After the stupendous success of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat earlier this year , Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has been lying low on her work front.
The leggy actress is making headlines due to her impending marriage to actor Ranveer Singh. The likely marriage dates of the duo are doing the rounds for a while now.
But good news for Deepika Padukone fans, the actress has decided to not only produce but play the lead role on film based on a life a of a acid attack survivor. It will be directed by Meghna Gulzar.
“When I heard this story, I was deeply moved as it’s not just one of violence but of strength and courage, hope and victory. It made such an impact on me, that personally and creatively, I needed to go beyond and so the decision to turn producer,” Deepika said in a statement.
The “Raazi” director Meghna added that the role is emotionally and physically challenging and she is confident that Deepika would do justice to the character and the story.
