Deepika Padukone’s de-glam look for the acclaimed Iranian filmmaker, Majid Majidi is breaking the internet these days. The lady, who was trending last week for her sexy look in the trailer of her maiden Hollywood movie, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, has been grabbing the eye balls these days with her sans make-up avatar in her next International movie with the Iranian director, Majid Majidi. The film is tentatively titled as “Floating Gardens” She was almost unrecognisable in the Salwar Kurta de-galm avatar at Mumbai’s dhobi ghat, where she was spotted shooting for Majid. Apparently, this day-long shoot was held only for Majidi to gauge if Deepika Padukone look suited a prime character in his film.

Majidi has given us some heart warming cinematic gems such as Baran and Children of Heaven, the latter was nominated to receive the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. His last film Muhammad: The Messenger of God depicts the life of Prophet Muhammad with historical and factual accuracy. This time the talented film maker has picked up an Indian story which will be shot in Mumbai, Benaras, Rajasthan, Kashmir and some parts of Uttar Pradesh. The cast and crew of the film will also be majorly Indians.
This is the second time Majidi is collaborating with an Indian talent. India’s Oscar-winning composer, A.R. Rahman had scored the music for his controversial 2015 film, “Muhammad: The Messenger of God”, which was the first of his trilogy on the Prophet’s life. Soon after the release of this film, a Mumbai-based Sunni Muslim group issued a fatwa against him and Rehman. However, that has not deterred him from shooting his new film in India with an all Indian cast and crew. This film which will take off towards the year-end or early 2017 will explore new takes on relationships and emotional quotients.
Majidi’s film will be the second International film for Deepika Padukone after Vin Diesel starrer, xXx: Return of Xander Cage. While she will be seen as a sexy action diva in xXx, she will be reportedly playing the role of a washerwoman in Majidi’s film. On home front, Deepika is shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati which is lined up for December 2017 release. She will be seen with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in the film.
