Though audiences were eagerly looking forward to seeing the Piku co-stars Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone sharing screen space yet again in Vishal Bharadwaj’s next, news of Irrfan’s ill health brought into question the project’s fate.

Many have said that the film, tentatively titled film Sapna Didi, is unlikely to be ever get made. But the director confirms that it is very much happening.

 

“The moment Irrfan recovers and comes back, we will start rolling. It will happen,” Bharadwaj says.

Earlier this year, 51-year-old Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour, a rare form of cancer that can attack various parts of the body. However, Vishal, who’s constantly been in touch with the actor, has good news to share with fans. “By God’s grace, he is recovering, and we are all praying for him. We hope he comes back soon and starts working,” he says, adding, “I keep chatting with him, and these days he’s singing songs, recording them, and sending them on WhatsApp. He’s also watching cricket.”
