Newly married couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have something in common to share in 2018. It is directorMeghna Gulzar who will be directing both Ranveer and Deepika, though not in the same film.
While Deepika will be directed by Meghna in the bio-pic on the acid-attack victim Laxmi Aggrawal, Ranveer will be directed soon after that by the Raazi director in a bio-pic on the life and glory of field marshal Sam Maneckshaw.
Sources say the Maneckshaw bio-pic will be a costly project as it requires elaborate recreation of real war sequences.Ranveer will be into heavy preparation for the part,both emotionally and physically.
A director he is very close to says, “Ranveer is the right fit for playing Field Marshal Maneckshaw. But he will be have curb his natural exuberance for a bit. Gravitas is a must.General Maneckshaw is a national hero, revered and iconized. The film can’t afford to go wrong.”
We are sure Ranveer would be up to the task.
