Priyadarshan and Deepika Padukone finally patch up

Priyadarshan happens to one of the senior most directors of our film industry who has as many as 83 films to his credit in his 30-year career. On the other hand, Deepika Padukone is comparatively new to the industry but has managed to carve a niche for her own with her hard work, beauty and of course, talent.

However, the two have never done a film together owing to the spat they has five years ago when Deepika chose to make her debut with Farah Khan’s ‘Om Shanti Om’ instead of Priyadarshan’s project ‘Pirates’ which was based on the subject of music piracy. The film was supposed to feature Deepika with four other newcomers playing part of a music band.

It was only in 2008, that the two broke the ice when SRK persuaded Deepika to feature in the item song for Priyadarshan’s ‘Billu Barber’. Now, the director is finally set on a project with Deepika. The film is a family comedy with the Ashtavinayak production house. The film has Abhishek Bachchan as the male lead and again, this will be the first time that Priyadarshan will work with Abhishek.

Says Priyadarshan happily, “We broke the ice during the song in Billu. Now I’ve a role just right for her. ”

“Abhishek and I have been planning projects together for the longest time. We were supposed to do a bio-pic on Chandrashekhar Azad. But who watches historicals any more? I’ve finally zeroed in on the perfect project for Abhishek. We start shooting in July, ” he added.
