After Padmaavat, Deepika Padukone to play Rani again? This time, she is a mafia queen

Mumbai: Bollywood star Deepika Padukone, who is riding high on the box office success of Padmaavat, will soon start working on her next with Vishal Bhardwaj – a film on gangster Sapna Didi aka 80s Mafia queen Ashraf Khan. The film, which will feature Irrfan Khan as Deepika’s onscreen husband, has been titled Rani, an Indian Express report claimed.
However, a representative for Vishal Bhardwaj has refuted the claim and told Hindustan Times that the title has not been finalized yet.
Deepika has started her preparation for the role and the daily quoted a source as saying, “Deepika has already started the preparation for her role of a mafia queen and she is quite particular that she gets the tonality and body language as close to the late Sapna Didi who was once a terror for other gangsters. The shoot will begin by early March in Mumbai. After Padmaavat, her fans will love to see her in a whole new avatar of a lady don and hence she is really working meticulously to strike the right chord.”
