Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj, who will direct Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone in a yet untitled film, says he is looking forward to work with the actress as he likes her body of work.

Talking about the film which was earlier supposed to be directed by his assistant director Honey Trehan, Bhardwaj said here: "I wrote the script of that film one to two years ago, but now I am directing it. So I am looking forward to work with Deepika because I like her body of work.

"She is a beautiful actress and I feel the camera loves her."

He is also excited about collaborating with Irrfan.

"After a long time, I am doing a full-fledged film with Irrfan as the main protagonist. After ‘Maqbool', I worked with him in ‘Saat Khoon Maaf' and ‘Haider' in which he had small roles. So, I am really excited that I am getting an opportunity to work with Irrfan in full-fledged film," he said.

Bhardwaj spoke to the media on Tuesday at "Sakhiri" song launch of his close friend Kay Kay Menon's upcoming film "Vodka Diaries". His wife Rekha was also with him.

On the buzz over Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmavat", which is now slated to release on January 25, Bhardwaj said: "I am really happy that ‘Padmavat' is releasing and it is getting a proper release. But I have read that the film is not releasing in Rajasthan, so I am feeling little sad for it as I feel that film should have been released in the entire country when the censor board has given green signal to it".

In other news, the Supreme Court has modified its earlier order on playing the national anthem in cinema halls and has made it non-mandatory.

Reacting to that, Bhardwaj said: ‘I feel we should not argue about Supreme Court's judgment because it is our apex court and they have given right verdict that it should not be mandatory."

Really looking forward to this. Rangoon was messy but vishal is a talented filmmaker and deepika, i feel, has yet to reach her fill potential as an actor. I think he will bring out a new side to her. She’s the most intriguing of the leading ladies today

I really hope it does well and is good. DP has pretty much been on hiatus due to Padmavat. People like Irrfan-DP and Vishal is a great director. Plus, it's a heroine focused film, if she does well, she'll get genuine critical acclaim.

Deepika is the most versatile actress of this generation, very expressive and does it with passion and hard work. Can't wait to watch more of Deepika's films, have been missing her a lot on the big screen

Vidya/Kangana would have killed it....But Deepika is not a bad choice. Hope she lives up to expectations! After Piku this will be her solo outing(So called Women Oriented film)

Flop next

looking forward to it too
