When we ask Deepika about it, she concedes that the storyline has floored her. “I love the script so much that I am ready to work in any capacity on the film, including an assistant director (AD),” she says, with a smile. “But I don’t know if I can manage that (working as an AD).”
The film stars Deepika’s alleged love interest, Ranveer Singh, besides Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Farhan Akhtar and Anil Kapoor.
Has Deepika made her desire known to Zoya? “Not really… I’ve met her, but not talked about it (getting associated with the film),” says the actor, who has multiple big projects — such as Happy New Year with Shah Rukh Khan, Shoojit Sircar’s Piku with Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan, and Homi Adajania’s Finding Fanny Fernandes — coming up this year. We tried reaching Zoya for a reaction, but she told us she was “busy in a meeting”.
