Well, in a recent chat with Mid Day, Deepika shared updates about Pathan and Fighter. She was quoted saying, “Working with him (SRK) feels like home. This is my second film with [director] Siddharth Anand, so there is a comfort [level]. In the next few months, I will start Fighter with Hrithik.”
Talking about Big B co-starrer The Intern, the actress revealed, “The Intern will happen this year, or early 2023. The third wave wasn’t anticipated, so it threw a few things off course. But now, [we are] back on track.” Other than these three projects, Deepika will also be seen in Nag Ashwin’s untitled science fiction film opposite South superstar Prabhas , will join Ranveer Singh for a cameo in Rohit Shetty ’s Cirkus and will also portray Draupadi in a retelling of the Mahabharata.
