There is someone who is totally in awe of Deepika Padukone and it's not Ranveer Singh! It's Irrfan Khan who is completely smitten by Deepika. They have worked in Piku before and the audience loved their unusual on-screen pairing. Now that Irrfan and Deepika are all set to reunite on the big screen again for Vishal Bharadwaj’s next film which is to be produced by KriArj Entertainment (Prerna Arora & Arjun N. Kapoor).
Talking about his experience of working with Dippy in Piku, Irrfan in an interview to a leading news channel said, “This name, Deepika Padukone, it does something to me. I like her very much, as a human being, as an actor. I still remember when we did Piku, we never interacted that much before shooting. But we used to interact while shooting and I used to see her spontaneous response to my thing. There was a kind of give and take which was so special which suddenly made me alive as an actor. I think that is the most beautiful gift to an actor if you get a live actor with you. There is a kind of intelligence in her, the way she crafts her role. Piku’s character could have gone anywhere, you know, it could have become a little annoying character because it was written that way, that she is hyper.”

Vishal Bhardwaj’s next starring Irrfan and Deepika, was said to be based on '80s Mafia queen, Sapna Didi. However, the makers later clarified not the plot is a fictional one and yet untitled.
Coming to Irrfan's admiration towards Deepika, we are sure the actress would be blushing right now...
