Are Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh going to be proud parents next year? Indications are that it is part of the plan.
A source in the know informs that Deepika is turning down all roles after Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak and Kabir Khan’s ‘83. “In fact, she wanted to take a break for motherhood after Chhapaak. But Ranveer was very keen that Deepika plays his wife in ‘83,” the source reveals.
Interestingly, Deepika had earlier taken a year-long sabbatical after the spectacular success of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat to devote her full attention to her then-impending wedding. “When she took that break after Padmaavat, she was being offered the best of films and a remuneration unheard of for a female lead in Bollywood. Now, after marriage, she is ready to take another break when the world is at her feet,” a close friend of hers says. Deepika has had no release since Padmaavat in January 2018. She will be seen only in January 2020 when Chhapaak releases.
