As the critically acclaimed film, Piku, completes eight years of its release, Deepika Padukone took to her social media to pay tribute to the film and her co-star Irrfan Khan. The actress shared multiple pictures, including a goofy snap with Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan. In the caption, she expressed her gratitude and love for the film’s team and her wish to relive the experience again with Irrfan.
The film, directed by Shoojit Sircar, was a breakthrough for Irrfan, who played a romantic lead for the first time in his career. In an earlier interview, Irrfan had revealed that he always wanted to do a film like Piku that showcased his comic timing and acting prowess. Sadly, the actor passed away last year after a prolonged battle with cancer.
Piku, which tells the story of a father-daughter duo and their journey, struck a chord with audiences and critics alike. Deepika’s portrayal of a headstrong and independent woman won hearts, and her chemistry with Irrfan was widely appreciated. As fans continue to cherish the film, it remains a testament to Irrfan’s legacy and the power of storytelling in Indian cinema.
