Deepika Padukone agreed to do PIKU after just one scene enactment

Actress Deepika Padukone didn’t squirm once while reciting the already infamous toilet lines to her on-screen-father Amitabh Bachchan in upcoming film, Piku. Revealing his lead actress’ complete ease, director Shoojit Sircar says in admiration,

“I never had to convince Deepika to do the lines. In fact she agreed to do the film after I enacted just one scene in front of her. Just one scene! After that one scene she said, ‘I am going to do the film.’ As for Mr. Bachchan, he heard the full script, then we had a discussion.”

It seems the director is truly impressed by the star and her growth as an actress. He believes her roles have been brave choices, she has much self control and grace. Shoojit said,

“To mouth the kind of dialogues that talk of bodily functions would embarrass many actresses. But she can say anything with grace. She is so much in control of the language.”

We can’t wait to see the magic of Deepika Padukone, Irrfan Khan and Amitabh Bachchan in Piku! Keep it locked for more updates!
