Talking about the film earlier, Deepika said, “THE INTERN is an intimate, relationship-driven film, set in and around the workplace; a story that I believe is very relevant to the present-day social and cultural environment. I have been looking for a light, breezy comedy drama and this story fits in seamlessly. I cannot wait to begin this journey.”
Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, the film is set to go to the floor in November 2021 and release 2022. Produced by Sunir Kheterpal and Deepika Padukone, the screenplay has been adapted by Akshat Ghildial and Mitesh Shah.
Both Deepika and Big B are very excited to be working together on this film!
