When the news of Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan being paired opposite each other in ‘Piku’ made news, several people wondered whether this offbeat jodi would make a good pair and whether they would be able to share a good onscreen chemistry. And now, their crackling chemistry has impressed several people, apparently.
While Big B and Deepika will be seen as a quirky father-daughter jodi, Irrfan and Deepika will be seen romantically paired!
A source from the film informed, “Though Irrfan’s love interest is Deepika, the film is not a typical love story. Irrfan-Deepika’s love angle is just one track in the movie, but their onscreen chemistry has taken everyone by surprise.” The source added, “Irrfan is not a usual lover boy, which is what makes him essay this character with a lot of depth.”
The film’s director, Shoojit Sircar, is also reportedly very impressed by the comfortable onscreen chemistry shared by Deepika and Irrfan.
