Bollywood actors venturing into production has become a trend in the industry these days. From Salman Khan to Shah Rukh and Priyanka Chopra to Anushka, our B-town celebrities have produced films in their home banner.
It seems another popular actress is set to join the bandwagon. We are talking about Deepika Padukone who is currently basking in the success of her last release Padmaavat.
Grapevines after buzzing with the news that the Tamasha actress might soon don the hat of a producer.
“Deepika is focusing on setting up her own production house. She wants to be associated with interesting and content-driven films. She will soon be donning the producer's hat’’, as per a report in Asian Age.
The Bollywood diva, while talking to PTI, had shown her interest in producing films. The Baajirao Mastani actress had told PTI, “I want to venture into production and be a producer or line producer someday because I feel I have that kind of personality. I like to organize, put things together and make things happen. I don't want to be a producer because I want to make money."
The dimpled beauty, who is recovering from a back injury, is currently busy shooting for the ads of her brand endorsements.
The Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani actress has also signed a new film opposite Piku co-star Irrfan Khan. The Vishal Bhardwaj directorial has been put on hold owing to Khan’s health.
Interestingly, Deepika will join the likes of Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra, in case she forays into production. Anushka has successfully produced films like NH10, Phillauri and Pari in her home banner Clean Slate films.
Priyanka who owns Purple Pebbles production has produced critically acclaimed Marathi film Ventilator under her home banner. The comedy-drama flick had won three National Film Awards.
