now stars Bangla heart-throb Jisshu Sengupta in the romantic lead opposite Deepika.
Jisshu who made his Bollywood debut opposite Ileana D’Cruz in a guest appearance in Anurag Basu’s ‘Barfi’ would next be seen in Hindi in Pradeep Sarkar’s ‘Mardaani’ where Jisshu plays Rani’s husband.
Apparently Shoojit was keen to cast Jisshu opposite Deepika as the role suited him to perfection. However the fact that Jisshu was being launched as a leading man by Yashraj put a question mark on Jisshu’s presence in ‘Piku’.
Jisshu showed Shoojit his Bengali film ‘Jatishwar’. Only then was Shoojit convinced.

Says Jisshu, “It’s a big break with a director I really admire and with actors I really love. It has been my dream to work with Mr. Bachchan from the time I decided I wanted to be an actor. Irrfanji is another actor I truly admire. As for Deepika, isn’t she everyone’s favourite dream girl these days?”
‘Piku’ would take Jisshu to Mumbai in August.
