Deepika Padukone and Rajkummar Rao might be seen teaming up for a film on acid-attack survivor Lakshmi Agarwal as the latter has reportedly been approached for a substantial role in the film.
Deepika Padukone, who was last seen on the silver screen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat earlier this year, will play acid-attack survivor Lakshmi Agarwal in her next. The film will be directed by Meghna Gulzar of Raazi fame and is expected to go on floors soon. If a report on Bollywood Hungama is anything to go by, Rajkummar Rao has been roped in to play an important role in the film.
A source in the report has been quoted as saying that while Rajkummar’s part in the film is small, it is substantial and the actor is excited about it. “The role is substantial and has excited Rao. He has not yet worked with Deepika. A role that drives back home a social message has excited that actor. Rao is never excited about the length of the roles. He did a superb cameo in Raabta which got many people talking especially for his make-up among other things,”.
