Deepika’s Special Request
Deepika Padukone has made a special request to keep the earrings from this year’s successful film Piku as a memento. “Piku has been an extremely special film for me, so I wanted to keep something that will remind me of the film even years later,” said Deepika. The film has collected around Rs 77.33 crore at the domestic box office. The film traces a beautiful tale of a father-daughter relationship. Deepika is seen in the role of a selfless daughter, who spends more time listening to constipation tales of her father, played by superstar Amitabh Bachchan, than on her professional or marital pursuits. Director Shoojit Sircar’s Piku not only mesmerised moviegoers with its storyline, but also earned an admirer in President Pranab Mukherjee. He loved the film, and also found the Bengali-Hindi accent used by the actors in the film flawless. Deepika Padukone will next be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Bajirao Mastani. In the film, the actor is to sport royal shararas.
