Just like his much-acclaimed Vicky Donor, which was one of the more unique movies to come out of Bollywood these days, Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming family quirky comedy drama PIKU is once again based in Delhi. The story is essentially about a Bengali family, starting with Piku, played by Deepika Padukone, and her older father, played by the legendary Amitabh Bachchan who lives in, of course, CR Park in Delhi.
Just who is Piku? Shoojit said, Piku is an architect, who like any other independent girl, works on her own terms, runs her own small business, is undecided on what will happen in life and has an old father to look after in a cosmopolitan city.
“In the film, I have tried to put the audience in between their everyday life. I want them to start living with them and dealing with their problems.”
Produced by MSM Motion Pictures, Rising Sun Films and Saraswati Entertainment and distributed worldwide by Yash Raj Films Pvt. Ltd – Indian’s cinema’s most delightful and quirky family comedy drama movie PIKU releases worldwide on 8th May 2015.
