Even though Deepika Padukone’s seven different looks in Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming family comedy drama Piku have been loved by her fans and the audiences, what many people don’t know that the stunning superstar not just worked on her looks, but also became a student to prepare for her role, quite literally!
Even though she plays an architect in the film, sources tell us that Deepika ended up reading a lot of material on medical ailments and medicines, as several scenes required her to tend to Mr. Bachchan, who plays her father, in the film. Confirming the news, Deepika says that she, “spent hours going through information about various medical issues, and their symptoms, solutions, etc. I now know the basic details about blood pressure, constipation, etc.”
Piku is a roller coaster ride of a crazy father-daughter relationship essayed by Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone, with Irrfan Khan top-lining the cast in a pivotal author backed role. Piku also marks the coming together of Shoojit Sircar, Ronnie Lahiri and Juhi Chaturvedi, the team behind Vicky Donor. Produced by MSM Motion Pictures (a division of Sony Entertainment Network), Saraswati Entertainment and Rising Sun Films, distributed worldwide by YRF, Piku will release worldwide on May 8, 2015.
