Initially Parineeti Chopra was to play Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter in Shoojt Sircar’s Piku, which deals with a different take on the relationship of a father and daughter. Then we heard that the makers of the film were also considering Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor for the same role. However, Pari rejected the offer citing date issues. And now it looks like even Sonam is out of the race.
Yes, it’s none other than Ms Padukone, who will be playing Sr Bachchan’s daughter in Piku. As per the latest buzz, Dippy has been signed by Shoojit for Piku. Besides, the film will also have Irrfan Khan in a pivotal role. However, there isn’t any official confirmation from Deepika or Shoojit.
Dippy has already played Big B’s beti in Aarakshan and this will be the second time when DP plays as Sr Bachchan‘s onscreen daughter.
