Deepika Padukone recently announced that she will be starring in Shakun Batra’s upcoming directorial. The film has a stellar cast including Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday. The announcement made everyone excited and fans can’t wait to see Deepika in a light-hearted film after a very long time. This is the first time the dimpled beauty will be working with not only Shakun but also Siddhant and Ananya.
Now, during an interaction with Hindustan Times, Deepika revealed that the film is not light-hearted as it sounds but of domestic noir genre. For the uninitiated, the genre is described as ‘a literary subgenre within crime fiction’. Meanwhile, DP stated to the portal, “To be honest, you can’t call Shakun’s film ‘light’ either… Although the overall tonality of the film is slightly lighter than my last film, in terms of inner, emotional turmoil my character goes through, it’s quite challenging. The overall genre of the film is something we haven’t seen much in Indian cinema, it’s called domestic noir.”
Deepika added, “I don’t think that’s a genre we are very familiar with, but at the same time, the audience is completely ready for it, as we have been exposed to that genre in different ways, whether through Hollywood films or OTT platforms. What I enjoy and look forward to, as far as this film is concerned, Shakun has this strong point with people and relationships. As an audience/ actor I have enjoyed watching and performing these sort of films, whether Piku (2015), Tamasha (2015), Love Aaj Kal (2009), films that deal with intricate human relationships.”
