Jisshu Sengupta – Deepika Padukone in Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Piku’

Bengali star Jisshu Sengupta has been signed to romance the reigning queen of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone, in Vicky Donor director Shoojit Sircar’s Piku.

The film already has a huge star cast in amazingly talented actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan.

Jisshu was seen in a special appearance in Anurag Basu’s Barfi and will also be playing Rani Mukherji’s husband in Pradeep Sarkar’s ‘Mardaani’.

Sources close to Shoojit say, he was impressed with Jisshu’s acting histrionics and he also suited the character perfectly.

“It’s a big break with a director I really admire and with actors I really love. It has been my dream to work with Mr. Bachchan from the time I decided I wanted to be an actor. Irrfan-ji is another actor I truly admire” said Jisshu.

Talking about Deepika, he said its been a dream to romance her “As for Deepika, isn’t she everyone’s favourite dream girl these days?”

  • No.. Atleast not mine
    Katrina is far better than her(though not actingwise)
    But deepika too is trailed by actresses like preity rani madhuri kareena vidya.. She is quite overrated.. Its just that her luck is favouring her dese days..!!

  • Deepika did a mistake by signing happy new year, she was lucky for chennai express as it had the tribute of rajnikaanth but hny will flop badly
