There’s another female don in the city to beware of! We’re talking about Deepika Padukone as Sapna Didi for Vishal Bharadwaj’s next. The diva has bagged to role of one of the most feared female dons, Rahima Khan aka Sapna Didi, who almost killed the notorious Dawoood Ibrahim. This is perhaps the first time Deepika and Vishal will be collaborating. Although the script has been written by Bharadwaaj, the project will be helmed by Honey Trehan. Interestingly, the film also brings teams her back to her Piku co-star, Irrfan Khan, who plays a local gangster in the film. This movie is a leaf taken out of the famous author Hussain Zaidi’s book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai. Mumbai Mirror confirmed news of the same as their source stated, “Sapna Didi had planned Dawood’s execution during a cricket match in Sharjah to avenge her husband’s death. Unfortunately for her, he got wind of her plans and killed her days before she could get to him. The film is expected to go on the floors by the year-end.”
It is quite a big project considering it has two phenomenal talents together. This will be the first time that we’ll see her portray a real life personality, that too a don. Exciting, isn’t it? On the same, Prerna, producer of Rustom and Toilet-Ek Prem Katha, stated, “Yes it is true that we are producing the film along with Vishalji, who is one of the finest directors in the country. We are looking forward to this collaboration.” Furthermore, while confirming reports of the cast, she added, “Yes, it is true that we are working together on this untitled venture.”
