Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s next directorial “Piku” starring megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan will hit the screens April 30, 2015.

The first schedule of MSM Motion Pictures, Saraswati Entertainment Creations Limited (SECL), Sircar and Ronnie Lahiri’s Rising Sun Films’ project will go on the floors in August 2014.

I am looking forward to this fantastic opportunity of working together with such gifted talent from the industry," the "Madras Cafe" director said in a statement.

good on you gurl!

Happy that Deepika is secure and confident enough to do a hatke film like this along with the 'big' films :D You go girl!!

Love to see deepika in different roles with all kind of actors....and different script films......rather then seing some actrees do same type role and films again and again :)

Did Piku not have Aamir in it too?

Thats peekey starring aamir and anushka this is piku :)

Damn excited. Hail Deepika.

I am so excited...especially for my lovely Deepika padukone

Yay, can't wait! Shoojit has made some amazing movies recently! Can't wait for this one!!!

Will defo watch it for Deeps and Irfan Khan, my favorites !

awww i love the way DP is trying to be versatile rather than sticking to only commercial...all the very best, i think it will be very very interesting becoz of all spl people Sr.B, Dp, irfaaaaannnn...my god cant wait till april.....

Deepika is really choosing diverse films..cant wait

All the best my Deeps :)

Yaayyy!! This movie looks really great! Glad that Deepika is experimenting with her roles , she is on a right track .. choosing offbeat films like Finding Fanny and Piku and then at the same time , bagging big films like HNY , BM and Tamasha :)

Flop from the cast

Oh yes, the combination of a legend like Mr Bachchan, acclaimed actor like Irfan, current no. 1 Deepika, talented Bengali actor Jissu along with the writer of Vicky Donor and director Shootjit who has made 2 critically acclaimed films (esp VD)...what a recipe for disaster! :P

Humshakals and Himmatwala must be your favorite films , whats your IQ by the way?

You see , some movies are made not in mind that how much box office business they will do! But are made in mind with right script and right actors , just like lunchbox was last year!!

Can not wait for this one!! So excited!! :-)
