Deepika Padukone‘s Padmaavat released in January this year. The film is one of the top grossers of the year so far. The actress was to begin work on her next by Vishal Bhardwaj which also starred her Piku co-star Irrfan Khan but the film was delayed due to Khan’s health condition. Since then, the actress did not sign much, while a few people in the industry said the actress is taking a break as she is getting hitched to boyfriend Ranveer Singh in a few months, a few claimed that the actress is recovering from the chronic back and neck pain she suffered while filming a song in Padmaavat. And now, we hear, Deepika has signed her next which is going to be a superhero film.

According to reports in a popular magazine, “After going through several scripts, Deepika has finally locked one and this is a massive superhero film. Deepika will have various action scenes which fans haven’t seen her doing before. The untitled film will be produced by Fox Star and she’s quite excited about it already.” The actress has been quite keen on doing an action film for a long time now.

A few days ago while talking to Film Companion on the kind of films she wants to do next, the Padmaavat actress had said, “I can’t tell you how many people have said, “can you do another Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani?” But people aren’t making that many love stories anymore. Everyone is making sports biopics. I want to do something fun and light – that’s my brief! And that hasn’t come as yet.” Well, seems like Dippy has finally found something light and fun. We are totally excited to see the actress in a new avatar. What about you? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
